Daily Commitment Thread for 2020 -- JUST FOR TODAY

Happy New Year to all the friends I have met on here!

Here is a new thread for us ... a fresh start for the year 2020!!

I originally started this thread in 2017 .. when I was at my all time highest weight, and so down and discouraged with myself. This is the 4th year now that I am again starting this thread. Losing weight is not easy, and it takes daily commitment. Losing weight also means changing years of bad habits into good habits, and that also does not come easy. It takes daily commitment. If we fail one day, we can always start fresh the next day. This is why this thread is called "JUST FOR TODAY". Because that is all we need to do ... try and do something to improve our habits and lifestyle for just one day.

In this thread, we set daily goals each day. Then the next day, be accountable, and say how you did with those goals, and set new goals. Some of us are very busy, actually most of us are!. So the goals can be very simple, or they can be like a " to do" list. But it is about not giving up and being accountable, and having a group of posters to encourage you to hang in there, and keep going.

So I invite anyone who would like to join us. This is not a group .. anyone can join. And the more you post, the more you get to know other posters, and have that great support and encouragement. This is a thread where we can vent if we need to, ask for help when we have had a bad day, get motivation when we are struggling, and have us as a cheerleader when you have had a good day. It is a thread where each day starts fresh ... one day at a time. Because that is how we can change unhealthy habits to good, healthy habits, one day at a time.

        Hi all! I fell way off during the holidays but I'm back.

        My goals for 2020:

        1. Prioritize health and wellness, both physically and mentally
        2. Exercise regularly
        3. Maintain the house instead of letting it go and doing major cleaning
        4. Get pregnant (I'm with you on this @HEGoddard0928 !!)
        5. Cook more frequently

        I actually cooked today for the first time in a while and made a nice healthy dinner! I also stayed within my calories for the first time in idk how long.

        I'll be back to post goals in the morning, happy New Year everyone!!

        @HEGoddard0928 and @aubyshortcake ... hoping for pregnancies for both of us in 2020. You'll have lots of us who want to be "aunties" again!

        Happy to see a new post for 2020.

        I haven’t made any goals yet for the year or even had a chance to think a lot about it.

        Hubby and I just had an argument our first in quite a while but my first thought was why do I want to be here. I want to be happy and I want to have a husband that I wants to please me as much as I want to please him. I don’t think he does and I don’t think the small things I do are appreciated. Maybe I’m wrong but right now it sure doesn’t feel like it. Maybe I need to focus on that this year getting and keeping a happy marriage or being alone.

        I’ll come up with some goals soon.

        So sorry to hear that your new year is starting out this way. You guys have both been under a lot of stresses lately .. praying that things can get better for you, or that you can have some peace, whatever that would mean. Hugs dear friend.
