So, I have officially begun this Dietbet and I am happy to say that I am on track... of course it is only a few hours into the whole thing ;o)

It occurred to me as I walked this morning that there will be days that I don't feel like working out; there will be days that I feel like eating everything in sight; there will be days when I want to sleep and watch TV and forget that I have a goal in mind with the honorable intention of winning a bet and proving to myself that I can do it- all of these are likely to happen at least once for sure in the next 28 days. However, it also occurred to me that I am in charge of myself. No rules, no laws, no authorities have more command over my day-to-day living than I do, and I need to tell myself everyday to take full responsibility for my choices, my attitude, my behaviors, and my feelings in order to face down the challenges that come and successfully condition my mind to overcome them. I take comfort in this. No one knows me better than I know myself, and I know that I cam capable of self-control and discipline even when I really don't "feel like it". Everyday I will remind myself of this truth, and I am confident that I will make it 28 days with success and confidence that I did all I could, for as long as I could, to make it to the goal that I have determined to make it to.


Good luck everyone- and stay in charge!
