Your Decisions Today Will Change Your Tomorrow

One month of working out with a personal trainer and I can tell you this is one of the best decisions I've made.  There are no huge significant changes, but I do feel better.  My knees don't hurt like they used to and that's a big plus.  Inches have been dropped, but no loss of weight, yet.  But, the weight shouldn't be a governing tool.  Losing inches is a better indicator of improvement.  
Change isn't going to happen over night.  It took awhile to get to this point, and it will take awhile to return.  The important thing is to just take one step at a time, one day at a time.  Stay the course and the results will follow.    
Make it a lifestyle change!   Be determined!!   Decide today to CHOOSE, and take control!

Your decisions today will change your tomorrow.

YOU can do it, too!!!
