I don't think I have had a defining moment. For me, the journey is about a lot of little steps and small epiphanies. Looking back, I can see that I gradually went from casual exerciser to devoted gym rat and from junk-food addict to health-conscious eater (with some remaining bad food habits). I have realized that tiny changes work for me and dramatic ones tend to result in a lot of backsliding.
Speaking of which, last week I managed exactly one day with no sweets, although my other days were not as bad as they had been in the previous couple months. This week, my goal is two days in a row--they will be Tuesday and Wednesday.
I hope everyone is having a good Monday.
For you to be here now, trillions of drifting atoms had somehow to assemble in an intricate and intriguingly obliging manner to create you. It's an arrangement so specialized and particular that it has never been tried before and will only exist this once.
