Hi Everyone, I'm a newby ... ! I think this is the first step to action : positive engagement.

I am going to try hard to not waver. When I meet a hurdle I will not punish myself , but keep going!! First of Jan today so a good day to begin. I am going to draw up a , work/food/exercise routine with water stops at strategic moments.

Goodluck and Good Health to you out there!! We can change our habits.

Hi, I’m a newbie too. I’m going to send this week organising and planning with the nhs 12 week plan sheets.

Getting to the end of the Xmas food in the house so fruit and veg are colourful welcoming return after all the beige (sausage rolls, bread sticks etc).

I need to increase my water intake and gently introduce exercise.

Being kind to myself should help my motivation.

Never underestimate the power of positive thinking and support in this case!
