Illness always messes me up. I fall off the exercise wagon, I start eating tons of empty calories, and suddenly I’m in a bad mood and cranky about my possible success.

Why I can do this:
1. I lost 30 pounds before. I can get this new weight off again–I’ve proven myself before.
2. I have two nights of scheduled exercise a week already. I just need to get people involved in my plans again. (Joined in the hopes that my friends will, too.)
3. I have to. My cholesterol is too high, and I want to have a healthy life.
