Why it will be different.

My mind has been worried about "will" it be different this time. I see so many people re-starting with the first of the year. I am in that group....... once again, and the data says something like 85% will fail by February.
However; as I processed my thoughts, I realized all the factors that are different this year as I continue on this journey. I realized that I needed to focus on "why" it will be different rather than "will" it be different.
So, "WHY" will it be different?
This is my first New Year as a Spark member.
Although a retired shy extrovert living in rural America, my SP friends and the relationships that we have built are a tremendous help. I can always reach out to them. I am not alone.
My SP friends have greatly influenced my "health" and "diet" knowledge and motivation, so I am so much more prepared then previously to enter into this New Year.
The SP community feed is always there for me to gain inspiration.
I have spent the last 6 months making countless little changes that are so much more conducive to health and weight loss. I am not 100% with great decisions, but I make great decisions dramatically more then ever.
What it boils down to is that for the first time, I am entering the New Year with the tools that I need for success.
Wow! It feels cool.........but scary.
