This was taught to me in my food group, and I think it sums up how great goals are accomplished.
People would come in and see people who had lost excess weight and kept it off for years. Not a product…not a sales pitch…actual people who were eating normal foods who once had a problem with their relationship to food.
Their advice was so similar. It was some version of ‘just for today’ meaning do the right things today (eat the right foods at the right times during the day) and over time it all adds up…and it did.
I’ve actually used that so many places. I don’t worry about the big goals. The big goals take care of themselves once you get today in order and rinse and repeat. It’s the habits over time that determine the quality of life. Do the hard habits today…just for today…and life gets easier.
