These women each made a single good choice that got them there.Cheryl Parker’s was to buy a fitness tracker and take it for a walk one day after work (is that two decisions? Fine, two). Three weeks later, she’d dropped 10 pounds and was finally sleeping through the night again—just from walking.
Take a challenge in this article—and then tackle eight more in 2016 atRodaleU.com/newyearnewyou (we knew you were ambitious).
Stephanie Kilburn, a “nonathletic” single mom, tried weight lifting on a whim, and within a month had lost 3 pounds and felt a new surge of energy and mental power.
It was one smart decision that got Margo Landon to stop dieting and instead pay attention to herself. Within 21 days, she’d lost 5 pounds. A year later, she still eats ice cream yet is 60 pounds lighter.
And it was the simple choice Mona Gable made to commit to compassion—and launch a 21-day mission designed by physician Lissa Rankin—that brought her newfound joy.
Let one good decision catapult you, too. Only you know what you need, so pick a challenge and start walking, lifting, eating differently, ditching your worries—whatever feels most important to you right now. Some plans take 7 days, some 21, one 28; some you’ll do on your own, while for others we recommend joining our online community, because friends make everything easier.
OK, enough talk. Happy New Year! Now go get ’em.
