You can't get healthy overnight.  It comes from daily making choices that move you closer to being healthy and forgive yourself on the unhealthy choices you made in the past!  They say it takes 21 days to make something a habit, so take one thing you want to improve on and do it for 21 days.  Once it is a habit pick something else.  Before you know it you are on your way to a healthier you!
