You say this year is going to be the
year you WILL get to a healthy weight! I believe you can live healthier. Print
out the following New Year’s Pledge. Read it and then sign. Keep it in a place
where you can read it everyday.
New Year’s Resolution Pledge
I hereby pledge to myself
to make my body healthier. There are three ways to make my body healthier. This
year I will work on all three.
I pledge to eat healthier. I will eat at least five fruits and vegetables a
day. I will drink at least 8 cups of water per day. This means I will not
starve myself or even skip meals. I know food is important for my body to
run. I will allow myself to have enough yet not too much.
I pledge to move my body more. I will find ways everyday to get my heart
pumping. I will take the stairs or offer to walk more places. I will dance.
I will play. I will run. My body will thank me.
and most importantly, I pledge to love myself. I will think positively about
my weight loss efforts even on days I eat more than I want. I will be proud
of who I am and proud of my body. I will reward myself with something other
than food for my hard work every week. Instead of eating to make myself feel
better, I will find ways to express myself. I know I will be sad, mad,
bored, lonely, or stressed this year. This year, though, I will find ways to
feel better without food.
Losing weight is very hard
work. It is good work, though. This year you will be healthier. Remember to not
give up since losing weight takes time. Believe in yourself and remember that I
believe you can do it!
Make this a healthy year!
Your name here
Your friend, Lucy
