Hi Jodi - I think the key is to start making small changes to your lifestyle, things that you can keep doing forever. This might be starting to drink more water, then adding a bit of exercise (or a bit more) into your daily activities, then reducing the sugary stuff in you diet. If you do these things gradually, I reckon you've got a greater chance of success than making sudden dramatic overnight changes.
By setting small goals and achieving them, you'll be empowered by the feeling of success, rather than feeling like a failure when you eventually slip up on your "diet".
So what's one thing you can do tomorrow to set you on the right path to a happier and healthier future?
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
