Take Control of Your Life

on April 24, 2013

A Tip of the day from Dr. A…
“Most people fail not because they don’t believe they can do it. They fail because they are not willing to do what it takes to succeed. Your level of commitment will determine whether you work hard to get to your goal or fizzle out and stop short.”
I thought this was worth sharing.  Dr. A has a lot of insights to share about how to reach your goal to live at your ideal weight.  Did you know that you can sign up for Dr. A’s tip of the day by going to www.habitsofhealth.net  and click on the request?
