"Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness.
Happiness is the way.
So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one."
~ Souza

It is all about the journey.  Life goes on. If we continue to do as we have always done, then a few months from now  we will remain where we are with no change.  We will be no closer to reaching our goals. 
So now is the time to make the changes that need to be made and maybe more important than that is to enjoy the journey.
No need to keep dreaming of what will be.  We shape our own future by what we do right in the here and now.  There is no need to feel persecuted and upset by what is.  Live today as best you can, make those changes, be disciplined and above all be happy with yourself. 
I know that when I am eating right, and taking care of who I am, that I experience true happiness, true joy.  I find at the end of the day that I am happy with my decisions, I am happy to have stayed on plan, I am happy to be me.  I am not going to bed and thinking tomorrow I will get my act together and start eating healthy and start doing what I should be doing, instead I am thinking what a great day and I lived it the way I wanted..healthy and fit.
