President's Day 2018

Written by 

President's Day is a US federal holiday and is on the third Monday of February each year.

This includes our most famous Presidents since they seem to have been born in February. Records show that George Washington's Birthday is on February 22nd; Abraham Lincoln's is February 12th. (Click here for more of the specifics.)

It used to be that both Washington's Birthday and Lincoln's Birthday were individual celebrations and people spent time really reflecting on the contributions of the country's historic leaders and honoring them in various ways. Now it just seems people take advantage of the extra day off from work and go play or shop, which isn't wrong, but some attention should still be paid to reflect  on what these presidents have done for our great country. Let's at the very least consider their great honesty.

Thanks to many of our great teachers, students all over the US are still spending time learning about the history of the United States and the social responsibilities that come with being a citizen of the country during the month of February. Facts like below.

Washington commanded the Continental Army and led the American colonies to victory in the Revolutionary War, served as first President of the United States of America, and earned the sobriquet "The Father of Our Country."

Incidentally, to this day George Washington's farewell address is also read in the Senate every February 22nd February - a tradition kept since 1862. During the Civil War it was read more than once in a year in order to boost morale.

But in general, whether it be about a president or you as a dieter, remember honesty is to tell the truth, to others and even to yourself, maybe especially to yourself when you need to lose weight! Integrity is having strong moral principles based on your honesty to follow those principles. So many people literally feel so much guilt when they cheat on a diet, they do not want to be honest about what they eat. Just remember the staff at CMWM are not here to scold or judge you, we are here only to support you with your efforts. We know just how hard it is to lose weight. So, the more open and honest you are with us, the better we can actually help you. (And remember if you have a tough time admitting you're cheating, the scale doesn't lie.)

So strive to have the same honesty as our past presidents. This honesty ultimately is more about your quality of life and your health enabling you to have even more of a happier and satisfying life in this great country. Despite its flaws and shortcomings, it's still a great place to live.

"Every lie is two lies - the lie we tell others and the lie we tell ourselves to justify it." - Robert Brault
