Don't sacrifice what you really want for what you want right now.

I decided to loose weight when I was suffering from heel pain and my mobility was being affected. I was scared I would hurt myself and never be able to recover from it, at 323lbs this was a real possibility!

Taking myself seriously and doing this all for myself is how I have achieved this.

I decided to loose weight when I was suffering from heel pain and my mobility was being affected. I was scared I would hurt myself and never be able to recover from it, at 323lbs this was a real possibility!

Taking myself seriously and doing this all for myself is how I have achieved this.

Weight loss for anybody or reason other than your own reasons doesn't work. You have to want it yourself.

Thats why I set myself very small weight loss goals, never looked at the 'big' picture as it didnt seem achievable. In doing this, remaining positive in meeting these small goals, they all added up into something much bigger and better.

I cannot deny its been hard, I cannot deny its got me down sometimes, but I also cannot deny its worth it.
Its worth being surprised by yourself at finding a motivation you never believed you would have.

I read a wonderful quote by a guy who was over 400lbs and lost, by himself. to 185lbs... he said "If you cannot commit to your life, how can you commit to anything in it?"
How true is that? If your goals and ambitions and your LIFE are less important than a pizza or a cake then it really IS time to re-evaluate yourself.

Hi Pookie, I hope the rain stops soon! We have had our share lately and it doesn't make for bright days. I hope you and your family are doing well. Thank you for your concern about my being sick. I am on a steroid for 5 days and have an inhaler. Feeling better, just worn out. Enjoy the rest of your week-end! emoticon June
