I have so many things I want to do. I have been blaming others for my failure to follow through with any of my ideas.I am now willing, ready, and able to accept responsibility for launching my dreams.
I have enjoyed reading "Ada's Rules," an enjoyable novel about one woman's weightloss motivation and her journey.
"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible..... It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice. Big things are built one brick at a time. Victories are achieved one choice at a time. A life well lived is chosen one day at a time. Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!" -Lysa TerKeurst
Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort! Hugs, Pixie
"The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it. Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing. People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful." -Michael Josephson
Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort! Hugs, Pixie
"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks. We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects. One setback is one setback...it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you." -Jillian Michaels
Thanks for stopping by. All is well with me, and I hope it is with you as well.
I discovered The Fast Metabolism Diet the end of June and really got started on it the 1st of July. I am on my last week of my 3rd 28 day cycle and have lost 17 lbs and 19.5 inches.
I would recommend this way of life to anyone, especially anyone that is a slow loser like me. I have been on SP since Jan. 2008 and have gone up and down until I found The Fast Metabolism Diet. In Jan. of 2008 I set my goal at 125 lbs and I am now past the half way mark. I just have 36.6 lbs to go.
Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come." -Og Mandino
Thanks for the compliment on my page decor! I love decorating my page, and I change it up kind of often. I guess I get bored easily, lol. I hope you are having a healthy weekend! Hugs, Pixie
Thanks for dropping in to check me out. I'm so busy at work at the moment, that I am not tracking, but still being aware and still losing :-) I'm doing 11 hour days at school and bringing work home too - a long week!!
