BUILD UPON WHAT YOU BUILD
You may not think you have what it takes to persist in your efforts for long periods of time. Yet all you must do is persist for just a moment, and then another moment, and then another.The energy necessary for achievement is never going to be fully available to you when you begin. But go ahead and begin, and that energy comes to you as you require it. Do not be dismayed at how long the journey will take. Instead, be thankful and enthusiastic about the one particular step you can take right now. Success creates its own capacity for fulfillment as it moves along. Your job is to keep moving it along. Give your best to the task at hand. That will prepare you and equip you for the next task, and the next. Build what you can with what you have, and then build upon what you build. In this simple, steady, accessible way, whatever you envision is within your reach.

THE VALUE IS IN THE DOING
Behind every fortune is someone who has labored long into the night to make it real. Behind every important discovery is a person who often grew weary searching for it. Behind the magnificent work of art is an artist who spent hour after hour, month after month toiling at tasks that were tedious and seemingly endless. Behind the beautiful, soaring music is a composer who carefully arranged each note, each pause, each crescendo into place. Take heart. Your effort cannot help but pay off. The fact is, your effort is the payoff. The fortune, the discovery, the work of art, and the music, as grand as they are, serve as mere tokens of the achievement. The real achievement is in the achieving, and the real value is in the doing. Sincere, focused effort makes your life rich, even as you do it. Make the effort and the reward is guaranteed. For the biggest reward is in the doing.

LOL! You're right- lots of similarities! Aren't these last few pounds just a buggar to get off? My body really seems to want to hang on to them, but I'll get 'em off eventually!

Hi,
You are so inspirational 4 kids, husband and work and you managed to get fit. This makes me a true believer and a motivated one that there really isn't an excuse. We give each other the excuses, just because we want to be lazy and not give a penny about. Super Inspiration. Thanks for the great words.
