One Pound at a Time!

Over the years, I've found it easy to accomplish goals outside of myself (ie; jobs, school, family), but now its time to FOCUS on me!

My plan is to lose 90-100lbs. When I joined SP, I divided the weight loss into two phases of 50lbs, because I thought it would be too much to envision all at once. But..... after reading sooo many successful weight loss stories on this website, I can now comprehend and imagine losing 100lbs! I'm going to do this...ONE POUND at a TIME!

But..... after reading sooo many successful weight loss stories on this website, I can now comprehend and imagine losing 100lbs! I'm going to do this...ONE POUND at a TIME!

Below, I am starting a list of success quotes that I have seen on this website. These short quotes have really helped me on my journey to better health:


-Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.

-Discipline is remembering what you want.

-Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort." Franklin Roosevelt

-If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run."
-John Bingham

-If it doesn't CHALLENGE you it doesn't CHANGE you!
-Unknown

- If you are TIRED of starting over, STOP giving up!

-Do or DO NOT, there is no try!
-Jedi Master

-"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."

- George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian

- Fall in love with the "process" and the rest will take care of itself. ~Ernestine Shepherd

I'm learning how to run as well. I'm not very good at it, but I keep plugging away. I've put it on hold a little bit, or at least not as a main focus, until I get finished with this half. I'd like to jog some of it, but as far as training goes, I'm getting up into milages I've never done before, so I figured that stamina should be my bigger focus on the long training days more so that speed. I still do little intervals when I'm doing my shorter days on the treadmills.

I'd really like to do a Biggest Loser race some day. I wish they came a little closer to Richmond. DC is about two hours or so from here. That's a long drive for a 5k. Maybe next year. I know you'll do great on it, and I'm very much looking forward to hearing all about it!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
