You have to accept whatever comes
and the only important thing is that
you meet it with courage
and with the best that you have to give.
- Eleanor Roosevelt
Success seems to be connected with action.
Successful people keep moving.
They make mistakes, but they don't quit.
- Conrad Hilton
We keep moving forward, opening new doors,
and doing new things, because we're curious
and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
- Walt Disney
You know it is funny who ever thought just trying to lose a few pounds would be so hard? I mean come on now this is simple right? I mean It came on so darn easy it seems but the taking off if really a mind thing. Mind over food. I mean that should be simple....you set your mind to it and the rest falls into place...right???? WRONG. The gaining was the easy part the losing seems to be the hardest job i've ever undertaken. But I have to be honest it is the most fullfilling experience next to child bearning. I mean really there is a science to how our bodies work. We are just learning about that day in and day out. We know what the books tell us to do, we know what we should eat, we know how much exercise we should be getting....but really the truth is our bodies are all so different.
I recently had a team mate reach her goal weight. Oh I was so happy for her but at the same time I was jealous. I mean here i'm struggling and for months it seems and she just cruised on in and swept past me and eased into the finish line. I"m still bringing up the rear. But in reality she had the same struggles I did. She just figured hers out a lot sooner than I did. We each will reach our goals. We just may take a bit longer than some and be quicker than others. So I'm taking my lead from a dear friend ( thanks lou) and i'm going to take this one day and one pound at a time. I mean really I can't go much faster than that in any case so why stress me out about it. One pound at a time will get me to my goal just like doing it in giant leaps and heck it may even stay off if I do it this way. So today is day three for me and sticking to my daily goals. So far I have had moments but i've talked myself out of them. I want this. I'm serious about wanting this or I sure would of given up a long time ago. I mean each day I pick myself up and dust myself off and start fresh. That says a lot about each of us here. We want this and we are going to get it......ONE POUND AT A TIME.
