"A book is written one page at a time,
A journey is taken one step at a time,
Our lives are lived one day at a time,
Make your goals attainable,
Small goals build upon themselves and turn into big achievements.
Sometimes I become frustrated when I think about the big #'s of pounds I must shed and feel that I will never get there. Part of me wants to see fast results like you see on Biggest Loser but the other part of me knows that is unrealistic. I have attempted the weightloss journey before but never really committed myself 100% and I would just give up completely. Part of me really had not yet comprehended what losing weight really means which is lifetime long lifestyle changes and not temporaritly food restrictions and exercise. We are not here to simply lose weight. We are here to transform and change our entire life. But this takes patience, and alot of work not only physically but emotionally too. I for one cannot make 1 week committments, I can only take it ONE DAY AT A TIME. Hoping that each new day I am still possessing my enthusiasm and motivation to get me through the day. I am happy to have found SP when I did because I have come this far because of them. I am more focused on what I need to do but I still have alot of work and alot to learn but I am hanging on to SP and trying to stay active daily here to make my days go faster and to stay enthusiastic about this hard journey. Along the way I hope to drag with me towards the road of recovery whoever comes in front of me.
Let us use everything that SP has to offer for our benefit and to help others like us.
