Baby steps are paying off!

Saturday, November 14, 2009

I started this journey in August. I had the willingness but I wasn't sure about the perseverance. I have a pattern of burning myself out on diets after a few weeks or months. This time I vowed it would be different, and it has been.
I have come and gone from the fitness tracker and from the blogs and even from my own sparkpage, but I have kept eating sensibly (and not throwing in the towel on the days when I have eaten not so sensibly . . .) and I have stayed on track.

I have lost 14 pounds since August. I could have lost more, sure, but these are 14 pounds that I know are NEVER coming back . . . because I am changing my lifestyle. I am finding ways to make exercise fun and a priority. I am changing my family tree too. I am doing this now because I want to be fit and healthy when I get pregnant in the near future.

So this is me reporting in that perseverance pays off. That baby steps can get you through even the longest of marathons. And now something I never thought I'd say, I am off to go for a hike with my husband!

Have a great day!

    One of my favorite saying is " GOD appreciates the baby steps." What baby learns to walk and goes back to crawling? Eventually she'll learn to run and leap for joy and so will you. emoticon

    What a great post!! I too am doing it in baby steps and am so encouraged by not only the progress in weight loss, but I am proud of myself and feel great too. Best of luck as you keep sparking along. *smiles*
