“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”
― Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
Everybody encounters a brick wall or twenty while they're on this journey. For me, it was June and July. It waS two emergency surgeries and the death of my grandmother. It halted progress. I momentarily gave up. The wall seemed too great.
Today I read that Randy Pausch quote and clarity instantly hit me. I don't want to BE fat anymore. I don't want to FEEL fat anymore. I'm not someone that backs down from a challenge. I don't quit on other people....why am I quitting on myself?
I must finish this journey.
