My Success Story:

Monday, September 03, 2012

What's that you say? How can she be writing about her success when she's
only 25+ pounds into her 150 pound goal? The fact that I am typing this
here on SP is a mark of my success. If I waited until I hit that 150 pound
mark to celebrate, I would have quit before I started. So every day I
celebrate my success...even on the crap days. If I stumble on my path
(what? I should say "no" to duck confit hash???), I acknowledge it, but
revel in the fact that I am still walking in the right direction.
I feast on the pounds and inches lost, I savor the fact that I can actually put clothes into the “too large” pile, and I positively relish the sweaty sense of accomplishment that follows each workout.
My success story is that I finally realized what I want for myself, and that I am actually capable of giving it to myself. So a big WHOOHOO for me, and everyone else here who takes the tiniest (or largest) step in the right direction!
