There is no easy way out!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, December 05, 2012



I know there have been times in my life when I have wished there was an easy way or a "magic pill" to lose weight. I can also tell you that I have tried many, many things, but nothing has worked except hard work, dedication, perseverance & the support of others.

SparkPeople is what you make it. You can still try to do this on your own, but I am having much more success with the support of my SparkFriends & I know others are, too.

I have also learned something about myself on this journey. I am a better person, a stronger person, for doing the hard work. I don't get as discouraged when the scale isn't moving because I know in my heart I've been making those healthy choices day in & day out & I've been exercising like I'm supposed to.

Remember . . . slow & steady wins the race.

So, roll up your sleeves & let's get to work!!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for this encouragement. It's tempting, when hearing of the success of others, to assume that they're somehow better or more self-controlled or have some other advantage over oneself, but as you say, there is no easy way. We just have to work at it, and if we do that, perhaps we 'ordinary' folks can become successes too.

I sure hope so.

    SO SO TRUE! Everyday I think about the changes that I have made and how much better I feel. I love the support spark people offers but it is up to me to make the changes and continue with the changes to see the difference it can make! emoticon emoticon emoticon
