Wise words

When you are consistent in your healthy habits, magic is happening in your body and mind, even if the scale isn't moving. - Coach Jen

I recently blogged about my disappointment on my weight loss progress, and after receiving a very nice comment reminding me that "a loss is a loss" and reading this quote by coach Nicole, I see things with a different eye.

I have had a really consistent 12 weeks! I have been to the gym at least 5 days a week, I'm tracking my food, making healthy choices, and checking in here on SP daily. I'm feeling more energetic, and most definitely better about myself, and my general moods are much brighter. Those are 180 degree turn arounds from November. I felt "helpless" to stop my downward spiral, and wouldn't take the first step to make the changes I needed. But for the past 12 weeks (84 days) I have made the choice to take back the power I had given away. I've chosen everyday to eat well, and get moving, and I know that nothing but good will come from those choices.

I still have much work to do, but, I'm capable, and I'm able, so I will do the work!

    Locking in that consistency is better than money in the bank! :-)

    emoticon "I'm Capable and I'm Able"!!! What more can one ask for -- Especially when you get to a "Mature" Age?

    Words of wisdom, indeed! I have been stymied as far as weight loss is concerned for ages, but I know that my lifestyle is better for me in so many ways that it is worth it anyway!

    Let us live and walk by faith, and not by sight, for faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. God Bless YOU! Vic.
