Trust The Process

Thursday, April 25, 2013

The society we're in makes everything seem to move so fast now.

It's sometimes hard to wrap your head around the fact that even though you're becoming the healthiest you can be, making all the necessary changes, tracking everything you eat, drinking your water, and moving your body, that you can't speed the process along!

My Grandma said, "It takes as long as it takes." And she's right!

So relax, enjoy, learn what works for you, and trust the process. You'll get there. Each step you take leads you closer to where you want to be.

    This is actually true concerning everything in life, not just weight loss. Thanks for reminding us. My grandmother used to say the same thing! emoticon emoticon

    I love, love, love this. i have kept it up wanting to comment but not making the time. Trust the process has always been my husbands saying and true belief. He believes that the key is to focus on doing what you are supposed to do and it is as simple as that. Interesting. i am finding over the years that he is right.

HUGS to you. Great blog!

    I have never ever really felt the importance of baby steps until I started with Spark. I am learning daily and not suffering or depriving myself of anything, really. I give up what I want, and I learn new ways to prepare some of my favorite things. The slower the process -- the better and more I learn!

Well said! emoticon

    Yup, it's a process rather than an event...and we're always moving "along the way"... if we don't quit

    Got that right! This isn't the biggest loser and we are not going to lose over 100 lbs in 3 mths! (Why do they put shows like that on TV that give people false hope?) This is real life and good things come to those who wait, but also to those who are willing to put in the hard work to get there. We didn't get this way overnight and we can't fix it overnight, but we CAN fix it with dedication, work, determination and motivation and Sparkpeople! emoticon
