Life's problems wouldn't be called "hurdles" if there wasn't a way to get over them. ~Author Unknown
I really love this quote as I can just picture athletes going over what sometimes can seem like insurmountable hurdles and they eventually CAN accompish the task at hand.
I saw my GYN doctor today and I was mentioning that I had a set back and felt like I have failed because I didn't reach my goal and have gained 50 pounds. She reminded me that I have still lost ~200 pounds without surgery and that is a success! I am fighting my all or nothing thinking so I am seeing the process of learning to climb hurdles and that doesn't happen all at once. So I slipped back a bit, but that does not make ME a failure. Life's problems get in the way and I am going to keep fighting! Right now I have a positive attitude about life's hurdles and myself!
