Steep Hills

Monday, July 08, 2013

When I started on this journey seriously, I knew it was going to be difficult, but had no idea! Self-negativity (is there such a phrase?), sliding backwards, moving, but not always forwards. I have come to the realization that no matter what, I will continue this quest. It may take me a lot longer than I had anticipated (and, believe me, I had already anticipated a LONG time!) or my goals may still be unrealistic, but none of that matters because I will keep heading toward the top of that mountain, no matter what! This is a huge decision because I have given up many times in the past, but I don't see it happening this time. I have never had such a huge support system before. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon You are the best!

    A group of supportive friends can make all the difference when it comes to climbing those steep hills! That's what makes SP so great. The journey is always so much more enjoyable with friends. emoticon

    I love your quote, that is how it was for me slow, but I am ok I finally got to where I wanted to be, and sometimes I go backwards and that is ok. You can do it slow and steady , and you have your friends to cheer you on. emoticon

    Great attitude... we don't have to start over if we continue to refuse to give up.... we must keep on keeping on... there is no finish line.... as long as we're breathing we must choose to continue our journey to be the best we can be!!!

Have a wonderful day!

  I want you to know that even though I am not there in person, I am going up those hills with you every time, every step of the way!

    Yes, you have to be and remain discipline. I wish I had a chef who would cook and portion it out for. I did not have to go to work, so I could go and workout without scheduling issues. But I will stay the course. Love the picture. emoticon emoticon

    Switching to a healthy lifestyle isn't easy for anyone... no matter how easy they make it look!

You can do it! emoticon

    The thing I find is that I have to keep reminding myself that there really is no destination. I'm on this for life. So, speed then seems to be so much less of an issue. It takes the mental game out of it for me.

Wishing you a wonderfully successful day!
