A goal .....

"A goal without a plan is just a wish". Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I like these inspirational quotes. They give me a lot to think about and motivation to do things.

For example, "A great pleasure in life is doing something that others say you cannot do. Walter Bagehot. Well, 2 doctors said to think of my weight loss as a lost battle because of my illness, the medicines I take and my muscle weakness. This has given me the extra push I need to try even harder to lose the weight. I have tried to walk and diet this past year with absolutely no success. In the last 3 weeks after finding Sparkpeople and this new motivation, I have started to walk everyday (even if it is a little bit) and have lost 7 kgs. I am anxious to see if I physically can do this, lose the weight although I now know it is possible with determination and hard work.

    I'm so glad you are ignoring what your doctors said and trying to do this for yourself. Aside from weight loss, the heart muscle exercise in the form of cardio would seem very beneficial. And making good choices with foods bathes our body in important nutrients. One of my spark friends started out at one mile and a cane. She now can walk 4 miles without the cane. Yes, it took about 3 years, but she was determined and she has done it. Does she still experience pain? Yes, some, nothing like she did before. Don't give up on yourself, EVER. Doctors have been wrong before....many times before. The human spirit is strong and awesome and it is our biggest advantage. Believe....and you WILL achieve.

And, thank you for your great advice on my blog re the food events. After you posted, I made a couple of calls to find out the menus and am feeling much more postiive about the weekend eating.

Wishing you a spectacular Friday! Keep on keepin' on! emoticon

    And it won't be long that it doesn't seem to be "hard work" anymore! We're all on this journey together.

    I heard that quote just the other day from somebody else; it must be my time to 'hear' it!

I really like Antoine de St Exupery - inspirational.
