The Tortoise and the Hare---in other words---keep going!
Monday, September 09, 2013
I've been thinking a lot about just plain sticking with it. You see, several years back I was on Spark People, but then dropped it for 3 years. What's the excuse we always give ourselves? Just too busy.
Another rationalization I used was that I wasn't losing weight fast enough.
So I quit SP for 3 years.
A few days ago, I joined again and my jaw dropped when I saw my last posted weight. AAAGH! I weighed 40 lbs. less 3 years ago.
Sooo. I was unhappy that I wasn't losing weight faster, quit, and then the weight piled on. MMM...this is almost cliche. I should have just hung in there.
Saw a quote on a friend's blog which is so true: "Never give up on a dream just because of the length of time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway."
