I'm really glad that reading and commenting on other's blogs was part of the challenge this week. My initial gung-ho spirit had begun to fade a bit towards the end of this week. But I found so much motivation reading everyone's blogs.
Seeing how other people are sticking with it, overcoming major obstacles, doing great, or doing crappy but with a great attitude has totally made me feel like I can do it too. Also commenting on blogs about feeling discouraged was really encouraging to me too, because for one thing it reminded me that everyone has crappy times, and for another it reminded me of all the great advice and support I've already received that I could then impart on that person. So that knowledge was right at my fingertips when I started to feel crappy too. And I would say to myself, I just told someone that it's not all about the scale, to focus on small victories and take it one step at a time - I should do that too!
