"A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn’t will find an excuse.”
I have this quote on a sticky on my desktop - not sure where i got it - must be from someone's blog here on SparkPeople - or perhaps one of the inspirational quotes. But it so applies to me today.
I met with Elaine this morning for our visit and time of Bible study. And we talked about our weight - she was at the doctor yesterday and he basically told her she needs to loose some weight. So we have decided to encourage each other. Now we need to set goals and a time-frame. I want to loose 25 pounds this year - that is only 2 pounds a month. Does sound doable - but it won'd happen if i don"t find a way - and not find excuse!!
I love the challenges from the teams that i am a part of - but I sign up and then do not always follow thru. I can read all the encouraging blogs from others who have been successful, but that won't help me if i do not apply what I learn! Like taking my meds for my blood pressure. I put them in my pocket to take later - and then in the evening take them out of my pocket and put on my dresser. My son keeps telling me they do not work by osmosis - i really do have to swallow them for them to work. And so it is, with losing weight, I have to eat better and become more active - - - - - - - - - -
