You have to do the walking.


Tuesday, August 26, 2014



One of the hardest things about any journey is the length of time it takes to get to our destination. Just like being a kid in the backseat of the car, we keep asking, "Are we there yet?" We want to get there as fast as we can.

I always thought I wanted that, too, but on THIS journey, I'm glad I'm taking it slow. I learn so much about myself along the way -- about what I can & "think" I can't do.

Just do the walking. Hang in there! Keep pushing! We'll get there in due time. emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Yes, enjoy the journey. This journey will not end either at goal weight. The journey is a lifetime.

    I needed to hear this today. This is taking far longer than I'd ever anticipated, since weight would just drop off of me when I was in my twenties. I keep telling myself that when I lose the weight, I don't want it to find me again!!! I've made several detours, u-turns, and 180s in the last 3 years, but my feet are still on the path to getting healthier!! Thank you for the reminder to keep on keeping on!

    I agree, great point! I did keep wishing I could get to my goal quicker, but am finally accepting the fact that it is a good thing that it takes so long. I am learning so much along the way that I couldn't possibly learn if it was a quick fix. Keep on keepin on! emoticon

    Yes, it's not all about the destination . . . it's all about the journey. WE have to stop and smell the roses along the way to appreciate it!

    "Getting there" is just half the journey. "Staying there" is the other part. The journey is a lifetime. emoticon
