“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt
Wow, Anne, that's fantastic! I read your story and noted how you reassessed when you detected a slow weight climb and got yourself back on track. That's just the sort of inspiration and common sense we need. Thank you and congratulations!
