I'm not telling you it's going to be easy - I'm telling you it's going to be worth it. The quote that inspired me to get to onederland in the 2014 Spring 5% Challenge.

Slow and Steady
Remember the fable about the tortoise and the hare? The hare got off to a zippy pace and seemed sure to win. But he didn't, did he? The tortoise, while naturally much slower than the hare, kept moving steadily towards the finish line and was able to cross first.
What's the take-home message of this fable? Slow and steady wins the race. To reach your weight-loss goals, you need to switch from the hare's to the tortoise's mindset. In other words, you must break the "all or nothing" mentality.

Do you start diets with super superhuman resolve determined to eschew temptation and work out seven days a week only to fall off the wagon and give up hope?

This kind of approach to anything especially to your health can be very appealing, even motivational. Hey, I'm telling you right now it's the most dangerous way to set out. Human beings are imperfect. When you do skip a workout or give in to temptation (something we all do), you're more likely to throw in the towel.

So, start thinking like a tortoise. Pace yourself. Have a slice of pizza and take a day off now and then, but don't stray too far from the path that will you to your goals.

Hi all,
This morning I was making a blog entry on my page and I decided to go back and read my blogs. Has anyone done this?

It was a real eye-opener to see the journey I have been on in just the last couple of weeks since I joining SP. It was very, very, very encouraging and has motivated me to not get discouraged.

No wonder they encourage us to journal daily or at least every other day. In good moods and bad moods. We say things that when we review them, we see hope all through our own writing. And we get to know ourselves so much better. We remember the bad moments and the "vows" we made to do better.

I am so glad I did that.

The last couple of days have not been so good emotional-wise and just reading my own words brought me hope and comfort.

Has anyone else found this to be true?

What you resist...persists.

It is, as it is.

This, too, will pass!
