As an aside to that, just about anyone in the midwest or east coast in the USA is going to be deficient. We need that beautiful sunlight to help our bodies synthesize it! Sunlight is great for your body in moderation and can make you feel happier and more grounded. Pair that with a good Vitamin D supplement and healthy, whole foods and voila... a healthier you. :-)
Thanks! Vit. D positive affects have been knwn for quite some time but we don't get enough now and it is very important. All dietary supplements are not alike so be aware of what you take. Excellent information.
Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner. Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

"When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.” Mr. Rogers
