All good things come to those who wait.

I have to remember I didn't get this way overnight and it won't go off that way either!

Sometimes I dream about not being overweight ever again, I can't paint but I have a camera!! Can't wait to get there and I will eventually. "Rome wasn't built in a day"!

Keep in mind the story of the tortoise and the hare. Slow and steady won the race. We didn't put on this weight or get in these health conditions over night and we can not improve them overnight either. Slowly, steadily and surely, we will overcome and win the race.

Each day is a new beginning and we are doing great!!! We are worth it and so are our families. I was reading Chapter 3 of the Spark Book and something really stuck in my head -- exercise truly gives you more time instead of taking it. Think about this. emoticon

There's always going to be Holidays, Birthdays, Parties and so on. Cake, cookies, ice cream or whatever, to throw us off guard, that's life. But we got to just hang in there and keep going for our own well being. I've dropped over 40 lbs., but I still have to keep a eye on my salt and cholesterol from here on out. So that means, got to keep going, good days or bad days. 40 lbs lighter is a good thing and the tools to watch the salt and cholesterol is a great thing. Hanging in there and keeping this going is what this is all about. Helping us all live a better life. So, go girl go, hang in there and we can do this......it works, it really does......greenbird75 Lynn emoticon

"Failure at some point in your life is inevitable, giving up is unforgiveable." - Joe Biden (quoting his mom on her words of wisdom throughout his life)

We sometimes have failures in life, but we need to persist, learn from them and move forward....growing as human beings. I know I have had quite a few setbacks here on Spark, from health issues, and I have learned from things and am moving forward every day!

Don't give up!

You must have been reading my mind Holly!

I was going to start a new post tomorrow called, "Motivational Mondays". We do this on a team I am on and it is very encouraging for everyone.

I agree that I lvoe to read words of encouragement to get me through the day sometimes, especially those days that are a little difficult. So thank you for posting this wonderful topic. I look forward to reading and participating in it daily!!

Sometimes when I am feeling a little down I like to read our encouragements to each other but sometimes I am pressed for time and it is difficult to find exactly what I am looking for. I thought if we had one place to go to daily it would help. We could just scoll down and read numerous entries. We all need pats on the back from time to time sooo...if you want to toot your own horn or just post your pep talk to yourself here we can.

I know we are worth it!
Take time for a bubble bath!
