Every time you feel like you've fallen off of your path and goals, you haven't. This is the time when you should nurture yourself and pick yourself back up, not beat yourself up. Dust yourself off and keep going, because you're changing your lifestyle, bettering your health, and you CAN do it.

Also I suggest reading the comment below this one.... And so on. :)

My Goals:
-199 lbs (Only 1.5 lbs away from goal 1!!!) (CW: 201.5 lbs)
-185 lbs
-178 lbs
-169 lbs
-156 lbs
-150 lbs

My Mother-in-law, God rest her soul, used to get up every morning with a smile on her face and say, "This is the day the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it." A happy and grateful attitude sets the tone for the day and all of the work there is to do in it. Don't be discouraged.....the longest journey starts with a single step.....remember the story of the tortoise and the hare...slow and steady wins the race. This is not change for an hour or a day, this is change for the rest of our lives. We Can Do It!!

When I don't have the umph to move I tell myself to get outside and do a 5 minute pick-up. I usally end up staying outside longer when I do this. Its amazing what a little fresh air will do for you.

It's not easy. If it was we'd all be thin all the time without any effort. Effort is worth it. Just because you slip doesn't mean you have to fall.

I got really hungry yesterday. On normal days like that I binge until I just don't feel good anymore. I didn't do it. I drank water and went to bed early and worked though that need to binge. Isn't that cool? I feel stronger today and really like I can DO IT! emoticon

There is nothing you can't do as long as you try.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life,
his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of
his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotin

Let health and fitness be a journey, not a just a destination to your ideal weight.

On this journey take an opportunity to get to know yourself in ways you may have never known, or re-discover yourself. This is your chance to find out what works for your body, find out what motivates you, and to explore new ways to overcome challenges that used to set you back.

My biggest lesson, thus far, has been that for every exercise I cannot do (do to physical limitations or mental ones) there is something I CAN do.

I have changed my thinking from, "I can't do that, it is too hard/hurts too much/takes too long!" to, "I wonder what I haven't tried yet that I might like!"

the changes that count are the changes that
get you focused on being the best you can be...
If a year from now, you find yourself reaching for a single serving of something healthy,
instead of wolfing down a bag or a box of junk,
that's because of what you are learning NOW.
And even when you do slip...at least you are aware of the slip.
So even if this journey seems to take longer than expected....
You've come a long way Baby.

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.” ~M. Scott Peck
