Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - Persistence is far more important than perfection.

SparkPeople's Comments

On your path to healthy living, you'll have good days, bad days, and days that are "just OK." Don't go into your lifestyle changes with the mindset that you have to be perfect all the time, because you don't! Instead, focus on taking baby steps that will help you reach your goals.

Persistance paid off for me. After struggleing it seems like forever, this quote crossed my path and now I'm at goal weight.

Persistence really pays off, just got to keep moving and even if I stop I will begin again!

Perfection may not be possible, but that doesn't mean I should give up trying. Persistance has helped me loose 39 pounds so far. Going to keep trying.

Good thing because I am definitely not perfect!

I have been working out since Jan 15 2014 and I am down 30 lbs. and would like to drop the last 20 pounds. I do cross fitness three nights per week. I have a personal core and weight trainer 3 days a week. Ride Bike / Walk a few miles and am eating better than ever. But I am concerned on the last 20.

I am better off with 7 10-minute walks than on 70-minute walk, as I will get cranky if I start to have sore muscles. But 10 minutes gets my circulation going and always adds a smile to my day!

Love this! I've believed it for a long time, but rather than 'slow and steady wins the race', I love these words.

this one is important to me as I am a perfectionist and before spark people, if I could not do it perfectly and in full, I just did not do it. now I am beginning to know that if I try my best, it is good enough.
