Motivational Quote - Weight gain doesn't happen overnight. Neither does weight loss.

SparkPeople's Comments

Just like gaining weight took time, losing weight will also take time. Set realistic weight-loss goals, be patient with yourself and celebrate every small victory you have along the way.

Such a hard concept for me to grasp but I'm working on it not letting the scale be in control

This is a good reminder.....I only have a small amount of weight I'm trying to lose, but sometimes it feels just as daunting as if it were ten times as much because it doesn't want to budge! I let how hard it is discourage me and I usually give up...BUT NOT THIS TIME!

This is the one of the biggest lessons I have to learn. Getting a handle on it will help me come up with a plan for weight loss I can live with long term...

I watched the pounds creep on and I felt helpless. Then SparkPeople came along and I slowly and anxiously watched the pounds drift away. I'm not a patient person and I was so frustrated at how slowly I was losing weight. My husband bought me the Nustep machine and I was on that thing constantly. That's when I noticed the pounds coming off quickly. Exercise is the key. I started changing the Spark diet a little and let me tell you, I was at goal in no time. A little exaggeration there, but you get my meaning.

Most of us know this but we don't have the patience to wait for it to happen. My husband was my Savior so to speak. He helped me when I was ready to throw in the towel many times. He'd sit down with me and we'd talk and one day something clicked in this senior brain of mine and I found Spark and you know the rest.

This statement is certainly true! It has finally sunk in that it will take commitment and
motivation to see me to a healthier and less heavy me.
