Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

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.

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.

Absolutely and that is why I will not sign on to do any of the "quick fix" programs out here!

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.

This quote aims straight for the heart. It really is an eye opener. Love it.

I love this quote, but just wish it wasn't true. I wish I could just lose weight fast. I know it won't happen and will keep trying to lose the weight for myself first.

WOW I was so discouraged yesterday. My husband told me this and he was so right. Saving this one. Heck putting it on my conputer wallpaper to remind me. This is a process! I will succeed!!!

This is really important, and something I struggle to remind myself everyday.
