Advice from the 13th century

We are so often told to take baby steps but we don't know what that means. We don't even know where to start. I got inspiration from St Francis of Assisi: Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you will be doing the impossible.

Weigh-in ... Especially when you don't want to

The scale is *not* your enemy nor something to be feared. It is a tool. Use it to help you do the work of weight loss.

Think about this: do you fear the thermometer? No! You use it to help you dress for outside. It's a tool that gives you a useful number.

Ditto the scale. I know I packed it in this Holiday. I knew the scale would give me a large number. Now I know wha tto do next to reach my goals.

No one scolded me. I did not sustain an injury.

Now, back to work.

Surround yourself with greatness

A woman told me, "You'll never lose all that weight. It's just too much to expect. I know I've tried and nothing works."

I went away feeling like I was wasting my time.

Then I found this from Mark Twain -- "Stay away from those who would belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too will become great."

Keep the petty people at arms length and surround yourself with greatness!

What worked for me

Start walking. The trick to healthy walking is not doing it today. The real trick is doing it tomorrow and the next day. We aren't talking about a stroll around the mall. Get out there and stride!
