Secrets of Success

Be Patient--All Good Things Are Worth Waiting For!



It is true--if it is worth having or doing, it is worth waiting for. We have to plan and organize vacations, weight losses, a healthy lifestyle, summer break...It is important to take your time and do these things well.

More Information:

I used to hate hearing that "you didn't gain the weight overnight, so you can't lose it overnight." It is true, but when you get started to change the way you have been doing things, it seems to take away from your motivation. One to two pounds a week is perfect, and any more can be unhealthy.

  • You are so right. Thnx for the encouragement. I started a fast today, and the 1st day is always the hardest, but reading these motivations has helped alot. I hope you reach all your goals for today. emoticon - by SELFLOVE2010

  • I have found the recent weeks to be particularly difficult. I have been packing for a move at school and summer vacation, planning a family camping trip, organizing my son's graduation party, while trying to work on the house and stick with my SP program to lose weight and focus on fitness. Being patient while none of these things have been completed has been really tricky. School ended yesterday though and it looks as if my moving and packing will get completed today. emoticon - by ENUFF81020
