"Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another." -Walter Elliot

I love this quote because it reminds me to take one day of weight loss at a time. There's no reason I should be looking months and years into the future. I need to focus on today. How can I better myself today to improve my chances to reach my ultimate goal? Think of each day as a mini-race. Make it through today and we'll take on tomorrow when it comes.

    I love both the quote and your comment. How true you are....I need to implement thinking about what I can do today instead of always looking into the future. Thanks for sharing this.
