I spend more and more time worrying about the little things, when I should really look at what I have. Two great kids, who are my biggest motivators to eat better, do more and relax and play games with them. I keep finding myself wondering what I would do without them, and the answer is simple NOTHING! I keep going because my kids keep going.
I also find it easier to play kickball and run the bases a few times a to keep my energy up all the while playing with my kids at the same time

Who said Life was easy or there is an end to struggle? Just as you have to make a lifestyle healthy eating change & adjust to it till it becomes part of everyday life & no longer a "diet" struggle. You also can deal w/ what negative life brings to you by accepting, adjusting to it, riding it out, gaining strength, knowledge & adapting to it's changes till life gets easier again. With time & experience, you get better at emotionally & physically handling things. The struggle doesn't ever end. But
it does get easier. Life becomes smoother. You grow stronger & taller. Then you can run faster for a longer time. Then you gain confidence which leads you to challenge yourself. Then you succeed. It's always a struggle. You just gotta adjust to it & keep moving on! Head up! You can do it!-Simply Pos
