When looking at the big picture, we all know that how we finish is more important than where we start. Many successful people started out in life with the odds against them, & came through winners. They didnít let their starting situation determine their final outcome. Think about itÖthis same philosophy can apply to everything we do.
When working towards goals, forget that you may have started out at a disadvantage, met hurdles or made mistakes along the way. Move past the past! Donít get discouraged. Donít blame your past!
Stop looking back & start looking forward. Then, you will move ahead in leaps & bounds.

My husband refuses to exercise with me. My daughter is obese but refuses to deal with it... I'm losing weight on SP in spite of them. DH has 3 flavours of ice cream on hand, salted cashews, candy... I ask him to keep it out of my sight but sometimes he forgets and I slip up... but darn it all, I'm going to succeed in spite of them, because I matter!205
