Last year about this time BMW Credit sent me a letter. It said that I had six more months of my lease and then the Zipster would have to go back to the dealer.

Actually it said, �You are on your last lap.�

I read the material and thought - where did the last 18 months go? I should have been at goal weight by now! Being in accounting - deadlines are a fact that I live with ongoing.

The last lap.

Working out and running was now part of the regime. Of course it was January 2005 and ice storms had sidelined me to an indoor track at the gym. But I was still pumped! Water consumption - the very first thing I mastered when starting a weight loss program was a habit that needed no adjustment.

The last lap.

When was the last time I used a calorie counter? Went to the site and logged-in...mmmm...been awhile. How much was I really working out? Looked at my X-Challenge...hadn�t made my pledged minutes in several months...mmmm.

It appeared that I had been maintaining...but not losing and of course the scale tells me no lies.

The last lap.

Gee, I have this great roadster - the car of my dreams - I had planned to be at goal in it - to get that one photo of me at my best with no excuses. Time...well, there always seemed to be �tomorrow� or � after the holidays� or when tax time was handled.

The last lap.

Everyday was going to be down on paper ...every single one. Time was running out - I needed to burn up 300 calories more than I ate daily - this meant being SELFISH sometimes - being ALONE many times - always looking at tomorrow and not at the moment. Live in the present, yes, but with my eye on the future.

The last lap.

I learned the body wants to help me if I will just give it a chance. The mind, if the goal is strong enough will pull you through the discomfort if the vision is strong enough...if it means enough.

Viewing that �deadline� in black and white gave me the incentive to make everyday a �get to goal� day - with no time off for bad behavior.
