A different type of success

Sunday, June 08, 2008

One might say I've been in a rut. My weight loss has slow. But ironically I am not deflated or discouraged or even mad. Why? Because I have been exercising every day. Yes I just said...I AM EXERCISING EVERY DAY...and I haven't disintegrated.

I am even enjoying the activity. In the past I have quit because at the first signs of failure...I figured it isn't going to work so I might as well not try.

Now I trust that counting the calories and working out is making my body WAY more healthier than it was before. And hanging out here on Spark has provided me a circle of folks like me. You can chose to win the battles but isn't it better to win the war emoticon

    Just keep concentrating on the healthy journey rather than the side effects(weight loss). Don't look at this as a rut rather see it as a plateau from which you can see the next level of your lifestyle change!

    emoticon for the reminder that it's more than just a battle with each pound, but a long road to a long, healthy life!

    Penny what you said is absolutely on the money. Winning the war is more important than the battle. We've all been here, and it helps to hear these things from time to time. And, the joy does come from knowing that you're doing all you know to do to get to the place you're trying to go. How true!
