Saturday, February 28, 2009

I have learned it takes patience and action to achieve ones goals.
In pursuit of goals enables us to take on a challenge, stick to it, and come
out an achiever......................

She stood in front of the mirror for the first time in a long time.
She lost ten pounds, but it didn't show.
Sighing she says outloud, "when will it show.?"
"when will people notice the weight I struggled
to lose."

Once a week she would weigh herself.
A pound here and their showed on the
scale she viewed.
She ate her vegetables, salads, and
fruits.
She was on a quest to look her best.

A month passed, she looked in the
mirror again.
She lost five pounds and her clothes
were getting big.
"Look at me now," to the mirror she said.

She didn't give up, though she wanted to.
She thought of how great she would look,
it was worth going through.
She was shedding her pounds, ate
neutritional food.
She stood in front of the mirrow saying,
"wow look at you."

A year went by, she went shopping.
To reward herself with some new clothes.
She ran into a friend she hadn't seen in
a long time.
Her friend exclaimed, "wow you look great
how do you do it.?"

With a smile on her face she replied.
"I joined SparkPeople. "
They talked for what seemed forever.
Her friend remarked, "wow you were
cleaver."

When they parted there ways, saying
goodbyes.
A warm hug saying, "we will meet
again."
She took a deep breath, saying to
herself, "look at me now, I have
accomplished my quest.
I am standing here, looking my
best."
