Slow and Steady

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

I have been a member of Spark People for quite some time now, but I just began to take it seriously a couple of weeks ago. Over the course of my first week, I lost nearly 6lbs. Then over the course of my second week, and after an off weekend, I gained nearly 3lbs back. I usually get frustrated when that happens, but this time I didn't. I just got back on track. I realize that slow and steady wins the race, well the race against obesity. I am still amost 3lbs lighter than I was two weeks ago. That may not be much to some, but to me, a loss is a loss. I'll take it.

    Thanks for the responses. Sometimes trying to lose weight is mentally draining. Lifestyle changes takes some getting used to. I am just not going to let the challenges get me down this time around.

    I say that often when I lead my Spark LIVE! class. Even .2 is a good thing because a loss is a loss. Great attitude. Keep sparking!

    Yay for you! You're right, slow and steady does win the race. You're exercising your patience also, which is a good thing!
