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.

    I definately agree that slow and steady is the way to go, although for me it can be frustrating

    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!
