My new motivational quote

"Success is not a's a staircase!"-Dottie Walters

Today I read this quote and realized it is so incredibly true when it comes to weight loss. The decision to lose weight and be healthier is the door, but just because you walk through that door, it doesn't mean that you have seen success. By making the decision and openning the door, you have found the first step to that success, but there is a big staircase ahead of you and along the way, sometimes you will fall a few steps down and may even fall through the step all together, but with each step it takes you closer to that success.

I have decided this will be how I'm going to view my weight loss and I'm going to literally draw a staircase and post it somewhere in my home. Each step will represent a certain goal and along the way, certain goals will contain rewards. I'm very excited about this new way to visually see my goals and successes.

Below is my motivational collage I put on the back of my door. Symbolic don't you think? The centerpoint is my staircase of weight loss goals and rewards and around it is other motivational quotes I like. I plan on posted a new picture for every 10 pounds lost so I can visually see my success.
