Reflection on Patience

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

As I've traveled this road toward healthier living, I've also had an opportunity to reflect on patience. We are so used to immediate gratifacation, that it's a challenge to adopt the "slowest loser" attitude when it comes to weight loss. But, if this lifestyle change is going to really take hold and last, it's going to take a long time.

Life's road isn't smooth, and I've encountered several pot holes, cracks, and gravel pits over the last 9 months. I've made it over, around, or through each of them. While I've not been losing weight for the last two months, I've not given up my effort toward a healthy lifestyle. Sure, I'm eating like a pig, but I'm still working out! I'll get there. Good things come to those who persevere.

While the timing of life's mishaps hasn't been great, what an awesome opportunity I've been given to develop patience! Gotta love that positive Spark attitude; always look on the bright side of things! ;)

    So beautifully said! And so smart to give yourself a break, while still working on your fitness regardless! I am taking the focus off the weight loss and working on my behavior instead. Thank you for always being such a sweet, caring and supportive friend. emoticon emoticon
