One day it will stick!

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

I have been on (and off) SP for a year now. This morning I realized that I am back to exactly where I was a year ago. But really it's only my weight that is the same...the rest of me has changed. Now I drink water and prefer it over pop. Now I know how good it feels to exercise regularly and to eat right. And last but not least...a year later I know I am worth the fight, and I know I won't give up. I know that if I keep trying, if I keep striving, if I keep coming back, one day it will stick!

    I am right there with you, Jessica! I have been here for a little over a year. My wight is very close to what it was a year ago, but my attitude, confidence, and healthy habits have all changed for the better. I know that if I keep it up, I will continue to improve in so many ways. We can do it!

    It sounds like some changes have already stuck for you! It's a long road, but it's completely worth it and YOU are worth it. One day at a time and baby steps.

    Thanks for your lovely post on my blog. You're right, we need to acknowledge our strides, no matter how small and keep moving forward. We'll get there. emoticon

    You can't fail if you don't quit! And you are right, you are much better off with your new habits than you were a year ago.

    That's the best thing you can do for yourself is to NOT QUIT!! Now you have all the tools and you have begun doing the right things so stay with it.... one step at a time, set small goals. You have already made the change from soda to water, now choose another goal and work on that. emoticon
