Slip ups don't define me

Saturday, September 06, 2014

I have gained about 8 lbs. over the past few weeks. The walks are not as regular and the nutrition is not on par. This does not mean I am a failure, it does not mean I will never reach the goal I have for myself. I have not lost my desire to make the changes in my life I am working to make happen. I have not stopped being an example to my children that it is never to late to better your life.

I will get off path once in awhile and have to refocus and double back and head down the right path again. Sometimes wrong turns can lead to learning even more about yourself. Where your strong and where you need to do more work. This is about becoming the person I want to be and that takes time. No I will not be climbing rock walls tomorrow, or ropes courses in the next week but I will get there.

A lifetime of bad habits and what is comfortable does not change quickly. Patience, forgiveness and persistence. This is my new mantra for moving forward at this point in this journey. Looking forward to the next set of challenges, rewards, and obstacles to overcome on the way to my goal.

    Persistence not Perfection. Nobody's perfect. So we stumble, we fall and we get up brush ourselves off and get right back on program. Exactly right.

    "You are only a failure if you stop trying." As long as we try, we will not fail.

    Good luck as you continue your WL journey. emoticon
