A pound is a pound is a pound
Monday, August 29, 2016
I saw this picture and thought to myself, a pound is a pound is a pound.
I know that it is referring to how fast you travel the mile, but I couldn't help but relate it to my weight loss journey. I am older and don't lose the weight as fast as I did at a younger, much younger age. It definitely takes me longer to lose the pound now. I cannot let how long it takes me to lose the pound discourage me.
I have been participating in the 5% Challenges and see all the members of the team who successfully drop 5% of their weight and I long to be in that group. But it's okay. I lost weight and I want to celebrate that. I lost almost 13 pounds. I was only about a 1 1/2 pounds from my 5% goal. While the 5% Challenge is on hiatus between challenges, I will continue to work on losing those last couple of pounds so I can reach my goal.
So, others reach their goals faster than I do. I will not give up. I will continue slow and steady as the tortoise and eventually win the race.
