Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - The reason why people give up is because they focus on how far they have to go instead of how far they've come.

SparkPeople's Comments

It's definitely important to look toward your goals, but it's also good to keep one eye looking back to remind yourself of how far you've come! Remember your accomplishments the next time you have a bad day--you ARE making progress!

This is a major obstacle for me. On day 2 of another try at loosing 120 pounds this will be my Mantra.

I struggle with this.

This was me when I had more than 100 lbs. to lose. I told myself I'd never make it and it was too much work. Then my Husband stepped in and took over and the weight just fell off and in no time it seemed I was at goal weight. Thanks hon.

I'm celebrating how far I've come which is reaching my goal weight. Thanks Spark People.

That was me for a while until I wised up. Much nicer focusing on how far I've come.

This is truly how I think sometimes. I forget to celebrate how far I've come since last year.

I love this and it's so true. I'm trying very hard not to focus on how many I have to lose and be super excited with what I've lost.

Short term goal...one day at a time....5 pounds in a month instead of the 40!

Yes, it is a good thing to look back once in a while to see how far you've come and what you've experienced or conquered to get where you are.

Am continuing to strive toward where I have to go while celebrating how far I have come
Will never give up one day at a time
