A setback is only a setup for a comeback.

I lost 112.50 lbs. to reach my goal about 6 years ago and have maintained ever since. Believe me, maintaining a weight loss is much tougher than losing it in the first place! I have lost & gained & lost and gained & lost over 100 lbs. several times.

This time is different. I am no longer going to give up even when I have a gain or two. I will stick to this journey for the rest of my life! There is just no other choice - giving up is just NOT AN OPTION!!!

The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment, it is not in luck or chance, it the desire within you to finish what you started unknown
Have a great week community team mates old and new we can do this supporting each other each day
