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!!!

Thank you for all the encouragement. Unfortunately I haven't been able to accomplish the tasks. I got sick and haven't done anything yet. As soon as I feel better I will do them. Thanks again. emoticon

Thank you for giving me that great reminder not to compare myself to others. My status of being discouraged was really all about comparing, and I do the same when it comes to my weight loss journey. I'm struggling to be committed to my health. In many ways I guess! My body and mind and heart need me to be faithful to me and get on with the business of taking care of myself!

I can now translate cold milk To more than one language. Warm goats milk for breakfast was a shock in my teenage years
