Winning is Not Quitting

August 2010~ It was VERY hard to weigh myself or to even get motivated this first year of my "stealth visiting" Spark People. It was painful to admit to all my past failures of yo-yo dieting and being up 30 + pounds....again.

October 2011~ Fortunately, something finally clicked for me and I joined in some of the activities and challenges SP offered to help me make weight loss a reality.

March 2014~Back to pre-holiday weight. I know that I will always be a work in progress but I am close and 2014 is my year to make and maintain goal!

No more diets for me. Instead I try to do my best everyday to live a healthy and fit lifestyle. No More beating myself up and NO more quitting.

I have a fantastic, long time SP accountability buddy who gave me one of my favorite sayings: It's time to"STOP THE MADNESS!"

"Fall down 7 times, get up 8" Japanese proverb

"Whatever you want in life, start today.
Not tomorrow - today.
Let it be a small beginning - a tiny beginning.
Your happiness depends on starting today - every day."

I love the beach towel goodie! Have no doubt that I am struggling, yet reading this 100 days book, tracking food, drinking water ....feels like positive steps forward. It is fun to have others join us on our 100 journey!

“Not to give up under any circumstances should be the motto of our life: we shall try again and again, and we are bound to succeed. There will be obstacles, but we have to defy them. So do not give up, do not give up!
Continue, continue! The goal is ahead of you. If you do not give up, you are bound to reach your destined goal.”
-Sri Chinmoy
