One Pound at a Time!

Over the years, I've found it easy to accomplish goals outside of myself (ie; jobs, school, family), but now its time to FOCUS on me!

My plan is to lose 90-100lbs. When I joined SP, I divided the weight loss into two phases of 50lbs, because I thought it would be too much to envision all at once. But..... after reading sooo many successful weight loss stories on this website, I can now comprehend and imagine losing 100lbs! I'm going to do this...ONE POUND at a TIME!

Below, I am starting a list of success quotes that I have seen on this website. These short quotes have really helped me on my journey to better health:


-Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.

-Discipline is remembering what you want.

-Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort." Franklin Roosevelt

-If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run."
-John Bingham

-If it doesn't CHALLENGE you it doesn't CHANGE you!
-Unknown

- If you are TIRED of starting over, STOP giving up!

-Do or DO NOT, there is no try!
-Jedi Master

-"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."

- George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian

- Fall in love with the "process" and the rest will take care of itself. ~Ernestine Shepherd

Learn from yesterday... live for today... hope for tomorrow... The important thing is not to stop Learning... and to not give up... Keep Going... Go... Go

*~ * ~ *~ * emoticon *~*~*~ *~ emoticon *~*~*~ emoticon

Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear... If we believe that tomorrow will be better... we can bear a hardship today...

*~ * ~ *~ * emoticon *~*~*~ *~ emoticon *~*~*~ emoticon

You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world's problems at once but don't ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.

Let your hopes... not your hurts... shape your future...

Feel a Little Good... awhile eating something you shouldn't...
Feel A lot Bad Later... with eating something you shouldn't...

Feel a Little Bad... before or during work out...
Feel a lot Good Later... After working out...

Why not focus on what youíre doing right instead? If you take a step back, learn from it and take two steps forward...

Persistence is key. Accept the fact that you might not make it ~on the first try. In a recent study, only 40% of people who successfully followed New Year's resolutions did it on the first try; 17% of resolution achievers took six or more tries before they got it right Ė but they did get it right...

DO leave room for failure. DONíT expect perfection....

The world wasn't formed in a day, and neither were we. Set small goals and build upon them....

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon

To enjoy the glow of good health, you must exercise...

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon

I think exercise tests us in so many ways, our skills, our hearts, our ability to bounce back after setbacks. This is the inner beauty of sports and competition, and it can serve us all well as adult athletes...

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~* emoticon

No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel and it may seem hard to get to it but you can do it and just keep working towards it and you'll find the positive side of things...
