  • Perfect timing, I have had a rough year, I would say I "hit the wall". But I'm not giving up and am slowing coming back! Great Article, I have sent it to many.

  • thanks- as a runner as well- I totally understand and endorse everything you said- it is so applicable to every aspect of fitness, weight loss and life in general- Valuable life skills to be learned here.

    This is a keeper. I don't need it today, but there will come a time when I'm going to need to read this again more than ever. Pam
  • This is a motivating article! I'm saving it for the times I will feel like giving up, or that I am not accomplishing what I need to do...or just for a pick me up!
  • I feel this article was on target we have to keep on looking straight ahead, we are different people everyday and have to focus on improving ourselves.

    Thanks for this article, and for the great comments. I am struggling right now, but now I'm starting to feel more like I can keep moving forward.
  • This article was right on time. Thanks!!!
  • This article really helped me, thanks!
  • I'm not huge on exercise, but I do it cause I need to. When I get tired and just do NOT want to do any more I say, I can quit whenever I want to ... as long as I keep walking (or biking or whatever)! LOL It's silly but physiologically it works for me :D
  • I use that last trick and it works really well! I hate running, but am trying to get ready to do a 10k marathon, so I'm using the treadmill. I watch the numbers it shows: calories; distance; minutes... Almost without effort, I tell myself I'll keep going at this level until I reach 1 mile, then I notice it's not too far to x number of calories, so I'll move past the first little goal. I keep seeing little hurdles to keep going and it's not nearly so hard and before I know it, I see there's only a few more minutes left before I'm finished my allotted time on the machine and surely I can keep it up until then! And it wasn't so bad after all!! Great article!
  • I hit the wall at mile 19 at the Nike Women's marathon last year and it was about 3 miles before I stopped crying, but I kept pushing and somehow still finished under my goal time! I'm gearing up to start training for my 2nd marathon next month :)
  • This is a GREAT article! I've printed it out so that I can look at it whenever I hit that "wall". Thanks! :o)
  • Everyone who left a comment is exactly right. People will try to hold you back, because they are not doing what they suppose to do to lose the weight. THe true word for it is jealously, but they fell to understand what you had to go through to lose weight, they do not understand how bad you felt, or how ashamed you were of the weight. They do not know your story so they throw daggars at you, but I learnt to take that criticism and rejoice in it, because that means you are doing it and you are looking good while you are doing it, so when that wall comes, we all have expierenced it, but don't let the people who want to see you fail get that enjoyment. Keep it up, you look great.
  • Great motivational article!
