Looking Back...

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again

           Do you ever keep something like a picture to keep you motivated when you get off track? I do. I have this picture of me that is not so flattering if i say so myself. I look bad. I look at it to remind myself that I want to change for the better. I want to be healthier and I would like to look good dammit!! So I keep in handy when I need a boost of energy of why I am doing this. I keep it handy when I want to just give up.
         This past holiday was a little tough. Though I wanted to indulge in everything that was cooked and baked, I held my ground. I kept it to smaller portions and limited myself into eating what i can. If I wanted seconds I would ask myself do I really want it? Wait 5 more minutes and prayed it passed.. and it did. :) How was your thanksgiving holiday? Did you have any obstacles to overcome like I did?
          I have lost another 2 more lbs. this week. A total of 18 lbs. to date. Whoo hoo!! 2 more pounds to go and I will hit my 20 lb. goal. I can't wait.

What are you thankful for in your life?

I am thankful for being alive.I am thankful for having a job that puts food on the table and to be able to  buy things that are a neccessaity and also a home for me and my family to live in. I am also thankful for having a car that takes me from point A to point B. I am thankful that my kids are healthy and alive.
