#228: Do You Stride Boldly Toward Success?

Friday, February 12, 2010

How do you approach your journey to weight loss and better health?

Do you tiptoe cautiously around the established successful SP program, dipping a toe in the healthy eating pool here and another toe in the exercise pool there, afraid of committing yourself?

That approach will not bring you success.

We must stride boldly forward, armed with the armor of knowledge and commitment. We must not be timid. We must strive to be forceful in our dedication, our perseverance and our commitment.

Simply "trying" the program will not be enough. We must tightly embrace the principles that have brought success to thousands of others before us.

No, do not be timid. Don't do the ballet dance on tiptoes. Rush forward with steely resolve. Jump into your program with both feet. Submit every molecule of your being into becoming a new person.

You can do this. It's not that difficult. But it does require time and energy. It requires intestinal fortitude, grit and resolve. Such a challenge is not for the weak-willed.

Are you ready for such a commitment?

Will you tiptoe around success or will you stride boldly toward it and grasp it for your own?

    I am ready to get serious. I have a stiff heart muscle - a rare disorder and I think the only way I am going to Win is to work smarter -not harder. I have to get off this Merry-Go-Round of over doing myself then gaining weight from fluid retention , being too short of breath to even do my housework .....everything caving in on me then getting really discouraged. My blood pressure has been on the rise for a long time....fluid retention makes it worse so my BP goes up for days after I have a work out. My BP has been staying in the 200's top number and over 100 on the bottom. I have a new Doctor now who says he is good at getting blood pressure down so I am feeling optimistic I will be able to tolerate exercise better when he takes me off my exercise restrictions I am on at the moment. He wanted to put me in the hospital, but agreed to let me go home if I come in every 4 days till my medical problems is under control. I have been resting and taking my new meds a few days now and my BP was 158/84 today....it has not been that good in a long time. I am starting to feel better, I can think clearer. Woo Hoo!
