You decide whether you want to move forward or backward. Also more quotes.

Wednesday, February 06, 2019



You decide whether you want to move forward or backward. Also more quotes.

Review written goals and update if necessary. It's about progress, not perfection. Slow and steady wins the race. When all else fails, persistence prevails. I can do this.

I know some people don't 'use' quotes, but they are an essential part of my daily plan. I keep one or more in mind for time when motivation lags.

"Speed doesn’t matter. Forward is forward. One tiny step at a time, even when it appears that nothing is happening, something is always taking place. I believe in my journey."-Jane Beach

Setbacks are only temporary delays. You decide whether you want to move forward or backward. You get to choose with the very next meal or snack.

I'm now down 61 pounds with ONLY 179 pounds to go to reach my goal. I'm feeling pretty good about that. I'll still be on this road for a while, but that's okay. It is a permanent lifestyle and I have changed.

How can I say ONLY 179 pounds to go? Because it's so much better than having 240 pounds to remove!!! I can do this. My BMI is now 59.7 it's below 60: Bravo for me! AND I'm 5 pounds away from breaking free of the 400 pound mark on the scale.

I hope to reach my goal by my birthday November 8, 2021 which is only 1006 days away. That gives me several months 'leeway' in case I hit another long plateau like the one I just broke.

We are the architects of our own dreams. Choose your goal wisely and then give it substance through taking daily actions and making right choices.



I hope you had a terrific Tuesday. Now for the inspirational/motivational quotes. I use one daily as my Status Changes here on SparkPeople. I'll do whatever it takes to reach my goal because I am determined and committed.
