How many times does it take to start again until you reach success?

Tuesday, March 23, 2021



QUESTION: How many times does it take to start again until you reach success?
ANSWER: AS MANY TIMES AS IT TAKES!

Today, I weighed and measured my body. The numbers were much bigger than I thought they would be. BUT, I can do something about reducing the weight and measurements of my physical body. It will take time, energy and focus using the tools to reach my goals and then maintain them.

Now is the time. Every day is now. I am realistic. Small changes over time result in BIG CHANGES. If I anticipate success every day, week, month and year - I will move closer to my ideal body and reach my weight reduction goal by Labor Day 2022.

I define what success means for me. I live up to my own expectations. When my expectations are unrealistic, I adjust and redefine success.

Today is day 1 out 532 days until goal date of September 5, 2022 (Labor Day). Today was a successful day where I did the following: I weighed and measured. I updated my profile page. I did my qigong program. I jumped on my rebounder and did the best I could. I took a long walk. I drank water. I tracked my water, nutrition and exercise. I span the SparkPoints wheel.

How many times does it take to start again until you reach success? As many times as it takes.

    Thanks for this post. It is easy to feel like a failure every time I have to go back to the starting line. Started again on April 4th. So far doing good. Your post is encouraging to know that others have the same issues,
