As I'm sitting reading my Weight Watchers Magazine for January/February 2010, I just read a line that so struck me I needed to include it here in my blog for extra motivation for myself this week. (I do feel I'm the only one who reads my blog.)
On pg. 24 when they have an article about a Weight-loss newbie.....the last line that the woman, Patty Macias, says is...."the fact that this is a marathon-not a sprint." WOW! How true. It's not over even when you hit goal. It's a continuation if you want to keep the weight off. I'm a food addict as I've stated before. My problems with foods and eating too much won't just go away because I've lost 150 pounds. I can't expect the last 17 pounds to just melt off no matter how much I'd like them to. I'm in this for the marathon. I assure you though, I WILL get to the goal line and not fall off along the way. If I do, I'll pick myself up and get back into the marathon!
