Slow & Steady Wins the Race
Lately with everything that I do, I don't feel like I get as much accomplished as I had either planned or thought that I could. We moved into our house on the 4th of July last year, and as we start to near the 1 year mark of living here, I can't help but feel like there is still so much that I want to do. Sometimes I feel like what I have accomplished pales in comparison with what I WANT to accomplish. Then I remind myself that I lived in my last house 6 years and the one before that for 8 years, so of course they were how I wanted them (or close to it).
I've been feeling that way about my weight loss too! I lost another 1.2 lbs for a total of 24.8, and as much as that makes me happy, I feel like it's also going so slow. I'm trying to give myself a reality check today by repeating to myself, "slow and steady wins the race"! I'm not as young as I use to be when I could shed the weight quickly, but then again I never kept it off either. It's taken me quite some time to gain this much and as much as it makes me want to puke a little in my mouth to hear the good 'ol bit of wisdom...you can't lose it over night...I will accept it! Why? Because this time I want to WIN the race.
