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).

Running raceI'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 can't lose it over night...I will accept it!  Why?  Because this time I want to WIN the race.

    A loss is always better than the dreaded plateau or even worse, a gain.
