"Energy and persistence conquer all things." - Ben Franklin
This week was all about persistence for me. I'm not ready to quit. Nope, no quitters up in here! I nearly let a little cake become a major obstacle. The sugary delight was like an addictive drug that demanded everything and left me wanting more no matter the consequences. It sapped my energy and made me lose sight of what is really important to me at this stage of my life: a healthier me.
By Wednesday I was getting my focus back and was able to put the cake behind me. I made good food choices the rest of the week and I continued to ride my bike, regardless! And you know what? I lost 1.2 lbs this week. I must confess that I did get on the scale earlier in the week and naturally I was up about 2 lbs. In the past this would have been a cue for me to quit. I've quit so many times in the past, obviously or I wouldn't be writing about weight-loss, I'd be writing about keeping weight off! I am looking forward to that day!
I attribute my quick recovery to all the great comments of encouragement and positive vibes that I got from you all and from reading your blogs. Having such great community support is what is helping me keep things in perspective. Thank you for sharing your ups and downs, it's what keeps me moving!
Have a wonderful weekend, and don't forget to keep moving.
