My Weight Loss Journey: Goals

Justify Full
just me being silly

“Courage doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
‘I will try again tomorrow’.”
~Mary Anne Radmacher

In looking for quotes about weight loss, I found the above quote. I have heard this quote a few times this year, and I think it rings true. More importantly, you may remember at the beginning of the year, I chose the word Courage for my Word of the Year (WOTY).

When it comes to weight loss goals, I have always kind of generalized my goals. "I want to lose weight". I think this came from fear of disappointment.

As a sufferer of chronic pain, I have often quit any attempts to exercise and get into shape. This year, I have my WOTY urging me along. An even though my body aches, I haven't quit.

I met my first major weight loss goal in April, in part due to my courage to keep trying. This may be a lesson I've learned too late, unfortunately, but its one I plan to continue.

Don't let your fears prevent you from taking that first step. And the many that will follow.

Love the photo of you!! Good to see a smile on your face and some goofiness! I think that is a wonderful quote and that, for most people, is really the definition of courage ...making the decision every day to keep on keeping on. Keep up the good work!
