is a virtue, cultivate it if you can....

if you are from my side of the family you can certainly finish off that famous quote of my mother's.

So in my head I understand that weight loss and health are not events but processes and 1-2 pounds of weight loss per week is healthy etc etc etc.


(if you buy 3 complatos, iss only three dollars)

In my little heart I get discouraged when I haven't lost 1-2 pounds OVERNIGHT.

I keep thinking that my hours and hours of exercise surely must mean, well, SOMETHING tangible. Yeah, tangible heavy muscle and water retention seems to be where I'm at. Oh well. Patience. Patience. PATIENCE.

So my reminder for myself is that surely the efforts to change and do better will add up over time, if I just DON'T. GIVE. UP.! There is my pep talk to myself.

So, where are you all at? What are your ups and downs, successes and struggles?

Just keep at it.


  1. I am already losing steam. I need motivation to eat well.

  2. I hear ya! What should we do? I almost need a really rigid menu so I don't have any room to push the boundaries. But try that with little kids! Ha.

    You did so amazing the first four days! WOW, Donna. You can totally do it, just one day at a time, and think about where you'll be the end of March!

    Ahhh.... This isn't easy, is it.

    This may sound crazy, but sometimes I have to take a day to fast to break my bad habit cycle.

    Let me know what works for you (or what doesn't). We're in this together!
