Fall seven times, get up eight...

Well, I've lost 50 pounds, but have gain a couple back. I'm back to tracking on WeightWatchers and just signed up for the premium membership here. I've loved SparkPeople for years and think the price is very reasonable. So anyway, The plateau may have broken... hallelujah! I was reading the "65 Motivational Mantras" and found one I really like: "Today, I will exercise". There's a magnet on my desk given to me by a friend. It reads, "Proceed as if success is inevitable". Even Master Teacher Jesus taught that.

One day at a time.. sometimes one breath at a time, I will continue towards my goal.
