You deserve the very best achievement of which you're capable. The challenges and setbacks and disappointments are there to make you determined enough to get it.

When it absolutely seems like there's no way forward, keep going. There's a way.

If you're not getting the results you expected, see it as an opportunity to experiment with other approaches. You'll likely find something that works even better than you could have imagined.

Eventually you'll look back on all the challenges and be thankful for them. You'll realize that the strength and effectiveness gained in working through those challenges added great value to the whole undertaking.

You won't avoid all the setbacks, but then you really wouldn't want to. For you can choose to take them all in stride and let them make you that much stronger, that much more determined, and that much more successful.

Instead of feeling sorry for yourself, feel inspired about yourself. After all, you had the courage to get started in the first place and you have the determination to keep going no matter what.

-- Ralph Marston

By loving the person you are on the inside, you will find strength to change the outside too. The more you put, in the more you get out, that doesn't just apply to weight loss, but life in general. I have short term goals, long term goals, and lifetime goals, the rewards for these milestones may be materialistic, but the true reward is total happiness, because everything else is just "STUFF"

"To dream anything that you want to dream, That’s the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, That is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your limits, That is the courage to succeed.
~Bernard Edmonds~

It will hurt! It will take time! It will require dedication! It will require willpower! You WILL need to make healthy decisions! It requires sacrifice! You WILL need to push your body to it's max! There will be temptation! But, I promise you, when you reach your goal, it's WORTH IT!

    The flowers and blossoms are filling the air with the smells of Spring. This is the time to start preparing for the Summer. Are you ready to join a Challenge? The Biggest Loser Challenge is looking for members for it’s next Challenge starting the first week of June. The challenge consists of 11 Teams, that participate in 10 weeks of Nutritional and Fitness Challenges. These challenges can be modified to fit individual needs, allowing members of all abilities and dietary needs to participate.

    Here are some of the members comments written on a Survey Monkey poll:

    “It helps me stay focused on my goals. It also keeps things interesting and not boring.”

    “I find that the challenges make me be more cognizant of my food intake, better choices etc. The fitness ones encourage me to try new exercises and to keep doing exercises. I think there is a good possibility I wouldnt do as much if I didnt track it for challenges or tried to do better on challenges”

    “My leaders are all wonderful...they stay in touch with team members and do their best to keep us involved and feeling a part of the team.”

    “They motivate me to eat healthier and to be more active. “

    If you would like to be a member of this challenge you can copy and paste the the link below, or click on my username and leave me a message or click on the BLUE BIGGEST LOSER Icon on my page. Join the team and sign up for the next challenge on the Spring Waitlist thread.
