The difference between interest & commitment...

Thursday, April 17, 2008

I am proud of myself... this is the longest I've remained committed to a healthier lifestyle. I did great my first 3 months, losing 33 lbs before my daughter's wedding. However, I slid back into my work-a-holic routine and became too busy to fit in exercise.

For me, no exercise means little-to-no weight loss... and I’ve hovered between 247 & 249 waaaay too long now and need to step up my commitment. So...
THIS IS WHAT I AM REMINDING MYSELF THIS WEEK:

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

I CAN DO THIS!!! I AM STRONG!!! I CAN CHANGE MY LIFE FOR THE BETTER!

Hugs! =0) Camille

    I'm gonna get more committed to my exercise too Camille! I'm gonna concentrate on getting my heart rate up to 135 and keep it there for thirty minutes at a time! I'm gonna reward myself for doing so too! So There!
