Slowly but surely…

This weight is coming off! I am down another two pounds this week which means I am 3 pounds away from being 60 pounds lighter since I started at the gym. What an amazing feeling! When I weighed this morning at first I was like, “only two pounds?!?” because of how much work it took to get rid of those two pounds but then I have to remember that I lost two pounds! I didn’t gain, I didn’t stay the same, I lost! And in this case, I love losing. I am now at 427 and even though that is a big number, it’s not the 500 plus I was last year. I am moving in the right direction. Moving being the key word. I am moving all the time and it’s paying off.

Keep in mind, there isn’t anything extraordinary about what I’m doing. I’m not drinking a magic potion, I’m not better than the next person, basically I’m just a regular person that wants to lose weight more than anything. That is my motivation (I guess.) to keep showing up. To keep pushing forward. To ignore the aches and sore muscles. You have it too. You just have to find it. You have to want it more than you don’t want it. It’s definitely hard and there are days when I haven’t felt like what I’m doing is worth it, but I read something today that was great. It was this:

“Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, all the fears you have overcome.”

So remember that when you think you can’t do it or you’ve tweaked your wrist (AGAIN!) and it adds a little something to your workouts. You CAN do it. Slowly but surely! Have an awesome day and be blessed.

  1. Every journey of a million miles, must always start with your first step. We, all the family members, friends and everyone who LOVES you, support and stand with you in your journey.

    That means, behind you, to kick your butt when you want to stop and need a push to move forward.

    Beside you to let you know that we all love and admire you and want you to know that this means more to you than anything and therefore to us as well.

    In front of you to help pave the way from all the haters to have nothing to say that is worth listening to.

    So carry on OUR Sara, because your journey is our journey. And I can’t wait for the next chapter!!

    Definitely Love You Long-Long time!!

    John and Warren
