Actions speak louder than words.

Don't worry if you falter now and then, just be sure to try again. A little bit of healthy guilt can work wonders.

Smile and make somene's day.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

YAY!!!!! I'm celebrating my smaller size pants by going to the gym to ride the bike with a new magazine, I'll pick up on the way....I haven't lost a pound this month...but my clothes were getting baggy.....

I was having a stressful day yesterday(still don't have my toddlers' a pre-school solution, until end of September...so I ate 2 cups of low fat popcorn over my calories/had to rebel in anger, but not too much, b/c then my mood would dive lower...so, I decided to really use my moment of negativity & anger & try on a smaller size pants....

I boxed my clothes up size by size as I was gaining weight in pregnancy, so I wouldn't have to look at them in my closet, when I was trying to lose the weight....I thought I'd gain about 70-80 pounds with a twin pregnancy; I sure didn't see the XXL hospital gown in my future...see? another reason not to waste time worrying: I totally never would have imagined THAT in my future, anyway,....

Sure, enuff, they fit...I'm in 14's, my goal is to get to 10....I couldn't believe it--didn't in fact, took out 2 more pairs & they fit too----I did a crazy dance in sheer joy...my hubby seemed to enjoy the show/haha.....

It's nice when something nice happens in the middle of frustration...like water in the desert...I've been doing squats at the gym with 240 pounds....before my pregnancy, almost 3 years ago, I got pregnant with twins...at that time I did squats with 150 pounds....after lying in a bed for over 6 months(read my blog called : babysteps really add up, for details) & going from 160 pounds to 300+ pounds in under a year, my muscles were so weakened....but over the course of almost two years....

I gained massive strength in my legs b/c I had to, in order to lift my own weight off the floor, & as a perk to all that frustration, pain, & weakness...I've gained incredible strength....so I am going to the gym to maintain it for life...I want to be like that 80 year old water ski lady on the V8 ads....

My wrist is still too weak to lift weights....but lifting weights on my legs, helps me stay positive & remember this strength came from the fact I could not use my hands to push up off the cushion I sat on on the floor....

This reminds me to remind you...keep going, when we lose 1 ability, others get stronger, use what you have.....keep moving forward & encouraging others, we can all do amazing things, even if at times it feels like we are moving at snail's pace....snails get where they are going, they probably enjoy the scenery along the way too...

I can't believe it, smaller pants, don't give up b/c you had a bad day/week/year....if I can even get to this level from where I started....you can accomplish way more than you think....way more...
