Endurance is the key for success.

Thursday, May 23, 2013

The health improvement journey is challenging but well worth the effort. Many years I believed the hype that someone with my physical issues would not be successful. My goals were too unrealistic because I expected immediate results and quitting because they were unattainable. However, post heart attack, my doctor asked me a question that has turned my life around. The question? How long did I want to live. He said I'd have to make an 180 degree turn around. What did I do? I made the change and have lost 140lbs. Now I am about 260lbs.

I wrote this blog to encourage all of us to keep fighting, be patient, understand we will stumble, but remember the race is not to the swift or the strong but to those who endures to the end. The weight battle is not easy, but, we can win!! emoticon
