- It just takes one *right* turn
So, I was searching for a photo that would be appropriate for my title “Preparing for Success” and came across the image you see here. This image resonated with me because it is truly *so* simple to choose either success or failure, based on one turn in your life.
One *right* turn is truly all it takes to make a huge difference in your life. Whether or not weight is your personal issue does not really matter. All success takes determination and a “one-step-at-a-time” mentality. Sure, you are bound to encounter obstacles, detours, and seemingly insurmountable complications, but determination and perseverance can see you through. Just take that *right* turn when faced with something challenging. Your goal is waiting at the end…all you have to do is show up!
That being said, I’m stepping off of my soapbox now, and I’ll be continuing with my regularly scheduled post.
My next published goal is coming closer (275 pounds), and I am getting excited. Since I know that will just fly by me I mentioned I should be setting up some future goals and rewards now. Here they are:
Current goal: 275 pounds (37 pounds lost) = this purse
250 pounds (62 pounds lost) = pretties from this lady
235 pounds (77 pounds lost) = a ring from this lady
I’m sure you can see a trend…I *love* Etsy! I love how unique everything is…and that purchasing from someone is just that, purchasing from *someONE*. These are real people making a living doing what they love to do (and are quite good at, if I can say so). I like the idea of supporting someone else trying to reach their goals.
Life is funny. Sitting in front of my computer even three months ago I would not have thought I would be 30+ pounds lighter today. I honestly was in a place where I thought I would just be fat forever. I was starting to resign myself to a “fat life” just a few short months ago. Today I could not be happier, and I cannot wait to see where I am in three more months.
Is your week off to a good start? If not, there is still time to get moving toward your goals for the week!
