What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals

The title is by Zig Ziglar, and here's part of an interesting blog from Future Derm's blog of October 5, found at www.futurederm.com/2011/
The article is real motivating - here's a couple snapshots of info from it, but you really should go to the site and read it - it's not long!
“It’s not about what you do everyday,” she said. “It’s about what you do teaches you.”
"There’s a time to grin and bear it. Sometimes it builds character. Yet if you are letting a goal or experience break you instead of build you, it’s time to find a new goal."
When reading this blog, it made me think of our weight loss journey. What are you learning from it? Is it tough? So tough that you want to give it up, not try any more? What if you hung in there? Do you think you might surprise yourself, and find that you CAN do it, after all?
Learning to do something isn't easy, even if it's learning how to pay more attention to what you put in your mouth. No one said it would be. But ask anyone who did stay with it, and accomplished their goal. Do they say "I still wish I had stopped - it was sooo hard!" ? Or do they say "I'm so glad I stuck with it - it was sooo worth it!" ?
What do you want to say?
