I meant to get back on here later after I posted and tell you that I have a sticky note on the side of my computer cabinet that I copied from somewhere that says:
"A spectator cannot win the race!"
"As long as you cross the finish line, you'll get the same prize as everyone else, no matter how long it takes!"
I think that applies in a lot of areas, especially in our weight loss journey. Only if we participate in the race, will we ever get to the finish line. Personally, I like to think I'm the tortoise and you know how that story goes! LOL!
