Day 137: 194

Determination : the act of coming to a decision or of fixing or settling a purpose

What is the secret to weight loss?? Determination. It is a day to day battle. You don't just wake up one day and have the perfect body. You wake up every morning and make the decision... am I going to do this? Some days you may not be physically or mentally ready to fight.. but you do it anyway. Because this is what you have to do to lose weight, to live longer, to be happy. All you need to lose weight is DETERMINATION.

YES! Determination is it. I bought a stone with a quote on it from a Successories store for DH years ago with the quote "Persistance prevails when all else fails." For him it was for work, but for us, it totally applies to this fat busting we're doing. Keep on it--no matter what.
