Success Is Failure Turned Inside Out

Sooo sorry I haven't blogged in DAYS!! Hope everyone is doing well :)

Good news! (A little late but still news!) - I reached my 50lbs goal! Actually exceeded it.. weighed in at 204.6 on Sunday which is 51 pounds down from where I started. Now just 49lbs to go!

I have been so so busy with work, school, mommy life, working out, training for this run, the list goes on! But I wouldn't have it any other way.. I love this life I'm living.

I have a bazillion thoughts though that I want to blog about that I have been putting in my mind's filing cabinet the last couple days so I hope to get to them over the next few days.. don't want to overwhelm in one blog!

This blog is short and sweet though because I am exhausted! I will definitely catch up with you guys this weekend, I promise! I just wanted to let you know that I didn't forget about my blog!

Until then, keep up the great work! Never give up! Write down your goals, tell people your goals, and hold yourself accountable - you will reach the top!

*My honey said something so nice to me the other day that I replay in my mind over and over.. he said "You WILL be successful. I will be a part a part of your success. Our daughter will be a part of your success. Let's do it.. write down your goals and you will achieve them!" .. he seriously has been my ROCK. They say one day you meet that person that you love like you have never loved before because they love you and support you in ways you never knew possible.. I don't know how but I got that lucky! :)

I pray that everyone going through this weight loss journey, as well as the journey that we call LIFE, has someone whether it is a parent, a spouse, friend, aunt, uncle, brother, sister etc... that supports them 150%! I think it's crucial in life to have that one person that is always in your corner.. to have one is awesome. To have a whole team is a serious blessing!!!'

I'll leave you with one of my favorite poems::

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
Edgar A. Guest

Talk to you guys soon!
