This quote that Marie posted on her blog today really spoke to me so I just had to steal it for my blog. I love all the quotes she posts on Tuesdays, they always hit the mark for me. This one is particular makes me feel better while my weight loss is painfully slow.
I have a nasty habit of comparing my weight loss with other (more successful) lap banders. Many of whom have lost more in one year than I have lost in the entire 21 months I have had the lap band. They are superstars and inspire me every day to keep trying.
I only have about 13 kilos to lose until I get to my goal weight and I have to remember that it's OK if I only lose 1 kilo a month, as long as I am moving in the right direction. I remember when I had 65 kilos to lose, so the last 13 kilos are nothing. There is no race to get to the finish line, I just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other and I'll get there. God I am so tired though, I can't wait to have a rest when this is all over.
