" Determination"

" It's the constant and determined effort that breaks down all resistance and sweeps away all obstacles"

Never give up, no matter what!

Have you even wondered what is determination?.. I have learned in this past year that determination is the ability to continue to try to persist and to press on!. As of today I have lost 152.8 pounds and theresn't any secrets or a magical diet for me it has been simply... DETERMINATION. With determination along with it comes self discipline and knowing what to eat ,what not to eat and when to eat and how much we should eat. I believe that determination comes easy once you understand the principles behind healthy eating. It eventually becomes a lifestyle.
I am sure most of you have seen   Wile E. Coyote in pursuit of his goal that is to catch the Roadrunner... We can all be like Wile E. Coyote if we choose to. The Coyote has determination, persistence and patience. I have learned in this weight loss journey that  DETERMINATION, PERSISTENCE AND PATIENCE are key elements to lose weight.
Don't forget, we must have determination, persistence and patience

"Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody"."
