I've been reading some of my old blogs trying to get my motivation stoked. I'm reposting this one more for me because I think this was my turning point and I need to be reminded.

There is no magic pill you can take that will make the weight come off. You create you own magic by the food choices you make.
There is no magic exercise equipment that you can buy and the weight will magically come off. You create the magic by consistently using the equipment.
There is no magic mirror that will make you look thin. You create the magical reflection by making smart choices every moment of every day.
There are no magic jeans that will make you instantly slim. You create the magic by setting goals which will help you slip comfortably into those jeans.
There are no magic books that by only reading them they will make your body slender. You create the magic when you actively use the suggestions and tools provided by the authors.
There are no magic foods or drinks that will shrink your body size. You create the magic by controlling the portions of the foods or drinks you choice to consume.
The magic is within you. You alone have the magical power to transform your body and your life! What are you waiting for?
It was at this point that I really took charge and did the necessary work - well for a while anyway. Somewhere between May 2011 and December 2012 I lost focus and slowly began slipping back. I was so close to my goal and I allowed myself to lose sight of it. Well....it's clearly in my sights now. I will be there by the beginning of summer - maybe even before and I'm arriving at my goal more toned, energetic, positive and healthier in both body and mind. I KNOW what I am capable of accomplishing - even though I may have forgotten at times. Going forward I will remind myself at the beginning and end of each day so I never forget again.
Have a wonderful, healthy, "Magical" day!!
