If we want the benefits of something in life, we have to also want the costs. Most people dream of the rewards without the risks. The triumph without the trials. Don't be one of them. Life doesn't work that way. When you find something you want, start by asking yourself: What am I willing to give up to get it? Even with all our advancements, progress still requires old-fashioned work.
In a culture that seeks quick and easy results, we must learn the beauty of effort, patience, and perseverance. Be strong, be present, and build positive daily rituals that get you there.

I started on my weight loss journey because I wanted something. I wanted to be healthy. I wanted to be comfortable in my skin ... with my appearance and the way I feel. I wanted to have more energy. I wanted to be more active.
I'm finding there is a definite price to pay to achieve those results. It's not often an easy price to cough up!
I'm not giving up. I'm worth making the effort. I'm worth the cost.
