You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just the first step!

Getting rid of weight isn’t easy, but it is worth it. I say getting rid of because, if we lose it, we don’t want to find it again. We didn’t gain our weight over night, and we won’t lose it over night either. I have heard people say you are what you eat,( can’t eat a skinny person), but my favorite one I heard this weekend. You are not fat, you have fat. Just like you have fingernails, but you are not a fingernail.
You need to get up off the couch and start moving. By doing this, you are already 100% ahead of those that are still sitting on the couch. I don’t expect you to run a marathon, but just walking is a great start. Everyone has so much ambition when they start, that they try to do too much. The next day they hurt and they don’t want to do anything anymore. Start out slow and improve yourself each day. Try to walk 10,000 steps in a day. If you can’t and only get 3,000 steps in, that is still great. Try for 3,100 tomorrow! The next thing you know, you will be saying, I remember my first day, with a smile.
Suck it up and some day you won’t have to suck it in.
