What makes this time different...

You decide.
You walk.
You count.
You struggle.
You try.
You fail.
You cry.
You fight.
You get up.
You succeed.
You keep going.
You don't stop.
You Believe.
You Achieve.
You win.

You inspire.
You nudge.
You bring to light.
You badger.
You celebrate.
You hold a mirror.
You reveal.
You encourage.
You stick with it.

What makes this time different? Blogging. I'm not alone anymore. I can read cool posts like yours for inspiration and I can share my successes and vent my frustrations and know that someone else is going through the same thing. Press on indeed.

That was great. My first thought with the last line was "I never win at anything." Which is true. But this time I can be a winner - I am against no one but myself. Thanks Chris.

Hooray for your honey going to the gym with you!! Mine wants me to count his calories for him and light a fire under his ass . . . . we'll see, I am kind of stuck myself right now. :S

And as for avoiding MILs, I think that is a SUPER goal for the challenge, lol. I am gonna be hoping to do some of that myself come the end of May. ♥
