So, my son opened an old fortune cookie for a snack (I REALLY have to go grocery shopping! He'll soon be digging into the cough drops!) and the fortune read:
I've always known losing weight IS hard work, but I've never looked at it this way. You may not see the numbers on the scale moving quite as quickly (or at all) as you would like with all of the miles you may be logging, but your body is changing. You may not see the benefits of cutting back on fatty, sugary foods immediately, but everything has a cumulative effect. Do BOTH regularly and results will follow. It may not be several pounds down on the scale, but it could very well be the difference between needing high blood pressure medication, or insulin injections, or having a heart attack or a stroke or NOT.
THAT is a pay off I am willing to work hard for.
