Progress begins where excuses end!

I happened to catch an episode of Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition last night. Participants are morbidly obese and their weight loss journey is chronicled for 12 months.  It’s amazing how much weight these people are losing in a year, but their complete attitude shifts is what struck me.   The guy on last nights show was a former football player who weighed in at an unbelievable 651 lbs! He lost over 250 lbs in that year, but something he said was a great lesson for most of us in life.  When he began to focus and successfully lose weight and reach his goals without the help of the trainer, he made the comment that after he stopped making  excuses was when things really started to change.  I know for me personally I have struggled with this in areas of my own life.  When you, first of all, start with a specific goal and make a sound plan to acheive that goal, nothing and I mean nothing should keep you from attaining it! Unless you let the excuses start to take over…. maybe when I have more money, or when my children are older, or when I pay my student loans off, or when I’m in better shape, or blah blah blah.  Once you have been given a vision and created a well thought out plan, it’s as easy as this…….JUST GO DO IT!!!!!!!
