    I've been lurking for a while now as I've been "on hold" for a while and have noticed a lot of people are struggling and a whole lot of people are really desperate to be skinny now - no - yesterday and are willing to do just about anything to get there.

    A thought came to mind the other day that although it's exciting and really good that at the end of our journey's we will be slimmer and much healthier, the journey can be great too if we let it!

    I am just realising that exercise doesn't have to be bad and something that has to be put off and eating healthy doesn't have to mean rabbit food. Anyway, I though of the Miley Cyrus song The Climb and the words are just right to encourage me on my weight loss journey and I hope they do you too! (I've attached the link to a video in case anyone hasn't heard it)

    YouTube - Miley Cyrus - The Climb ( Lyrics/Songtext )


    I can almost see it
    That dream I am dreaming
    But there's a voice inside my head saying
    "You'll never reach it"

    Every step I'm taking
    Every move I make feels
    Lost with no direction
    My faith is shaking

    But I gotta keep trying
    Gotta keep my head held high

    There's always gonna be another mountain
    I'm always gonna wanna make it move
    Always gonna be a uphill battle
    Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

    Ain't about how fast I get there
    Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
    It's the climb

    The struggles I'm facing
    The chances I'm taking
    Sometimes might knock me down
    But no, I'm not breaking

    I may not know it
    But these are the moments that
    I'm gonna remember most, yeah
    Just gotta keep going

    And I, I got to be strong
    Just keep pushing on

    'Cause there's always gonna be another mountain
    I'm always gonna wanna make it move
    Always gonna be a uphill battle
    Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

    Ain't about how fast I get there
    Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
    It's the climb, yeah!

    I have to say I completely agree with you about enjoying the journey to get there :) I enjoy trying to reach all of the little goals along the way. There are definitely some tough days but I think those are good in the long run for me- when I am at my goal weight/size I can look back at what I've achieved and it will be something to be proud of (and it's something I think I can be proud of myself for already) :)
