Persistence and Determination with Weight Loss

Persistence and Determination with Weight Loss

Recovering From a Healthy Hissy Fit

Today I talk about coming back from a "Health Hissy Fit."

It sure looks like I know what my winning combination is, and yet here I am two weeks later and I'm at the weight I was two weeks ago. 

I did gain some weight, and so I lost some weight to get back to where I started. 

Hissy Fits are a bad idea. I don't recommend. 


I found some great quotes about persistence:


“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”

― Winston S. Churchill


“Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.”

― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart


“The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense.”

― Thomas A. Edison


“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

― Calvin Coolidge


If you love stats then you will love Walkmeter (they also have apps for bike riding and running). see  https://abvio.com/ 

I love that I can have what appears to be a speedometer which makes it easy to see if my heart rate is where I want it to be (I realize I could just start the heart rate app). The app is $10/year. I love stats.
