Time Out Tuesday: Perseverance

Love love the fact that my slow but steady weight loss has been noticed. Had a kiddo today yell in the hall(he's a rotten one) "Ms. T, you've gotten skinnier!" To that I said thank you. I truly took it as a compliment. Other kids and lots of the staff noticed today (thanks to not seeing me since before Christmas Break).

Perseverance is the key, whether it is weight loss, finding a job, or finishing a tough task. Stick with it and keep going. Normally I do just one quote, but something is telling me to post more than one and I found some stellar ones.

So if you are like me and trying to lose weight or keep it off, perseverance! If you have a gain one week, keep on going because you'll lose it the next (or 2 weeks), perseverance! If you have a tough kiddo in your class, perseverance! Or even if it just a tough day, perseverance!

(Oh and what do you think of the layout? It may not be the same in a few days lol ).

Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
