My friend who I started dieting with last year before falling off the wagon said that she had lost 50 lbs rather quickly and then when I, and a few others, stopped tracking (we were all friends on the daily plate and irl) that she gained 8 lbs back.
Then i came back.
and she is losing again, and I brought others with me too.
She told me that it's less about herkeeping on me for my sake as it is for me to keep on others, and that being a motivation is more important than having an inspiration basically.
I never thought of it this way. Just thought I'd share the sentiment.
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it's the courage to continue that counts." --Winston Churchill\
