As a dream carrier, the courage to keep pressing forward presents itself on a daily basis - each day rising up and moving toward the goal because you know that this goal of reaching your ideal weight no longer belongs to only you. This is not to say that you don't go through adverse times - when you feel like you're not making the progress you desire and you feel 'out of it' that day.
But it does mean that you'll get up and keep going until you hit the target. You know that as you reach your goal that you are the guiding light for others who are struggling in this area. You will encourage them along with your words of strength and faith because you understand their struggle.
You may not realize this, but you may be the only light for another to lead them out of their darkness, to shine the light in their path with your courage and will to stay the course. It matters now how long it takes or how many attempts you made. What matters most is that you keep moving forward until you reach your journey's end.
When you look back, you'll be amazed at the progress and the process you went through. It will make you that much stronger for other goals you choose to pursue.
At this moment you may not feel much like you're an encouragement to yourself much less others, but your own strength may surprise you. You are stronger than you think and you have a whole lot more to offer than you're giving yourself credit for.
Don't shrink into self pity and discouragement. Feel the courage and keep pressing on. Wipe off the dust of setbacks, it's all a part of the strengthening process, and do what you know you can do. Take a rest if you must, but not too long, and get back in there knowing that you are a champion.
