The acceptance of defeat.
One of my favorite movies is "Facing the Giants" and there is this wonderful quote that a father who is wheelchair bound tells his son:
"If you accept defeat, David, then that's what you'll get."
How many times in my weight loss attempts (and other areas of life) have I accepted defeat before it even happened? I set myself up to fail and thus I failed.
Not this time. I refuse to accept defeat in this journey. No matter the amount of time it takes to reach my goals I will press on.
