Bonnie looks forward to reading about the Fittest Loser's progress every Monday in Health & Fitness. She will receive a one-month membership to Curves. She offers these tips:
• Write down your goals, keep them in your mind's eye and return to them often, particularly when the inevitable slip-ups occur and you feel as if you might slide right back down that mountain.
• Give up your control over food and just live.
• Let go of the negative and make room to bring in the positive.
• Be in the present and an active participant in your life.
• Believe in yourself.
• Embrace change.
• Stay focused!
Her favorite inspiring quote:
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." -- Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher
