Veni Vidi Vici | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans


This is in Utah. You’re all totally jealous right? Right.

I know you’re all thinking that I must be blogging right in the middle of that recurring dream about how I actually restored that Latin language right in the middle of my 1oth grade English class. You know, the one where I stand up on my desk, rip my shirt off, and proclaim to the other 24 kids and half-drunk teacher that Latin will rise and be dominant once again…

Even though that dream is totally awesome, that’s not what this post is about.

This post is about doing three things and doing them so well that success is inevitable. Seriously, if we do these three things we won’t be able to dodge greatness if we try.

Veni (I Came)

Isn’t the first part of this weight loss challenge showing up in the first place? Lots of people live fat for a long time. A looonng time! There’s never a desire (or at least an effort) to change because things are ok how they are. We’re comfortable enough. Well, at least until it’s time to fly on an airplane. Anyway, at some point we need to say “I want to lose weight” and we need to put on our game faces. We need to show up.

Vidi (I Saw)

Once we get ourselves ready to roll there’s a whole lot of rollin’ that needs to be done. I’m not talking about pigs-in-a-blanket either. We need to move more and eat better. We need to look at the road ahead of us and anticipate obstacles. After we get the wheels (figuratively speaking, you’re using your own damn legs) rolling we can create a plan that will see us through to success.

Vici (I Conquered)

Once our plan’s in place and we’re envisioning our goal. It’s time for some serious work. The kind where you get “down and dirty.” The kind of work that feels like work. We keep our focus and our heads up and we put one foot in front of the other one day at a time. We don’t look up to the summit, we just look one step ahead and go little by little. Before we know it, we’ll be looking down from the mountaintop  with a sense of pride that is unmatched.

These three little steps can helps us accomplish some pretty amazing things!

The day is not far when you’ll be chanting “I came, I saw, I conquered!”

I know, because if I can do it, there’s not a doubt in my mind that you can do it.

We came, we saw, we conquered!
