Roger Federer

I was listening to the radio last night and heard a quote from John McEnroe's autobiography about being #1. Couldn't find it on a quick search of the Internet, but it was something about working so hard to become #1 and then when you become #1 you realize that you have to work even harder to stay #1. Struck me much the same as the struggle to lose weight and the bigger struggle to keep it off.

Working to lose weight becomes a challenge and strategies are formed and routines are set to get to a goal. Once that goal is reached the reality sets in. Now what? The goal is reached and the incredibly difficult part is yet to come. Staying on top of your game is hard and continuous focus is a must. There will be faults along the way, but those who have worked so hard to get where they are today will continue to be a winner.

Wimbledon was the most amazing tennis I have watched in a long time. I really wasn't rooting for either competitor, only for a good match and that it was.

I thing that we just need to stay focused on the fact that we need to eat healhty and exercise and work hard at doing that the best we can. If we strive to do it, even when we fault, we will be right back on track and should be fine.
