Success vs. Failure

My goal with this project is to realize that failure is only eating the mountain whole;  success is eating the mountain in small bites until it is gone.  My mountain is the weight I gained when I felt like I was being thrown away (failed marriage) and decided that I was not worth taking care of myself.  I stopped worrying about my weight, I stopped putting on  make-up or even doing my hair.  Fast forward five years and I have found someone who supports me 100% in everything I do: work, school, my children. I can't ask for a better person to be in my life.  Now I want to lose the weight I have gained, not for him, but for me.  I want to be the person I should be and was (healthy and fit).  I have a tendency to want to accomplish everything at once and be done with it.  This is a life changing decision on my part and I need to treat it as such.  My goal is to take small steps and achieve big things.  My first goal is to just start walking again.  Today I signed my daughter and myself up for the 5K9 run/walk in Feb. it is run by Petco and you can bring your dog.  I have three and all of the love to walk so they will be happy and benefit from my wanting to get into shape.  I am excited to start this journey. I have 86 lbs to lose walking is just  the start.  I mean to learn how best to use my weights at home so I can start using them to gain muscle.  I will work as hard as I have to, to lose the weight I have put on.  Besides my (ex) step daughter will be graduating in a little over a year and I would love to look wonderful (better than I was with him) when that day comes since I will be foreced to see him again.
