CONSIDER THE MOSO BAMBOO TREE cblessum on 5/22/2006
THE MOSO BAMBOO TREE GROWS IN THE FAR EAST. WHEN FIRST PLANTED, THE TREE SHOWS NO VISIBLE GROWTH FOR UP TO FIVE YEARS! NONE! TO THE EYE, THE TREE JUST SITS THERE. BUT THEN, AS IF BY MAGIC, THE TREE BEGINS TO GROW AT A RATE OF 2 1/2 FEET PER DAY! IN SIX WEEKS THE TREE REACHES ITS FULL HEIGHT OF 90 FEET - IN JUST SIX WEEKS!

BUT IT ISN'T MAGIC. THE FIVE YEARS IT SEEMINGLY JUST SAT THERE DORMANT, THE TREE WAS PUTTING OUT MILES OF ROOTS. JUST BECAUSE WE COULDN'T SEE VISIBLE GROWTH, DOESN'T MEAN IT WASN'T GROWING. THE ROOT SYSTEM THAT TOOK FIVE YEARS TO ESTABLISH ALLOWS FOR THIS PHENOMENAL GROWTH.

AND SO IT GOES WITH WEIGHT LOSS! EVEN IF THE SCALE DOESN'T SHOW YOUR PROGRESS THAT WEEK, YOU ARE DEVELOPING THE HABITS YOU NEED FOR LIFE & THE RESULTS WILL SHOW IF YOU STICK TO IT. DON'T EVER GIVE UP!
