The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.

~ Dolly Parton

In 1974, Dolly Parton was ecstatic when Elvis Presley wanted to record a cover of her latest hit, “I Will Always Love You.” But Presley’s manager told Parton the deal could only move forward if she signed away half the song’s publishing rights. At the time, this result was terrible for Parton to ensure, but eventually, the song and Parton ensured. Who can forget the scene with Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner in The Bodyguard?

The bottom line: Life and weight loss are full of little road bumps and pitstops. Don’t let them derail your chances at health and success. Endure the rain of temporary setbacks to get the sunshine of weight loss success. Good luck.
