We only fail when we fail to try. ANYTHING that is out of our comfort zone is always scary
On the TV show 'Castle' (the title character is a famous fiction mystery writer) his daughter asked him why he keeps a rejection letter fraamed in his office. He responded that it "reminds me of what I've overcome." This is why I keep framed 'fat pictures' in my house: to remind me of what I have overcome.
One of the first articles I read when I joined Spark was on Lincoln's list of failures.
Awesome, good for you!! I also have my gym bag packed for later.. I havent been in a month. It is nerve-racking to start again, but take it one step at a time and you'll be fine. Best of luck today!

I said I was starting the gym and trying to watch what I ate today, and I meant it! I have my gym bag packed, and I'm ready to go. ALWAYS scary to 'try again', because I'm afraid I will fail again. I can't can't even utter those words, though. After jean shopping yesterday, there is no option. Plus, my Dr. said my sugar is creeping up there. NO WAY! I DON'T WANT TO BECOME ANOTHER STATISTIC!
