What will happen if you give up? Will you feel better? I bet the answer to that is no.
I'm struggling right not too but I've given up many times and I know where that lands me....look at my ticker. I've never just NOT given up and kept plugging along. That's what my plan is this time....just don't quit.
I was thinking yesterday about processes. I teach 2nd grade and have absolutely no problem understanding, accepting, and working with the fact that children learn and develop skills through a process. I support, redirect, reteach, etc as they work through their learning. WHY can't I accept and understand that weight loss is the same? I'm learning, I'm making mistakes, I'm practicing. It's a process. I'm patient with my students (and my own child) but not so much with me. I treat myself as though I should always be perfect. That's not particularly conducive to learning.
So, just for today, let's be patient with ourselves as we work though this battle. If not now, when?
