UPDATED FEB-7-2010 -Well I regained 30 pounds back,why ?Because i quit tracking my food ,and working out.Well hopefully I learned my lesson,I have to remember that if i want to be healthy i have to exercise and watch what i eat.and that once i quit doing that the pounds come back so fast.
My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior—
from violent men you save me.
-2 Samuel 22:3
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
A righteous man may have many troubles,
but the Lord delivers him from them all;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
if you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the struggler's, when loosing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!

A Dieters Poem.... Dont quit!
The Dieters Lament
Dear Lord help me to attain
the weight that I have often sought.
Help me to win the battle of
the bulge that I have often fought.
Lead me on the righteous path
to eating healthy meals.
My goal is to cut the fat;
to know the joy a thin girl feels.
Seal my lips when I am tempted
to stuff my mouth with sweets galore,
including the luscious hot fudge sundaes,
topped with whipped cream I adore.
Guide me on the path to health,
by acquiring a taste for low fat food.
Teach me patience and perseverance.
Uplift my spirits so that I dont brood
Eliminate my fear of failure
which zaps my diet from the start.
Give me the courage to look away
from a slice of pie or an apple tart.
Help me to attain my goal,
A slender woman in stylish clothes.
With a little help I will succeed
and drop those pounds until it shows.
To show my thanks I will pledge
to help other women to succeed,
by passing on this little prayer
for other dieters to read.
