"Failing doesn't make you a failure. Giving up, accepting your failure, refusing to try again does!

I have four beautiful boys that I love with all my heart. Ages 16, 11, 8, and 5. My husband of 12 years is the most wonderful man in the world. He treats me like a queen and tells me he loves me every day.
I have spent most of my 20's having babies and struggling with my weight. I want to live my thirties getting my body back in shape and losing the extra weight. I am 5'2" and currently weigh about 186 pounds. It seems the more I focus on trying to lose weight the more I gain. I am at ...

I have spent most of my 20's having babies and struggling with my weight. I want to live my thirties getting my body back in shape and losing the extra weight. I am 5'2" and currently weigh about 186 pounds. It seems the more I focus on trying to lose weight the more I gain. I am at my heaviest now (other than when I was pregnant with my last son - I got up to 185 pounds right before I delivered). So, yeah - that's pretty depressing. I am almost to my full term pregnancy weight.

I am so inspired by other people's success stories and I can't get enough of those but when it comes to my own story, I get so overwhelmed.... I need to learn to take it 1 day at a time....instead of looking for the overnight results.

I have started and restarted my weight loss plan on this website over and over .. I never thought it would be this hard. Every new year, Every birthday, every Monday...lol seriously. The saddest part is that I've gained another 20 pounds since then.

So I honestly believe I have reached that "I'VE HAD IT" point. According to some, that is the moment we have to get to before we actually take charge and do something about our weight/diet/life, etc. I sometimes thought I've been there before...okay, maybe more than sometimes, but I really think its here. I'm not sure when exactly it hit. It wasn't this epiphany or anything. I've said for quite awhile I really need to get serious. (How many times have we said "I'm really going to get serious this time"?), but Now I can FEEL it. I am going to do this. I HAVE TO DO THIS. Soooooo...
Here we go again....

I wrote that last year around this time and failed yet again. I've been a member of this website for several years now - always starting and stopping again....BRING IT 2012!! I'm ready for you this year!!
************************************
1/7/2013 - Back again in full swing 2013. I have been doing great (of course we are only in week 1, which is always great :) but we are trudging through. I have high hopes and positive feeling about 2013.

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
-Og Mandino

"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
-Tom Venuto

"Just because we are knocked down does not mean that we are out.
We still have breath in our lungs and tears flowing down - all signs that we are alive!
Take a deep breath and be reminded that often our biggest struggles are stepping stones to our greatest victories."

“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
-John C. Maxwell

Pixie

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."
-Robert McKain
