"Just because the road ahead is long, is no reason to slow down. Just because there is much work to be done, is no reason to get discouraged. It is a reason to get started, to grow, to find new ways, to reach within yourself and discover strength, commitment, determination, discipline. The road ahead is long and difficult, and filled with opportunity at every turn. Start what needs starting. Finish what needs finishing. Get on the road. Stay on the road. Get on with the work. Right now you’re at the beginning of the journey. What a great place to be! Just imagine all the things you’ll learn, all the people you’ll meet, all the experiences you’ll have. Be thankful that the road is long and challenging, because that is where you’ll find the best that life has to offer.” (Ralph Marsten)

Okay! I signed the "Never Quit Pledge", set a new goal, and then I quit and gained 7 pounds!!! What was I thinking????? I stopped tracking my food and didn't spend much time on SP. Quitting is easy...a little pie here an extra serving there, and soon you have gained back the weight you have lost:-(
Yesterday and today I've stayed on track pretty well. I MUST keep that going! And I MUST get back to the gym!
It felt so good to lose 25 pounds and get to wear clothes that I couldn't wear in years! I plan to lose the 7 pounds I've gained, and more!
I just hope I can stay motivated! I really DO appreciate the Sparkers who have stuck by me with notes, etc.

Although I needed to lose 10 more pounds to reach my old goal, I'm going ahead and setting a NEW GOAL! Now, I will need to lose 20 more to reach my goal! I think that when I looked at my ticker and saw that I only needed to lose 10 pounds, it somehow gave me permission to ease up and be too lenient on myself. I gave myself permission to have dessert too many times and to skip workouts too often.
No more looking through rose-colored glasses! With a new goal set, I hope to see clearly that I really need to tighten up. I'm going back to measuring my portions, because they have gradually increased in size. I'm going to force myself to get some exercise each day. I hope that the scales will finally began to move in the right direction and maybe sometime this very year, I will arrive at my goal!

I'm joining the "Never Quit Pledge" will you?
Taken from Teresa's blog, UNSTOPPABLE.
I have added my name to the bottom of the list.
Never Quit Pledge
Today, I promise I will not quit.
I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.
I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.
I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.
I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.
I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!
