I Take this Seriously. . . My Never Quit Pledge!!

Monday, April 16, 2012

Monday, April 16, 2012

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!

A good Spark Friend Posted this Pledge yesterday and I feel exactly the same way as no matter if it takes a Lifetime I will do my best at eating healthy and moving more. I'm in it for the "long haul". I'm actually happier since I joined Spark as rather than losing over 40 pounds I probably would have gained more weight than that. SparkPeople has enriched my life in so many ways and I thank those involved for keeping this a free website. I've made so many caring friends and appreciate and love every single one. I may be slower than a Turtle but in the end I will achieve all my Weight Loss Goals and be far healthier for achieving them.. I feel more confidant about myself now and even have learned to love myself more. I've learned so much from this website and all of you--thank you for being there for me! Overall, I feel better now than before I found Spark. Hugs to all of you trying like me to stop the excuses and keep moving forward. You and I both have what it takes to be Healthier!

I will make a Copy of this for Myself and Post it up in my kitchen where I spend a lot of my day!

    The Never Quit Pledge is an excellent one to adhere to.
Once you are into this healthy lifestyle it seems very normal and you forget that you lived any other way.
After all you are forming habits. Good habits.
So many of the actions and choices I make now, seem just as natural to me as if I have been doing them for years.
But of course there are a few that take longer. I didn't say it was a walk in the park, no it's work, but so worth it.
Take care, Tisha emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    YOU GO GIRL! These are lofty ideals and goals, and I know if we all adhere to them and believe in them, we will be the healthy people we strive to be. They're going up in my kitchen too. We can never quit--this new lifestyle is for LIFE!

Thanks Jill for sharing!!
