Never a Failure


Monday, January 21, 2013

I have been making bad choices, mostly food wise. I know that I shouldn't eat excessively, I know I should eat fresher, non processed food. I know that my food choices are directly effecting my goals. I know that I would like to be more fit and I know that the way I'm eating isn't going to do that.

I do know I am too hard on myself, but I feel like it's the only way to keep myself real. I have to hate myself. I also know that's not true. I know that I need to be real with myself but I really should never hate myself.

Making bad choices always makes me feel like I'm a let down, it makes me feel disappointed and often it makes me feel like a failure.

But I am not a let down. I should never be anything other than proud of myself, never disappointed. And lastly I AM NOT A FAILURE! The only way I would be a failure is if I quit trying. As long as I am still here, still trying then I am succeeding. The only time you truly fail, and I mean TRULY fail is the day you give up all hope and just QUIT! A true failure is someone who doesn't try, and by god I will NEVER quit trying. I will never quit pushing myself, I will never quit fighting for what I want.

    I completely understand what you're saying, but you are NOT a failure. As long as you continue to fight, you're a success. *HUGS*

    You are NEVER a failure! Look how far you've come! Look at what you've accomplished! A failure doesn't do what you've done. Besides, if I was struggling like you are right now, would you hate me or tell me I'm a failure? Of course not. So give yourself the same courtesy and consideration you'd give to anyone else. You have done a fabulous job!

I have been where you're at, and I eventually did give up. I have been struggling to get back on track ever since. Don't stop exercising, don't stop tracking, and just keep plugging away. Maintaining is harder than losing, because there is no reward of pounds lost. You are just staying where you're at. If you can't figure out why you can't stay in control, maybe seek some counseling? Maybe someone who specializes in weight issues. I did that briefly, and it did help, but I didn't stick with it. I don't want you to go through what I went through. Hang in there and just keep active and eat right 90% of the time!
