"If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up"
Sunday, April 21, 2013
I saw that quote at the gym on Monday. And I realized that it describes my entire life when it comes to my weight. 3 years ago I lost 35 pounds, went from an 18 to a 10, and was only about 10 pounds away from my goal. Slowly I let 20 pounds of that come back on, and now here I am AGAIN, fighting to get back out of the 180's and back down to 170, which is where I was in the first place 3 years ago when I was almost at my goal.
For months now it's been the same thing: I try to get back on track, I don't see instant results, so I give up and eat out of frustration, and the number goes higher again.
No more. I will stay on this path, no matter how long it takes me to reach my goal, and I will not quit. Quitting means having to start over, and I'm tired of starting over.
