Never give up

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Yesterday, actually all last week I have been so down because of my terrible habits creeping back into my life. When I weighed-in I was ready to throw in the towel, I was so embarrased I was even going to quit the tigers :(. I let myself have a small pity party yesterday oh boohoo, then this morning I said this is ridiculous, what a great opportunity to have such support and true caring. Then I opened up the Mini challenge, just what I neededI love the challenge it takes care of all the things I need to do. I don't need to feel embarrased about my weight gain, I am human and I have the choice to make the changes I need to, to have a healthier life and feel better about myself inside and out. I want to have the energy to keep up with my children and grandchildren, my 14 year old son just fixed his bikes for the summer and I hope to start riding bikes with him TODAY! I have two choices, I can feel sorry for myself or I can do something about it. I choose to do something about it not tomorrow but today! This afternoon I am headed for the doctors to get a good check up and make sure my sugar is under control, I recently had an accident (last month) that put my back out for a while but I think I am doing better now, so no more excuses. Look out world Kim is about to take life by the horns and live it to the fullest. Thank you all my White tiger and spark friends for not giving up on me like I gave up on myself.
Tigers really do take care of each other.

    We all have those moments of frustration and even pity parties, but you are right, we cannot give up. For some of us at this point in our lives to give up again would mean to choose an early, unnecessary death. I don't want that for myself.
    So we get back up and take the control back.
    Even if this week's weigh in sucks, we still keep pushing.
    The alternative is not acceptable.

    emoticon Blog! I can so relate Kim! I had poor stress management, was full of anger and then had a pity party. I gave up on myself and as a result put back on just over 50 pounds of the almost 250 pounds I had lost. You are so right that we only have two choices and feeling sorry for ourselves doesn't change the situation. If I can finally get my spark back you can too! It is ironic that a group of tigers is called a streak. We are going to get a streak going of healthy lifestyle days. emoticon emoticon
