Looking for a fresh bottle of inspiration and motivation. Does anyone have some?

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I don't know if it is good or bad to have been stuck this long, but still trying to come back for inspiration. I feel like I can stay in control of so many other aspects of my life except when it comes to food and exercise. My motivation seems to come in waves and I have been on the low side for a while now. My weight is staying relatively the same-only up by a few pounds, so it could be worse.

As Barry Manilow says, 'I've been up, down, trying to get the feeling again.'

    This inspirational quote by Winston Churchill helps me: Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. emoticon

    I hear you and understand where you are at. I have not lost a single pound, but I do feel better and more energized after I make positive choices. Sometimes when we get stuck we need to spice things up somehow, change up our meals or exercise routine. Try and think if there is something you have always wanted to try and go for it! Maybe it will be enough to get your spark going again.
Many told me yesterday (when I was down on myself) that it is not so important what the scale is telling us as it is how you feel inside. Keep going and do not give up! We give so much power to the scale, a doctor once told me the scale is just an item in your house that you bought. Would you let the toaster determine what kind of day or mood you will be in? I thought that was such great insight and I try to remember that on the "not so great" days. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!
