The only real failure...

Friday, August 02, 2013

Looking through my Pinterest fitness board and saw this. It made tears come into my eyes and roll down my cheeks. I just feel so burned incredibly incapable of mastering this demon. The two things keeping me hanging on by a thread are my family and the support I get here on SparkPeople. But she's right. I'm only really a failure if I quit...lately, I feel like I have. I don't want to completely disengage.

    Not sure what you are facing but remember, any change you are making to improve (ie: eating habits, exercise) are improving your health. It may be small and may not be reflected on a scale, but you are still improving. So stick with it and you'll move past this hump.

    At least you recognize that you need support and are asking for it before you give up on yourself. I love Jillian! She would tell you that you can do this! It is not an easy journey to take. Lots of ups and downs! Just take it one day at a time. Pick something easy that you know you can follow through with - 8 glasses of water or 10 minutes of exercise - whatever. Maybe you just need to pick a few small, attainable goals until you feel back on track! Don't give up - we are here for you!

    I printed off a quote I saw on SP, but don't know who wrote it:
    Every struggle in your life has shaped you into the person you are today. Be thankful for the hard times, they have made you stronger.

    Sometimes we just need to take a look and regroup. It isn't essential to lose a set amount all the time, sometimes it's good just to see if we can maintain where we are. It takes the pressure off, and then the enthusiasm returns and off we go again. You are nowhere near failing. Please just take a deep breath and take it one day at a time. We are all here with you and you CAN do it, time is all it takes.

    You can do this. You just have to find a way to make you a priority in your life. Then find activities you love to do and are able to(if you have any disabilities/medical conditions) You will get there. Don't give up.

    The harder it is to do something, the better you feel when you do it. Just do what you have to do today and tackle tomorrow tomorrow. emoticon
