Giving up, giving in, too tired to go on, can't fight anymore

Friday, August 30, 2013


Maybe these people felt the same way but they kept on going and were amazing examples of how, though severly disabled they kept on going.
I have done it...given excuse after excuse, why I didn't want to exercise or why I just had to eat that sugar or salt and calorie laden food. I had a birthday party and because I ate that cake I might as well have ice cream too. I had fast food for lunch so might as well eat what I want for dinner. I am just too tired to exercise today...I'll do it tomorrow. What is your excuse?
I bet you have a stack of them like I did. No more excuses! Aren't you tired of having to start over again? Isn't it time you faced the fact that you can do it, without putting it off until tomorrow. Just because school started and you have to go back to work doesn't mean you can't pack a lunch or that you don't have a few minutes a day to do exercise, take a walk or just dance. so come on and when you feel you can't do it watch that video again. Those people never gave up and neither should you!

Get up and do it!

    Some problems we are not able to solve, but many others we can solve. If obesity is a problem we can solve, then let's do it.
    Let's look for solutions to solve it and get rid of it once and for all. emoticon emoticon

    I hope you all know that I was not going to give up but I just wanted to show you how amazing these severly disabled people are. They don't give up and even go farther than a lot of us. I care and I want each and every one of us to succeed. I want to make obesity in America a disease of the past and forge a push into the future for good health. Let's make this country healthy.

    Great blog...Each day is a new day and we have to decide what choices we are going to make that day. It is easy to make excuses. We just have to focus on our goal.

    Now it's my turn to encourage you after all the encouraging you've done for me. All I can say is that if we would ever give up, give in, are too tired, can't fight anymore, we're really just asking for more trouble down the road, of being all the more giving up, giving in, way too tired, can't move, haven't fought it in years....and then we're so much more depressed because we didn't and we're all the more heavier and it's all the harder to do anything about it now. And it'd be all the more depressing because we'd have that much more to lose all over again. And we sure don't want that, so the best thing to do is to pick up where we left off and keep fighting it because it IS so rewarding to feel lighter, to wear nice looking clothes, to be able to move around more with less pain. Do you know that I feel so much better in my hips especially with losing 57#?! There's really no words that can describe that feeling!!!! emoticon emoticon SP shows us how and so do all our friends!!!! It's so doable!!!!!!!!! emoticon
