Never give up, you kept me going

Monday, September 02, 2013

Many times you have told me that I inspired you but what you should know is that every time you write a comment, you make me feel that I am doing something good. You make me feel like I am worth it. I am an emotional eater and this week has been hard on me. I have made some mistakes and I am trying to fix it.
I want you to know that you all are keeping me going. for not letting me give up. I don't think I would but I have come close so many times. Writing blogs and giving you all a pep talk is doing double is helping me too. Many people say I can't blog.... I wouldn't know what to say. Just say what's in your heart. Put down on paper what you would say to help a friend. By helping another you help yourself too. You make a connection with them and come to know them as friends, who are making suggestions, cheering you on, helping you through the tough times.
I can't say this enough, but losing weight, is maybe, one of the toughest fights of your life. It is a battle to get healthier and freeing yourself from the fat that suffocates your body, squeezing the life out of your body, your self esteem, your very happiness.
so never give up, no matter how many times you have to start over and never be ashamed to admit your mistake. Getting it out makes you feel so much better than holding it in and pretending that everything is hunky there ever a time like that??

No matter how many times you fall, pick yourself up and start again.

never be afraid to take that step again.

Just be you and try to change what you don't like.

    You do inspire but one of the beauties of SP is that the inspiration goes both ways - when you inspire me, I inspire you too. Lovely blog.

    Losing weight and getting fit is hard and like you I have had a battle with comfort eating. I love your blog and agree that sometimes it starting over again that is the hard part giving up is not an option. Thanks for the reminder your emoticon

    Don't worry about the mistakes, learn from them! The scale is not the only tool to measure your accomplishments. Your mind is another tool. You have acquired more knowledge to use to reach your goals.
    Just keep moving forward, Pam, with little steps or long; sometimes walking slow, faster at other times, and even stopping just a little to get big gulps of breath. But always with your mind set to get where you decided to be. emoticon emoticon

    I like these words of wisdom from your blog this morning.

    “Don’t let the opinions of other define you
    Don’t let the doubts of others confine you”

    Thanks for sharing.
