If you've started out in pursuit of your goal
If you've really tried with your heart and your soul,
But somehow things got out of control---

When you've tried your best to do what you should
And you thought this time that you surely would,
But once again, you didn't do good---

When you've worked so hard to follow a dieters way
And you fought to win a victory each day.
But one more time you went astray---

When you've tried so hard to yourself to be true
And do the things that you know you should do,
But once again you failed to come through---

When the road to success seemed much too long
And each temptation was oh so strong
And once again you gave in to wrong---

When you've told your friends what you planned to do
And trusted them to help you through
But soon discovered it's up to you---

When you know you must be physically fit,
But your hope seems gone and you're stuck in a pit
That's not the time for you to quit---

When the week seems long and successes few
And at weigh-in time you're feeling blue,
Remember tomorrow is just for you---

To start again means a victory's been won
And starting over again means a race well run
And starting over again proves it can be done
So don't just sit there---

    I think each time we start over we have two choices - one is to let our setback make us quicker yo quit the next time or the other choice is to dust ourselves off, learn from our mistakes and sally forth emoticon

    Very nice lita. I need to do just that with our little lightworkers team. It needs a boost of energy. Lost 4 pounds this week. I appreciate all the support and love that you give everyone. Namaste, Pam
