A Small Lesson on Never Giving Up!

Sunday, November 10, 2013



Just a short blog, but a loaded one. Have you been frustrated in your weight loss journey? I have!



I've been screaming at that scale. 2013 hasn't been kind to me like last year was.



Well, a little mouse has something to say to us all.



Look at this video, and learn what it is to have persistence and never give up until you attain your goal!

It appears this little mouse can teach us a lot. If I really want it, then I keep trying no matter how impossible it seems.



So, thank you, little mouse. You're fearless, resourceful and have taught me a lot.

And, you're very lucky as well.

    Love the mouse! Thanks for sharing. It sounds like so many people I know right now are struggling--struggling to lose weight, struggling to stay motivated, and so forth. So it's a good reminder.

    Well, he wasn't so much resourceful as he was determined--he stayed with his program, and finally succeeded.

    I can certainly identify with the year long plateau. I have been stuck now for 12 months. It is only in the past 3 weeks that I finally started moving down again. Please don't despair nor give up. We must keep on sparking whether we plateau or not. Eventually we will move again - down on the scale.

Thanks so much for the wonderful picturesque blogs. They are funny but truthful. Easy to remember and always helpful.

However, when do we ask ourselves "Should I be doing something different?". When do we re-evaluate our chosen eating program? When do we change our exercise program? When do we ask ourselves "Is being stuck keeping me safe somehow?" emoticon
