A schedule and my habits help me through the discouraging times---my values/priorities. Sometimes these change when I see how they are unrealistic and contributing to the discouragement. I don't actually change my values as much as my emphasis on some of them, such as perfectionism, my various roles in life, taking care of myself.

This lesson really hit home with me because my weight hasn't moved in a while. The moments of discouragement are pretty few and fairly far in between - the don't usually last long as DR Beck pointed out. But they're there. I do try to keep positive and self-talk myself with appropriate responses. But sometimes I also allow myself a 10-section pity party, then I move on and do another workout or read another health book just to remind myself to keep on track.

I am still losing weight at this point, so no discouragement yet. But I know me -- in each and every past attempt at weight loss there has always come a time when it all just seems to be too much and I quit.

I am using this lesson to get ready for that day, whenever it comes. I will have the tools and the knowledge and the strength, and I WILL stick to this plan.



Your life is not a dress rehearsal, it is the real thing. Do what makes you happy. Do it now.

I'm not discouraged easily. Who doesn't have a down time every blue moon?? I encourage myself in the Lord and keep on keeping on. I know I have to choose to get up and go everyday and that is what I do. I spark mail my spiecal friends here on spark and call my prayer partner. I try not to look to forward into the future. Todays problems are enough so to speak.

THERE IS NO TEMPTATION TAKEN YOU BUT SUCH AS IS COMMON TO MAN; BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL, WHO WILL NOT SUFFER YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT YOU ARE ABLE BUT WILL WITH TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY OF ESCAPE THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT.

I try not to get discouraged, but it's just not possible to always keep up a happy face. I'm discouraged at just how slowly I lose weight now that I've been through menopause and am over 50. It used to be so much easier. Now it seems like circumstances and physiology are all conspiring against me despite my best efforts. But I will give myself credit for this: I keep trying. I have not given up yet.

I found the information on this day very helpful. I am not and have not been feeling discouraged, but if it comes up, these ways to deal with it will make things easier.

I plan on re-reading my response cards that I've made and will make to help me through a difficult time. I also plan to remind myself that whatever it was that made me down, it's worth it for the end result.

I couldn't find this thread so I'm starting another one.

It's important to remember you can do what you need to do! Whenever you feel overwhelmed or discouraged what will you do?
