Found this poem recently and thought Id share it with you all:

Don't Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won, had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

By Edgar A. Guest

I am slaying dragon after dragon!

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 
2 Timothy 1:7 KJV

And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness sake [for what is right], you are blessed. And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. 
1 Peter 3:13-14, NKJV

Hey Sherye like the post says....dont give up! You are doing great! You can do this! If you journal then go back through that and find out what you did wrong, if not then you should start so that way you can go back to it for reference. Good and Bad! You will be fine just get back on that wagon, honey we learn from our mistakes! emoticon

My first mini goal is to lose 25 pounds or 1/3 of my weight by Easter.

My second mini goal is to lose 25 pounds or 1/2 of my remaining weight by my one year anniversary August 26th.

My third mini goal is to lose the final 25 pounds by Christmas.

My final mini goal is to maintain my weight for the rest of my life.

Well, its been 2 weeks since I have changed weight or dropped inches. Frustrating esp. since Im doing all Im sposed to be doing! I am going to just stick with the Plan! I know that this is good for me. Usually Ive given up by now - this time I will NOT!!

Guess what else Im gaining through this?!

Im gaining discipline, persistence, and knowledge!!

My week has not been as good as I'd hoped but it's ok. It seems I didn't plan very well so I ended up hungry. Since I didn't plan I didn't have my healthy snaks with me and ended up telling myself I'll just wait until I get home.
The good thing is I learned.

How is your weekend going?

Thank you Sherye-you're doing pretty fabulous yourself! Your clothes must be huge on you, now that you've lost about 30 lbs! Dana-thanks for the tip on Ovaltine. That is probably a great way to get in your chocolate fix. Are you drinking regular or sugar free?

Awww thanks Carey!! ((((((GROUP HUG)))))) cuz we are all doing awesome!!!!

So I just had to add what i had for my snacks last night to bring my calories up. I had a cup of Ovaltine, for the first time EVER! WOW it was yummy and really good for you! Then i had some popcorn with a bit of nonhydrogenated margarine and an orange. Come out at just over 1300 cals for the day...and my piechart was excellent!

How's everyone's day going so far?
Hugs,
Dana

Hiya ladies...been a weird day calorie wise for me. Although I had a good snack after my morning workout, I sorta missed lunch cuz of my nap and then got preoccupied with cleaning the house before the kiddos got home from school so my calories are only at 803 and that's AFTER dinner. I made Chicken and Veggie Couscous for dinner YUM!

So I will be having a good snack tonight! =)

I'm doing pretty well-no binges for over 3 weeks now! I'm trying to fight getting frustrated with not seeing the weight come off as quickly as I'd like. I'm just trying to keep doing what I know works, and to enjoy each part of the journey. Patience has never been my strong suit, but I'm trying :)

Doing good but not doing good. I am trying to stay within my calories, but it is not working. I am also trying to stay away from temptation. At my work we have an appreciation day for faculty and students. there is candy out in large bowls... I am trying to stay away from all that and not eat it. I want to go and buy something out of the machines, that way I can hide it in my pockets and no one will know that I ate it. Well, except for me. I have an appointment coming at 3 (it is now U.S. Central time 2:20) but after that I am going to try to go for a short walk to hopefully get my mind off food and the temptation that awaits me every time I have to go up to the front desk... This will go on for the rest of the week. emoticon

Take care. I'm trying to.

The desire to lose HAS to come from me alone..to gain all those things you mentioned plus to just do it for yourself. If you are doing it for others, it will not work. I have to make a conscious decision that I am worth it whether I lose weight or not. I know I can one day or hour at a time...whatever it takes.

Better health so I can live a longer healthier life
Self respect
the ability to look in a mirror and like what I see
a new wardrobe (sounds good)
confidence in my self

This information really makes you see losing weight as a gain not a lose. Great news to spread!!!
Thanks


Since I have been a member of Spark People I have never felt so motivated. I will get to my goal.

I would like to gain a healthy body and the assurance I'm treating myself the best way that I can. I also would like to know I'm as attractive as I can be for my husband.

We are more than conquerors and can do all things through Christ Jesus!

Hello everyone...I found a little more info, it is not near as long as the other one. Here goes...
~The real key to success with weight loss is to stop "trying to lose weight". Instead focus on a goal that is positive rather than negative. Nobody wants to lose. We want to gain.
~Nobody wants to be thought of as a "Loser". We want to be thought of as a "Winner". When you lose something you go looking for it. If you lost your wallet or your purse you would go looking for it, wouldn't you?
~People don't want to lose!

~You dont want to lose your way!
~You dont want to lose your heart!
~You dont want to lose sleep!
~You dont want to lose hope!
~You dont want to lose money!
~You dont want to lose time!

~So, STOP TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT!!!

~HERE IS THE SECRET...Focus on what you want to gain, not what you want to lose!

~Stop and think...What do you really want to gain?

~Better health
~Soaring self-esteem
~Super charged vitality
~A high state of fitness
~Drop-dead gorgeous looks
~Total Confidence in yourself
~Self R-E-S-P-E-C-T

~That is what most of the people we talk to want to gain!

~I challange you to all come up with a list of things you want to gain.

This information really helped me. It makes you see things in a different light. Maybe it will help some of you, maybe it wont. You never know until you try. We can all be here before you know it. emoticon Good Luck to everyone! emoticon

My first mini goal is to lose 25 pounds or 1/3 of my weight by Easter.

My second mini goal is to lose 25 pounds or 1/2 of my remaining weight by my one year anniversary August 26th.

My third mini goal is to lose the final 25 pounds by Christmas.

My final mini goal is to maintain my weight for the rest of my life.
