Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up.

SparkPeople's Comments

It's easy to make excuses not to exercise or to eat junk food. But remember what happens when you overcome those excuses: You get closer to a happier, healthier, fitter you. A year from now, do you want to be in the same place, or do you want to be able to look back on how far you've come? Every time you overcome an excuse, you're one step closer to your goal!

Well I wish I had have read this 5 minutes ago I had just made an excuse to eat chocolate although it was very nice, the feeling that I gave up isn't, SO HERE GOES NO MORE GIVING UP DAY 1.

Excellent! I agree 110%. I don't want to ever start over again.

Yep, this is for me. I excel at repeating the problem. I'm taping this where I'll see it often, and keep my nose pointed toward the SOLUTION!

This spoke to me ! I have started over so many times and am on day 7 of starting over again! This time I will not slip up. I won't quit .Spark people, HELP!! I cannot fail, again. I have vowed to lose 14 pounds by Christmas and I will not give up!! I am a perfectionist and when I slip from the strict exercise schedule I have set for myself I call it FAILING and have a terrible time getting back on track!
