On the 17th I wrote that I was not about to quit even though I had not lost any lbs. This morning the scale went down 2.3 lbs. Small steps do work, they may be small, but work nontheless. I will keep at it, so you do the same=)
Its been 17 days that i have picked up where i left off on my weight loss goals and I have not lost, NOT ONE LBS=( But, Im not quitting. The weight will come off, slowly but surely=). SMALL STEPS are better than no steps at all. SO DONT YOU GIVE UP!
Afraid of going to a party because you might over eat? Go ahead and go. This is how I view parties. They are an opportunity to see friends and family; NOT A TICKET TO EAT EVERYTHING IN SITE. I either eat before I go or when I get to the party I fill my plate with healthy items and nibble on them. So go and enjoy yourself.=)
How many times have you fallen and gotten right back up? Staying on track is no different. Read as many SP stories, secrets, quotes, moitivations, and so forth until you find that clue word that will help you get on the right track again . If I can do it , so can you.=)
So what if we stop and smell the flowers. Cut a couple and take them with you. You don't have to stand still to smell them. Point being, Its okay to eat what we crave every now and then. Just dont lose sight of your goal, which is to eat healthy and be healthy. You are picking up where you left off because you are back here with Sp reading this. Coming back is the first step. I took a break from all this but in the back of my mind i knew I would come back. We all need motivation and support.
Try and try again. Dont give up. So what if this is your 3rd, 5th, or 10th time trying to be healthy, exercising, trying to lose weight. Whatever you are trying to do, keep doing it till you reach your goal. Good luck, WE CAN ALL BE WINNERS!
... start dieting, eating healthy, the gym; WHEN? TOMORROW? MONDAY? what is wrong with TODAY? didn't you already waste enough time? The difference between TODAY and tomorrow or monday is....the sooner you get started the faster you reach your goal
