I have found that through all the ups and downs of life the most important thing to remember, above all else, is never give up and NEVER surrender! There will be times when you are frustrated, bored, angry, or just plain tired. But if you keep moving forward you will come through stronger than before. You may not always meet every goal or lose every pound but the effort you put forth will teach you perseverance, strength, patience and that you are stronger than you think you are!

My mantra is ....well, one of them, I should say, since I have several to keep me moving forward and to stay on track, is: " Never give in, never give up and never surrender" Never give into the self doubts that sometimes want to overwhelm me, but if I do, I never give up control.
Not to the excuses, doubts or recriminations that inevitabily follow. Most of all, never surrender to those nagging thoughts that-- is it worth it, or more like, am I worth it?...for the answer to that is "YES, I AM SO WORTH IT!" Surrender is not an option.
