I can relate to that Report
I never started over on my diet. I gained weight about 2 years ago the first time in 30 years because of a blood clot in one lung and I could not walk very much without extreme pain, even had pain walking to the kitchen to cook, I mad a lot of instant unhealthy foods for 8 months. I have been on track since February 2,016. I still had the clot but the pain lessened. I lost 45 pounds since then and before this happened I was size 12 for 30 years after leaving high school for one year.During high school I was size 10. I am size 10 again. I became healthy after I left high school and kept it that way. This is the first diet I have ever been on. Report
Short sweet and straight to the point! Report
I have no idea how many times I gave up before I finally got it. No giving up for me now! Report
So true! Report
Meh. I never really decide to give up. I just drift off & get distracted & next thing I know I'm gaining weight back.
Not applicable, 0/5 motivational value. Report
Always / Never. As an avowed "lover of rules", I would have loved that quote a few years ago.

I have moments that are what they are. If it means I start over, it does. What does starting over mean? Failure? Is failure really a "bad" thing?

I like "it depends".

I learned to walk by failing. A lot. And starting over. A lot.

I'm learning new skills of self-kindness and self-compassion. Well, honing them. I was pretty horrible at it a few years ago. It wasn't easy to learn. Report
Real talk. I want to succeed. I don't want to be starting over every month. If I never give up, I will never have to start over. That is my goal. Report

I know this is supposed to be a motivational quote, but I read it as negative self-talk. Maybe it's just me. I prefer my motivational quotes to be positive and self-affirming. Report

I needed this. Report
So True. Report
I have this on my laptop! I get so much out of the motivational stuff! Have another one on my computer desktop at work too! Made a "wall of motivation" which I taped to my bathroom mirror. See it every morning as I get ready for work. It has helped me stay on track, or brought me back when I do stray! Report
Give up??? Sometimes I wonder if I've actually STARTED:) Report
good idea Report

Self discipline ... making new habits .... growing up ... I need all those things! Very thought-provoking quote! Report
The quotes can help re-ignite the spark when motivation starts to lag! Report

Just keep putting one foot in front of the other..... I keep telling myself I need to step it up. Maybe it will sink in..... Report

A life plan makes so much more sense than on again, off again; success, failure. Thank you for this blog. Report
This is where I'm at right now so I really needed to see this!! Report
That, in a nutshell, seems to be the difference between a diet (starting over...and over) and a lifestyle (not giving up). Report

This is applicable to so much in life. Report
