Every day is a choice!! Are you really choosing the things that you want to last!!! It is never too late to start making right choices and change your life!!

Don't Quit

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,

And you feel like the biggest failure in town.

When you want to give up just because you gave in,

and forget all about being healthy and thin.

So What! You went over your points a bit,

It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!

It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.

It's learning the skills to get back in your range.

It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.

You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."

It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.

You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.

To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,

if you summon the will to get back in the race.

But, often the struggler's, when loosing their grip,

Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.

And learn too late when the damage is done,

that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.

Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,

but facing each challenge will help you grow.

Success is failure turned inside out,

the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.

When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,

If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!

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 quit.

Life is strange 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 fair and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when 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.

Things I Have Learned on this Journey

Consistency is the key! Keep getting back on track!

If I am hungry and it is not time to eat: Drink Water and chew gum

Snack between meals.

Make sure I eat all meals and snacks.

Keep moving, even the smallest things help you keep you going in the right direction.

If I mess up, start again immediately, don't wait for the next day!

This is a great inspirational video.

I am so grateful to all who have encouraged, supported and kicked me in the pants along the journey. My heart is full of Thanksgiving and Praise to the One who never gives up on us and sends angels to help us along the way.

Climb Till Your Dream Comes True

Your tasks may often be many,
More than you think you can do --
The road may often be rugged
And the hills insurmountable, too...

But nothing in life that is worthy
Is ever too hard to achieve
If you have the courage to try it
And you have the faith to believe...

For faith is a mover of mountains
And there's nothing that God cannot do,
So start out today
With faith in your heart
And climb till your dream comes true!
