    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! emoticon

    Hi Yolander and welcome to Spark People where you will find lots of information and tons of support and encouragement from all our members. You will find that we also have fun along the way. Drink your 8-8oz glasses of water a day (If you only drink one now, add to as you are able until you are drinking your 8 cups or more a day), watch your portion control (measure everything in the beginning...guaranteed it will get easier) and walk, dance or do any exercise you enjoy (start with 10 minutes a day or several times a day and add to it as you are able or have time). Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily (guaranteed to work if you use them consistently and honestly). Pick one thing to change...one thing at a time. Don't try to change to many things at once as that can be very overwhelming. Just try to take one step, one minute, one hour, one day, one week at a time. They honestly will all add up to the bigger numbers. These tips will definitely help in lowering your numbers and increasing your ability to enjoy life. Don't expect miracles right away...this is a lifestyle change not a diet. You will be much healthier in the long run. Post any concerns, comments or questions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
    Start each day with a positive thought just for that day. Reading and reflecting on an inspirational thought or message before you start your day can put you in a positive frame of mind.
    Your thoughts determine whether you have a good day or a bad day. Fill your mind with positive ideas, suggestions, and thoughts. You will find it will change your attitude and changing your attitude can change your life.
    Sometimes just reading an inspirational quote or a short paragraph helps one see the positive in a situation. Sometimes as your day progresses you just need to take a break...Take a mental break and read or think about a message of inspiration.
    Never underestimate your power to change and improve! You are a good person, with wonderful qualities, and you can reach your goals!
    If I can be of any help to you, please let me know with a spark mail or a comment on my page. I am here for you.
    God bless you on your journey to a healthier you.
