Quitting is not an option

Saturday, September 25, 2010

Everytime I go to a Weight Watcher's meeting and the scales don't budge or as it did today, it only went down .2lbs I feel like giving up on losing weight. But I can't quit. I promised myself that this time was going to be the time I reached my goal. Another reason I can't quit is all the inspiration I have gotten from Sparkpeople. The groups that I post with are amazing. There is so much support, enthusiasm and success there that I would be ashamed to quit.

At my meeting this morning the topic was "Asking for Help". There was lots of discussion in the group and some great ideas on how to get "Help" that I realized I have help all around me. I am very lucky to have a very supportive husband as well. He clipped an article out the of the newspaper today about a journalist who had just lost 22 lbs on Weight Watchers. She wrote about a women's need to feel good about themself and in a comical way about running without that extra fat. He then listened while I showed him how I figured out the WW points in the breakfast we were having and agreed that perhaps we shouldn't have that one any more because it was too high in points. How sweet is that?

How could I every think about quitting when I have this support all around me. No excuses anymore. Back on track!

    GOOD FOR YOU!!! When the going get's tough, the tough GET GOING!! Try stepping up your exercise intensity a little bit, and see if that works. Brie

    Good for you!! Don't forget a 0.2 pound loss is a loss. You didn't put all the pounds on in a week, you can't expect them to fall off that quickly either. You are doing it the slow and sensible way. Keep up the good work!!!
