Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up.

SparkPeople's Comments

It's easy to make excuses not to exercise or to eat junk food. But remember what happens when you overcome those excuses: You get closer to a happier, healthier, fitter you. A year from now, do you want to be in the same place, or do you want to be able to look back on how far you've come? Every time you overcome an excuse, you're one step closer to your goal!

important fo me to also remember that stopping to rest if I am tired, or if I just need a little break, is not giving up! If you feel like giving up, maybe the first thought might be to take a pause, then, when better rested, resume your new better path

I keep thinking that somehow the next time I try it will be different, easier. It won't. I will have to ultimately face the same issues about food addiction. I need to be willing to change, truly change who I am and how I relate to food, and find a better way to find comfort. The only way out is through.

This quote is for me. You can tell by my SP posts that I've started over and over and over ... and OVER so many times. When I do get near my goal I feel so AWESOME and then within days I totally mess up and just quit. Make excuses after excuses but I'm done with that. I have to get healthy...not skinny...but healthy! I want to get off these blood pressure pills (again). I want to get out of double digit sized clothes. I want to bend over and tie my shoes without getting a cramp. I'm printing this quote for my desk, my home office and my car!! Keep me motivated to move forward!!!

I start over and over and over. Each time I tell myself it's better to start over than to quit altogether but the real truth is that starting over and over just means I cover the same ground over and over. Forward progress is rarely made when starting over and over.

I like this - "Every time you overcome an excuse, you're one step closer to your goal!" I need to post this in every room I go into during the day.
