Life dealt me a huge defeat - one that can't be changed. I wanted to completely give up and still have that urge. As long as I choose to live there is hope for feeling better. Maybe this sadness won't last forever. But I think it will. Grief is a terrible companion.

With my weight loss, I gave up a few times but I made myself push on towards my goal and I made it.

I am having some medical issues and need to get checked out. Don't want to, but feel I need to.__

LOVE THIS! Everyone falls off the wagon sometimes, that's okay! We are human and make mistakes. Pick your booty back up and get to it!

Excellent quote. Plus one I really needed today. Pick yourself up and dust yourself off.

this reminds me of my favourite quote in marathoning....

pain is temporary..... pride is forever

(and when you're running a marathon, you do need to remind yourself of this a number of times :-)

You have to get back up when you are knocked down!

This is so true... Simple to understand... To the point.... If you are defeated in something, it is just one battle... But, if you give up, it is the war!.... If you fall down, get up, brush yourself off, and, try again.. Just like a baby trying to learn to walk.. If you fall, get up and try, try, try again....
