Secrets of Success

Giving In Is Not Giving Up



Sometimes i give in. Despite what i want, and knowing how far i still have to go. i eat that cupcake, i buy the candy bar, drink the wine.... but i dont dwell. Dwelling on that one mistake just continues to rip the wound. Instead I praise myself for acknowledging that it wasn't the best thing to do. And i praise myself for making the right decision the next time. Giving in, is never Giving up.

    I needed your comments. I have lost 9 lbs and tonight went and ate 2 HOT DOGS of all the crazy things. Total for the meal way about 700 calories!
    As you said "dwelling on that mistake continues to rip the wound" so it is now done and tomorrow I will just have to be more selective. I am meeting a friend for breakfast but will NOT order the wonderful french toast and all that stuff.
    Thanks much. - by KAYYAK1
