It’s something we all fall victim to, often over and over again (I certainly am!). Its the fact that you can go really, really well on your lifestyle and healthy eating habit change, and then comes the one day (or night, in my case!) where you cave in to temptation and just completely bust it. Poooof – you’ve failed again (or so you think)!
And more often than not, that’s the time when you say to yourself – I’ve stuffed it now, I have failed again, it’s no use, I can’t do this. I might as well go all the way and gorge now! Another failure. Time and time again.
Well, you know what, whatever you do, don’t quit!! Quitting is the worst thing you can do. It’s like if you have fallen down, the most important thing is to get up again and get going! Keep at it! It’s a matter of fact that you have only failed when you stop trying.
I would like you to have a read through this poem. I found it online on the Health Forum, and it’s fantastic. I believe it puts us all back on the spot and tells us exactly what we should be doing. So let’s!!!!
When you’ve eaten too much and you can’t write it down,
when 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.”
I’ts part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You’re still going to 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 losing 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 bring, just refuse to submit.
If you bite it, you write it…But don’t you quit!
Please let me know what you think. I admit, I have been very, very negligent with approving my comments here on my blog (currently there are 390 awaiting approval, dating back more than 1/2 year shame on me) but trust me, I am into it and will get there eventually – I am not a quitter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😉
Also, on a demure note, I have crept back up to 82 kgs over the past few months and have started on BodyTrim again – which is very very similar to The Diet Solution Program and Pure Fat Burning Fuel from Isabel De Los Rios. And once again, in the first week I am already down 2 kg (and that’s “only”, because I still have a glass of wine in the evenings, plus usually a piece of chocolate for all my hard work during the day).
Anyway, enough rambling, let me know your thoughts about the poem, and I will get around to approve your comments ASAP, promise!
