Default Stopping to Regroup

I found that stopping when I've made enough progress, like a goal. Though I try my best to not slip, I tend to think more when I don't build too much pressure on myself. Has this technique worked for you too?

Welcome, Dan!

Yes, I know what you mean. I feel great every five pounds, and when I move down to the next 10 (ie: 180...170), I feel that I've really accomplished something.

I love this poem...

ďAutobiography in Five Short ChaptersĒ

Portia Nelson

I

I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lostÖ I am helpless.
It isnít my fault.
It takes me forever to find a way out.

II.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I donít see it.
I fall in again.
I canít believe I am in the same place
But, it isnít my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

III.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall inÖ itís a habit.
My eyes are open
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

IV.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

V.

I walk down another street.



Hope it helps inspire you folks too :-D

So, decided I need to quit buying raspberries as I eat carton after carton of them. Also, every evening I am defeated and eat eat eat which keeps me from making a bit more progress, which I want to do. I feel so good that I have been able to maintain my 18 pounds so far bu ned a bit more progress. I want to stay with this site. it helps. When someone tells me how much wt they have put on it makes me feel so good that I haven't yet. Reminding myself every day what I am supposed to be doing and why is so important. Yea oa.

Too Cuddly - Who wrote that? That's a great poem!!

Here's my favorite motivational quotes:
"Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever. That surrender, even the smallest act of giving up, stays with me. So when I feel like quitting, I ask myself, which would I rather live with?"

"I have not failed 1000 times, I have successfully found 1000 ways on how to NOT make a light bulb"

"Nothing is IMPOSSIBLE. The word itself says "I'M POSSIBLE."

"A round man cannot be expected to fit in a square hole right away. He must have time to modify his shape."

"Your day is every day!"

Just found this one today on the back of my brother's graduation program handout:
"Don't tell me the sky is the limit when there are foot prints on the moon."

Lightbulb Goodbye Chubby , I love one of your quotes!

"Don't give up what you want most for what you want now". Repeating this in my head will surely give me strength when I am craving that candy or cookie! Thanks for the inspiration.

Default Don't you just love a quote that reveals itself to you when you need it the most???

Your mistakes do not define you now; they tell you who you're not.- 3 Doors Down

also inspiring to me from the same is:

You hide behind your walls of "maybe" and "nevers", forgetting that there's something more than just "knowing better".

If you're afraid to fly then I guess you never will.

You've got to live this life your given like it's the only one you've got!

Some very inspiring quotes here!

My sister used to be an athletic trainer for a college football team. Just above the team's entrance leading onto the field there was this and I have never forgotten it - it is so true:

"If you always do what you've always done, you will always get what you've always gotten."

I am not sure who said that, but it really made an impact on me.
