Okay-I'm posting this again here now so we can see it again.
Reading this really does help me!
Print this if you can and hang it where you can read it from time to time. I have gotton in the habbit of reading it everyday.
I found it on somebody's weight loss site awhile back, not sure which one.
I did NOT write this.
When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down
and 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".
It's 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 and they still could have won.
Life-style change can be akward and slow
But facing each challenge will help you to grow;
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint in the cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit;
If you bite it, write it...But don't you quit!
