Just Don’t Give Up!

I saw this saying today and it really struck a chord! It is so easy to give up and much tougher to see the light at the end of the tunnel and stay on track.
Months ago I would think “Well, I’ve lost 25 pounds, but I still have 65 to go” and think of excuses to not carry on. But I persevered and kept going and today I’m proud to say I’ve lost 67 pounds and ONLY have 23 pounds to go! Don’t make excuses! Don’t give up! You are 1 pound closer to your goal and tomorrow you’ll be even closer!

  1. You are spot on my friend! SPOT on. That is the most common reason for giving up. I have said that for years (not that I listened mind you!).

  2. Great advice! And so true. When I started out I was a bit freaked out with the idea of having to lose 50% of my body weight. Now that I am 85 pounds into that journey, I look back and realize how far I’ve come. What helped my out was to break that journey into smaller goals and look forward to that goal, not the ultimate goal.

    • Russell! What an awesome accomplishment! This is exactly how I have done it, little goals of 5 pounds by my birthday, 5 more by New Years, etc. Makes it a lot easier AND rewarding when you meet them!
