This is where I get serious about getting fit.

Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must but don't you quit.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the strugler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late, when the night slipped
down, how close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems afar.

Like the eagles above the storm you must go.
Stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things go wrong
That you mustn't quit for the victory
He has given you and is right at
your finger tips.
~ Helen Steiner Rice

I pray for God's blessing on my journey so that I will be successful and I hope it can act as an inspiration to others!

    Hi, Welcome to SparkPeople! Thank you for your sweet post about my Chocolate Craving. Chocolate is my drug of choice. Some people think I'm joking when I tell them that but I am totally not. lol

    I read your caption under your picture by the swing. I can totally understand that. I just took pictures of me to use as before pictures and was shocked to see how bad it is. I thought it wasn't quite that bad. . . .um, nope it's bad. From the front I'm ok, but from the side?! Uh Oh. All that to say, YAY YOU!! You've taken the first step towards changing your habits and finding the you that is hiding under all the fluff.

    May I encourage you to track your food? It's making an enourmous difference for me. You have freedom and accountability with it. I can still have chocolate just not in excess. This is something you can literally live with and enjoy food and life still. You are worth it.

    I've only been here a couple of weeks but if you have any questions I'd be happy to try to answer them! Have a great day!
