Never Give Up!

By Staci

Never give up! You are worth the fight! Keep fighting! This is for you! You’ve come so far, keep going! You can do it! You are beautiful! You are worth it! You are not a quitter! Never give up! Keep fighting! It WILL be worth it!

Some days I have the fight in me to keep going. Some days I have to remind myself why I’m fighting. Why am I working so hard to lose weight? Why am I eating a somewhat restrictive diet? Why can’t I indulge in that birthday cake at a party? Why can’t I eat more than 1 cookie, they’re my favorite?

Why? Because I am worth it. I want to be healthy and live a nice long life with the love of my life and my family. I want to set an example for my children that eating healthy is the way to go. Because I don’t like the way I feel when I indulge in the “restricted” foods.

Last night I had a “I’m giving up” moment. I looked at the calendar of my weight loss and realized I only lost less than a pound for the whole month. My weight from April 1st through April 30th there was only .8 of a pound change. That’s it! I was very disappointed in myself. Now, I did lose weight and gained some throughout the month.

April was a bad month for me. I ate waaayyy tooo many cheat meals. Had a couple of cheat weekends too. Those were killer. Good times with friends and family but terrible for my waistline. That is because I lacked self-control.

This coming weekend will be another bad weekend. We will be celebrating our birthdays with a dinner out and a day at the beach. I can’t wait for our dinner out. I have been wanting to go to this restaurant forever. It is the Melting Pot. A fondue restaurant. Yumm. Insert drool here. I am so excited. And, yes we are going to have the chocolate fondue as well.

I am going to pack foods to eat while at the coast so I can try and stay on track. I know we are planning on eating out for dinner on Saturday as well at our favorite restaurant when we go to the coast. Mo’s clam chowder is delicious. So I have to plan for that as well and get back on track as soon as possible. Then Sunday we were invited to go out to dinner for my brother’s birthday. We are only 1 day apart and 10 years, but who’s counting? Not sure we will go, but that is another meal. So a lot going on this weekend.

With all that is happening and the lack of weight lose for April, it can be discouraging. I almost want to give up. Then I remember that this is for me. I am the reason I am working this hard. I am worth the fight. So I gave myself a pep talk this morning and am back at it again.

I’m never giving up. I will reach my goal and be where I want to be. I am doing this for me. I am worth it!
