It's easy to lose focus on your goal when you experience bad emotions and feel like it makes no sense to go on longer. before you make the final decision, ask your self a few questions... like
1. Would you be happy if you gave up and your life remained the same? Sometimes all it takes to keep going is to remind yourself of the end goal.
2. What's the worst that can happen if you keep going and don't achieve your goal? Arnold Schwarzenegger once said: "Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength."
Even if you do not achieve your goal, the person you had become when striving to reach it was probably more than worth it.
3. How would it feel to tell other people why you gave up? Would you be happy telling your friend you gave up because you prefer watching TV to becoming a healthier person?
4. What would you tell your closest friend if you traded places with her? Would you tell her to throw in the towel or motivate her to keep pushing...try something different to reach her goals...
