Don't Quit!

Friday, September 05, 2014

Digging through my piles of paper and trying to organize them today I came across this poem. I do not know who is responsible for it so I cannot give credit to them, but just understand that I did not write it.

Don't Quit Trying

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 calories a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
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 gonna 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 struggle's when loosing your 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...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
But facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!

A New Goal

Friday, August 01, 2014

I am going to be working on several new things healthwise. I have high blood pressure, pre-diabetes and high triglycerides all of which can be controlled with a healthy diet. I am going to focus on these areas as well as my weight loss.


A New Day

Friday, July 25, 2014

Today is the beginning of a new day for me. I have finally reached the point that I realize that I am not going to lose my weight like I used to when I was young. So I am going to accept each day as the one that I have to incorporate healthy eating and exercise in and I will focus only on today. Let tomorrow take care of itself. I feel better than I have in a long time because I am eating and exercising right whether I lose weight or not. If I do lose that will be a big reward for all of my efforts, but if I do not I will still be healthy!

My short term goals at this time are to remain on track with my eating and exercising.
T0 stay focused on what I am doing. To lose at least 8 pounds in August.

To lose 24 lbs. in the next 3 months.

To get into the 100's.

Long term goal is to lose to my goal weight of 145. When I get there I will reevaluate whether I need to go further or stop there.

My biggest goal is to remain healthy and not have another stroke even a small one like I had in 2008. I plan to be around at least to my 90's and see at least one of my great great grandchildren.

Drink Your Water Every Day

Saturday, July 20, 2013

I was never a water drinker, but now I drink 4 20 oz. bottles of water every day. I still am able to enjoy decaf unsweetened coffee and green tea, v8 juice and milk as well.

Drinking water not only does all that the coaches tell us it does, it also helps me to flush the excess fluids out of my system that cause me to swell up even though my Dr. has me on fluid pills.

Come on and join me. If I can do it so can all of you!
