  • Just what I needed to read today!!!
  • Fall down seven times...stand up eight!
  • I have been on this plateau for over a year!!!! Doctor says that is ok, but to me, with the effort I am putting in it is definitely NOT OK! The frustration level is high yet I have tried to maintain my focus. It may be time to make some drastic changes. I will reflect on that and see what I can do. This is my one step back, time to take two steps forward!!
  • Love the quote! Interesting article!
  • Trying hard not to be my own worst critic...and enemy!
  • This helps me greatly! I lost 92 pounds and in the past year have gained back 45. So the reality is I have learned some wonderful things and established many great habits. So, this helps me re-evaluate and just move forward, after all, God gave me a new day!
  • That was a timely article. Haven't had a great week of results and it was good to get some perspective.
  • Well, I did lose enough weight to help me be at my optimal size using SparkPeople several years ago, but now I'm back to the original size that I was when I first started on SparkPeople. #facepalm Oops. But, I'm not going to feel bad. I've done it before and I know I can do it again.
  • I had been staring at this article for weeks. It was added to my daily tabs that open every day my browser was clicked, so it was always before me, waiting for me to actually read it. Today I did, and I am glad. Feel a little more encouraged about my flaws.
  • I just can't seem to lose. I have been at the same weight for two weeks. I lost some at first but it has stopped. I have begun to do more exercise and I am not cheating on my diet. no more than 1200 calories a day . anyone got any idea what I can do to get going again. I want to just quit but I can not do that.
    Great article if I may add (for me) daily I give may all to God, and at the end of the day I leave everything with God. because His word tells me in Philippians 4:13 "I can do all this through him who gives me strength." and when I feel I have not reach the mark I hold true to God's word with: Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
    Now once again this is me, but maybe just maybe someone out there it is them too... :)
  • I must remember to keepi my solid foundation and never give up!
  • Good morning Liz, well written information. I have found at this point in time, I am more conscientious about what I eat at each meal and snacking. Do I have the proper ingredients for protein, fats, carbs, etc. I am trying not to fly by the seat of my pants when I go out with friends. Skip the fries and replace with a salad. I am really enjoying my food groups and exercising more often. My energy level has also increased.
    very inspirational. So glad to have found this page on how to deal with setbacks. I am finding Spark People has so many helps that I have not used before.
  • The last sentence was a bit of an over-simplification: Wanting it badly and working very hard to achieve it are not absolutes; we humans are very complex. Up to that point, I found the article to be very encouraging. Thank you for posting it.
