Don't Quit! If you've just had an 'oops' moment, read this!

Postby zeedeveelgirl » Thu Nov 01, 2007 9:58 pm

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
when 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 points a bit.
It's your next move that counts...So Don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
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."
I'ts part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still going to 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 struggler's, when losing their 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 bring, just refuse to submit.
If you bite it, you write it...But don't you quit!

Kate - it's a sticky so that it stays at the top of the forum and people see it when they go to post about how terrible they feel about eating something bad/not exercising etc etc!

Misstoodles - it's great, hey? I got it from another forum! Has a very positive message :)

That's a pretty good message.

I'm sure all of us here have fallen into the trap of "oh well, I've screwed up now, no point" and then eaten about a million more calories! When if we just stopped after the original stuff-up, we wouldn't have been so bad!

Definitely! If it can help stop people from giving up once they've made just 1 mistake, its worth having it up there to read! Glad you guys agree :) :)

I knew I've read sumthin like this somewhere. Here's the other version:
Don't Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the 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.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow -
You might succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler 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;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

- Unknown -


But you know. I LIKE THE ONE YOU POSTED BETTER! Hahahahahahaha! It just fits into what we're doing.

Both poems are awesome. Just what I needed a.t.m. Bad, bad cake...
