Giving Up

I just read a post about quitting and how we need to make sure that today is NOT that day for quitting.

I've been fighting this battle for a long time and I have truly seen some good times and bad times.  I get depressed a lot.  Though I'm pretty good about hiding it. Sometimes I really feel like quitting would be easier.

Would it?  Really?

Quitting would be like saying I am happy with how I look and how I feel. Quitting would be like saying I can't do any better than this.  Quitting would be like not caring about myself.  Or my family.  Because they are affected by this too.

Quitting would make me more depressed and angry with myself because I would have failed. How can I control anything if I can't control what I put in my mouth? 

I'm not quitting.  Not today. Not ever. I can't. I won't.

Today I did good. I avoided the unnecessary sweets. For some reason that seems to be my downfall lately.  I ate about 1400 calories.  Lots of water.  I'm so not quitting.

  4. Quitting means not caring about the fact that you are a beautiful, wonderful vital human being who has a lot to offer to the world around you.

    Never, ever, quit.

  6. I am not quitting, either. It IS hard. Every day. But I still remember the way I felt physically and mentally when I started this new lifestyle, and it was not good. Just losing a few pounds can make a huge difference in self-esteem. No, I'm not quitting. Ever.
