I am plodding away at this weight loss journey and going uphill instead of down. I keep gaining weight because of the IBS and it is very frustrating to say the least. If it were not for the support of all my Spark friends and my daughter I might quit. i Know that is not an option though. I have come too far for that.So often in this world we have the mentality that only a few people will reach the top. Only a few will become winners and the rest of us will be losers and fall as Abba's song title states. But is that really true?
Are we failures because we cannot lose the weight like other people can? Are we losers if we cannot exercise like fiends? No we are only losers if we give up the fight. If we say it is no use and we just go back to eating the way we did before. Yes I have had some bad weeks but I will not give up. I will drink more water and use my powder so I do not lose food. I will exercise when i can. I will eat less when I have days of less intense exercise. And I will learn to eat sweets with meals instead of for snacks.
Little by little, one day at a time and one pound at a time. I will tell myself I can do this and I will not compare myself to some skinny twig on television or real life. I am different than anyone else and need to remember that.
