Don't Quit ! A #WeightWatchers Poem To Help Keep You On Track #diet #encouragement

With the holidays coming up this week, I know a lot of people may want to indulge a little and that is OK.  Just remember that you are human and it's OK to sometimes go overboard.  The key is to get back on track the next day.

When I was at my meeting this week, my leader Erica read a poem to us that was really encouraging and helped put things in perspective.  You see, even though this is a journey, you have to remember there is a destination ahead.  Even if you take things in small steps, like I do, the important thing is to not forget the reason you started this journey to begin with.

Here is the poem that was read to us at our meeting.  Feel free to print it out and stick it on your fridge or anywhere that you can read it, when you feel like giving up.

Believe in yourself. You can do it.  Don't Quit!!

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 points just a bit,
It’s your next move that counts…So don’t you dare 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.”
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, so often the strugglers, 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 to grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint in a gray cloud of doubt.
When you’re pushed to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it…But don’t you dare quit!
