If you don’t try to get your weight under control, you never will. That’s a pretty simple fact that rings true for a lot of things. If you don’t save money, you won’t. If you don’t apply for a job, it’s likely that you will never get it. I could go on and on, but I’ll spare you the boredom!
I’ll be honest with you. Trying to lose weight was a job for me when I weighed 250 to 300 pounds. It felt like a lot of work to watch what I ate, try to figure out what I should eat when I was going out, and plan on exercise.
Honestly, there were a lot of times when I either gave up completely or considered giving up. But I kept trying.
I know a lot of people who literally or figuratively throw their hands up in the air and say that they aren’t even going to try anymore. “What’s the point?” they tell me. “I’m never going to get this weight off.”
True fact. If you don’t try, you will never get the weight off.
So, if you are in the midst of a weight-loss identify crisis, considering giving up on your efforts to get off the obesity carousel, don’t. There – I said it. Don’t give up. Sure, things may not be going perfectly right now, but giving up is going to ensure that things will continue to go downhill.
I often think about where I would be if I had completely given up. I could have ended up having to use one of these, not because I was ill or needed it, but because of my weight.
I wouldn’t be able to easily run, play basketball in the driveway or even get in and out of my high van without a lot of difficulty, if I hadn’t just tried one more time.
Where are you today? Are you ever tempted to give up, and what keeps you going? Diane
