A little weight watcher poem

When you have eaten too much and cant 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
its your next move that counts.... so don’t you quit.

It’s a monment of truth, its an attitude change,
Its learning the skills to get you back in the game.
Its telling yourself, “You’ve done great until now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow.”
Its part of the 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 throws in the towel and continues to slip.
And learn too late after the damage is done,
that the race wasn’t over and they still could have won.

Lifestyle changes can be awarkard 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 are pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit.
If you bite it you write it...
And don’t you quit.

Hi, Bobbie,

Thank you so much for stopping by. I didn't know that you married late in life, like me. Is that your picture on the blog on the right? If so, you look really young.

Have a great day!
