In today's spark e-mail I read the article that said your not a failure unless you quit....
I remember reading this when I first started with SparkPeople....It was an eye opener way back then and a good remainder today ....

We all have times when we think "HOW CAN I DO THIS"
In 2006 I weighed 347 pounds, when that fact sunk in my brain, I could not stop crying, OMG I thought how did this happen to me, how did I let myself get this way...what was I thinking....now 4+ years later I know the answer, I ate junk food and did not exercise, I let food and my oral pleasures take over my life, I was so emotionally unhappy and stressed and food was the easiest thing to reach for....so when I started Sparkpeople there were many of days when I said how can I go loose over 200 pounds, but I learned ways to eat healthy and to exercise, and to never give up no matter what.....I learned to focus on today and the issues for this day, I learned to plan my meals and my exercise.....I found friends who understood and who supported me, who told me I could do it even when I did not believe it.....I never gave up, sure I had days when I did not think this would work.. I had days when I felt defeated but never ever did I give up......I read all the sparkpeople articles, I joined teams and I searched for support, I started to give people support, I started to give them the encouragement that was given to me .....I learned that it helps me, to help others.....
I learned that each day might not be the best but tomorrow is a new day a new chance to do it better, a clean slate, I learned I am not a failure because I had a bad day or I slipped over my calories.....I learned to forgive myself, I learned to love myself no matter what that darn scale says......

WOW I SURE HAVE LEARNED A LOT.....AND BEST PART I'M STILL LEARNING AND THANKS TO ALL OF YOU AT SPARKPEOPLE I AM NOT A FAILURE...
I'D LOVE TO GIVE YOU ALL A BIG HUG FOR SAVING MY LIFE.

Have a healthy Wednesday
