Be brave my friends, have courage ...

I have spent the last hour visiting sparkfriends pages and I am seeing so many great people struggling or given up altogether. This makes me sad. Oh, I understand it because I have been there so many times I have lost count but it saddens me just the same.
See, too many times when people fall off track they forget that they can just start all over again. They get stuck on feeling like they failed and that little irritating voice in their head tells them "you can't do it, you can't win" and they believe it. Let's face it, that voice is very convincing.
But do not be deceived, the voice is lying. You can do it. So, okay. You're 300 lbs and you want to be 115 lbs. Maybe you won't make it to 115 but maybe you will make it to 170. Isn't that still better than 300? Progress is progress, no matter how long it takes, no matter how many pounds you shed, it is still progress. Get that voice out of your head and replace it with something like "I will go as far as I can go, it is better than where I am right now".
I want to make it and I want YOU to make it too. We can do this, it might take longer than we hoped, but we can do it. Tell that negative voice to shut up and replace it with something that builds you up and motivates you. YOU are in control!
