Discouragement While Dieting

Written by 

How did your dieting efforts go this past weekend? They always seem to be the hardest on those days. Do you ever get discouraged when you don't do as well as you'd like? Do you even give up because you get discouraged? I came across this short story the other day and thought it might be inspiring for the times when you just might be discouraged with your weight loss efforts. (Author unknown.)

"If you've invested enough effort and energy to get discouraged, you're well on your way to success. Discouragement is a certain weigh station on the road to any worthwhile achievement. If you know and care enough to be discouraged, you've made considerable progress. Learn what the discouragement has to teach you and then continue moving forward. It may seem as though you'll never make it, but in reality you're already there. Discouragement tempers and hardens you; it does not stop you.

"Reflect on your discouragement and you'll discover that it is actually a result of your commitment. You've already invested your time, your effort, maybe even a part of your life. Soon, you'll reap the full reward of that investment. Let discouragement spur you on.

"Motivation is born of desire. The stronger the desire for something, the stronger the motivation. - My thoughts: you need to always and I mean always, focus on your goals! It's just too easy to let life get in your way. Take the time to persue ways to continually keep your focus alive and compelling.

"Endeavor to keep the promises we make to ourselves...My thoughts: if we keep taking our own commitments too lightly and without real thought and intention, they simply will not mean anything. When you say something to yourself make sure you mean it! Make the promise to yourself as strongly as you are making that promise to someone else. You word means nothing otherwise.

"We deserve to be treated with the same love and respect that we would give to others....."

So dieters what do you do when you are discouraged ? What helps you keep going? What helps you your focus!
