I read a lot on the forums about so
many who tried Atkins, lost a bunch of weight, got off of it and
regained the weight back if not more. I was one of those people who
tried Atkins, lost some weight and gained it back as well. I did that
a bunch of times over the years. It's tough, you think you're doing
great, feeling better then all of the sudden those old habits come
creeping back or you get stressed out over something and run for the
fridge. I know all about it to well but back in 2008 I finally
figured it out and so far lost 301 lbs and so can you as long as you
don't give up on yourself.
If you have fallen off several times do
not worry just remember what you did wrong and correct it. The most
important thing is to keep going no matter what. This is not an
excuse or even a reason to give up so easily. Just keep pushing
yourself until you get it right, you will learn a lot about yourself
and at the same time make yourself a more stronger and wiser person.
We are all human and we do make
mistakes, it's in our nature. So don't say, “Oh I messed up,
guess this doesn't work for me.” or “ I just had a bad day
all I want to do is eat and sleep.” You got to get up and keep
fighting. Find something to fight for, your health, your well being
or something that will make you stand up and realize,”Hey, I may
have messed up but I'm going to keep going no matter what.”
That movie Network comes to mind, if you don't know what that is,
look it up on youtube.
I remember a motivational speaker I use
to watch on PBS years ago, I believe his name was Les Brown. I truly
like what he had to say but one thing he said has always been stuck
in my mind for years. “If you can look up, you can get up.” So
don't give up, just remember your mistakes, correct them and keep
fighting the good fight.
greatest weakness lies in giving up, the most certain way to succeed
is always to try just one more time.” ~ Thomas Edison
