I Will Not Fail

I have been in a bit of a funk again, mainly with my food. My exercise has been great and I've seen some wonderful non-scale victories in the realm of my fitness levels; but it seems I'm not being so careful with my food.

This is driving me nuts and I'm ready for it to end.

So, today I happen to pop on over to Steve's blog at Log My Loss and he posted this great motivation for Monday on getting out of the funk. I suggest you take a minute and check it out here if you're fighting a road block or funk in your weightloss journey, or in any area of your life for that matter.

One thing he said was for us to repeat to ourselves:

I am worth it.
I will not quit.
I will not fail.

I could print this out and stick it on my mirror to look at every day. I do struggle with feeling like I'm not worth it and being afraid that I will fail.

Yet, as I've said before, deep down I know that I refuse to quit and thus I can not fail. Along the way I am learning that I am worth it also.

So, I will keep doing what I know to do. I will push myself to keep an extra eye on my food portions, curb the sweets and high fats, drink my water and make sure to get my exercise in. I know that by doing this I will NOT fail in the long run.

I hope you can be encouraged also that you will not fail!

p.s. If you pop on over to Steve's blog..leave him a nice little note. He really has a kind heart and cares so much for others who struggle with weight issues. Thanks, Steve!


  1. His video this morning really was motivational. Funks happen to all of us - even I get into them in maintenance. Maybe not just with weight but with life!!

    I hope that you get your motivation increases every day this week!

  2. The funk must be going around. I have seen quite a bit of it on posts the last few days.
    I like to give myself a fashion show sometimes to lift my spirits. I try on clothes that use to be too tight and now fit perfectly.

  3. Leah, I am so glad this inspired you. I don't know why so many of us are in the funk right now, but we all need to get our tails out of it. Remember, the only way to ensure failure is to quit. Therefore, quitting is not an option. Oh, and by the way, you ARE worth it!

    Thanks for the link back to Motivation for Monday.
