I lost 1 pound this week. I certainly didn't do very well with my recording of food and exercise.I did go to Curves 3 times last week, but I didn't do well with the eating part of it. I have to tell you I was really bummed when there wasn't a better loss last week. I did a program at TOPS tonight "Don't Quit" I think I did it more for me, but everyone really enjoyed it. I also read my Friend Joanne's story. She just became a KOPS for the last time. A KOPS is someone who has reached their goal and is working to maintain that loss. I am so proud of her as it hasn't been an easy journey for her. I have asked her for permission to share it on this blog, so I am waiting to hear back from her. I will record the poem I read to my group before we closed the meaning.
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debt is high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must-but don't you quit.
Life is queer with it's twists and turns,
And many a failure turns about;
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow-
You might succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than,
it seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup.
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out-
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt-
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.
Have a good evening
