    When you’ve eaten too much and you can’t write it down,
    And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
    When you want to give up just because you gave in,
    And forget all about being healthy and thin.
    So What! You went over your syns a bit,
    It’s your next move that counts... So don’t you quit!
    It’s a moment of truth, it’s an attitude change.
    It’s a learning the skills to get back in your range.
    It’s telling yourself, “you’ve done great up till now.
    You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow.”
    It’s part of your journey towards reaching your goal.
    You’re still gonna make it, just stay in control.
    To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
    If you summon the will to get back in the race.
    But, often the strugglers, when losing their grip,
    Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
    And learn too late when the damage is done,
    That the race wasn’t over... they still could have won.
    Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
    But facing each challenge will help you grow.
    Success is failure turned inside out,
    The silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
    When you’re pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
    If you bite it, you write it... But don’t you quit!!

    Just seen this on fb, and never seen it before, thought it was great! Have a good weekend everyone

    oooo found it here it is ..........
    Only One Pound
    Hello, do you know me?
    If you don't you should. I'm a pound of fat, and I'm the happiest pound of fat that you would ever want to meet.
    Want to know why? It's because no one ever wants to lose me;
    I'm Only One Pound, just a pound.
    Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds or fifteen pounds, but never only one,
    so I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
    Then I add to myself ever so slyly so that you never seem to notice it, that is until I've grown to ten, twenty or even more pounds in weight.
    Yes, it's fun being Only One Pound of fat, left to do as I please.
    So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying "Oh, I only lost one pound."
    ( as if that were such a terrible thing!)
    For you see, if you do this you'll encourage others to keep me around because they will think I'm not worth losing.
    And I love being around you -
    your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you.
    Happy Days!! After all, I'm Only One Pound of fat!!!
