Not a Quitter

First, I would like to say hello to all of my new followers! I love your comments! Keep them coming! And I would also like to say thanks to all of my longtime followers who give me such joy when I read their blogs. You guys have really helped me through this.

I have always been a quitter. In elementry shool I did choir and quit. I did girls scouts. Quit. I did softball. Quit. I did basketball. Quit. Track. Quit. Piano lessons. Quit. Get the picture? The only thing I didn't ever quit was band. I played the Oboe for 7 years. I wasn't very good at it. I could play the music just fine, but I wasn't the best. So, why did I quit everything else and not band you ask? It was because I had fun when I was doing it, and all of my friends were there with me.

What does this have to do with weightloss? If you don't enjoy doing something, you aren't going to finish it. You need to make sure that you are making your diet and exercise fun. If you look at squash (yucky) and think that you can't diet if this is what you have to eat, you will quit. Just don't eat it and find something you will! If you start the Couch to 5k program and hate running, then find something else! Try water aerobics or a dance class! If you aren't happy, then you will quit. Also, if you don't have positive people around you, you will quit. That is why I wanted to start this blog. I knew that I needed positive people who are going through the same thing as me. I have teachers at my school who are so positive about my journey that it bring tears to my eyes.

Bottom Line is: If you aren't happy, you won't finish. So find something that makes you journey fun and stick with it!

Confession: I can't get rid of my chocolate craving!! Also, I looked at the scale. Will post results at the end of the month.

Cheer: I woke up early this morning to run. Week 4 Day 2 complete!!


  1. This is so true! I'm glad you are not quitting. BY the way you aren't a quitter anymore.


  2. WOOT WOOT! Nice shout out for Water Aerobics!!! I, too, am glad you are not quitting. I was telling my mom last night how reading other people's blogs have kept me more accountable for what I am doing. Chocolate Craving be damned! You are better than that stupid chocolate craving!!!

  3. honest post. my bottom line: "Do something"

  4. AHHHH fellow Band Nerd! I quit everything too but band! It was for the same reason I had fun doing it. I can't say I am as positive as I should be about this diet but your blog helps me though each day!

  5. Congrats on finishing what you started! This is a great challenge and I'm proud of you!!!


Show me some love!! Or kick my butt!!
