Can Wanting To Give Up Be A Great Opportunity?

Why Wanting To Quit Might Identify A Moment When You Can Break Through

The only way that you fail at losing weight - or anything in life - is by giving up. This is something that luckily has become part of our culture. It is a pervasive idea. But the most interesting thing is not that you only fail when you quit. What is interesting is that at the moment you want to quit, the moment the pain has become too great, that is the moment that usually means you are close to a breakthrough.

It's easy to give up when you hit a plateau. It's easy to give up when you've had a bad weekend of eating and hanging out on the sofa. But what happens is devastating; all the work that you put in to lose 5 pounds, after you go off track takes weeks, sometimes months, just to get back to that original 5 pound loss.

Plateaus don't mean it is time to give up; they mean it is time to change your approach. Overeating all weekend isn't a sign to bail; it's a sign to examine what situation brought about that trigger, to learn and figure out ways to cope next time. Every situation is a chance to learn how to cope and how to use those skills in other areas that are as important as your weight loss and your health. The last 5% of every journey is usually the hardest. Don't ever, ever, ever give up. Your family needs you. Your friends need you. You are too important to give up on. Re-read your reason for why you're doing this in the first place and just keep on going.
