Encouragement Quote: Don’t Give Up! – Frugal Novice

Encouragement Quote: Don’t Give Up!


I’ve been losing weight since the start of the year – almost 25 pounds so far. I made the clichéd resolution to get healthier, but unlike other years I’ve been successful this time around. I’ve found a free app online to track what I’m eating, and a workout DVD that I actually enjoy (while simultaneously hating it sometimes – makes total sense, right?). My husband has been so supportive, working out with me and letting me ramble on about the calorie count of various foods.

What it all boils down to, though, is mindset. In previous weight-loss attempts I would use mistakes as an excuse to give up altogether. I mean, I’d already screwed up, right?

Now I get it. Mistakes happen, but they don’t have to shape your journey – or stop it. I hope this quote below helps encourage you with any change you’re wanting to make in your life, whether it’s losing weight, quitting smoking, making it through college, or whatever your personal challenge is. You’ve got this. Hang on to those eggs. 

If you drop one egg, you don't throw the other eleven on the floor. We ALL make mistakes. Don't let one slip-up derail you completely! Hang on to those other eggs.

    That’s an awesome way of looking at weight loss. I began a weight loss journey in January using Nutrisystem but my counselor really drop the ball on me and I gave up. She was absolutely no help at all and all I really needed was someone to help motivate me and help get me on the right track with meals.

    I really have a hard time with this! A good example is when I eat healthier up to a vacation. Then vacation comes and I eat everything under the sun.

    That is so true! One bad event and you can’t think your life is over. I try and look on the bright side always, even if it’s just knowing that it’ll pass. Or the stress is just too much!
