An Angel named Nana

So I was feeling kind of junky the last week and though I bought new food and was getting hyped up I still needed another little push. Well My Nana is the cutest thing of life and today I opened the mail to find something for me! In it was this poem:

Don't Quit
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 points 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 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 toward 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 and they still could of won.

Life-style change can be akward and slow
But facing each challenge will help you to grow;
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint in the 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!

It really made my day and remotivated me. And I plan on sharing it at my next Weight Watcher meeting! I love my Nana :)

And as promised, here are the pictures! I'm shocked I am posting these horrid images but this is how much I do for all of you!

But like the poem says, my next step is the one that counts.

  2. I love your Nana! LOVE HER LOVE HER LOVE HER! That's just way too cute. You're so lucky to have such a wonderful person in your life (and she's lucky to have you!).

    Like she said, Don't Quit!

    And those are NOT horrid pictures. How dare you say that about my dear friend. I think you're cute as a button. :)
