Day 11- “Never give up”

Sunday, January 26, 2020

In 1998 I lost 45 lbs using fen/fen. I stopped taking it because of concerns it was causing heart problems. In 3 weeks I gained back 30 lbs. I was very discouraged and gave up and decided I would just be fat. Fortunately I had dental problems and lost 10 lbs so I sort of tried, then we had a family wedding so I lost another 20 lbs and a year later another 10 lbs and another 5 lbs a year later. Menopause hit and I gained 8 lbs and stayed there for another 3 years. I finally lost that weight 4 years ago but have been going up and down 6 lbs.
This month I lost that 6 lbs and I am not going to give up and gain it back. I am determined to lose the next 20 lbs in 2020! By God’s grace and power I can do it!

    Thank you for posting this. It has greatly encouraged me. I lost almost 30 pounds last year and still have a ways to go. You are one of the people who encourages me to not give up.

    I remember when I told myself I would rather smoke than be fat. Time can change our thinking and eventually I did give up smoking - and gained weight. My weight has come off similarly to yours - a little at time over the years with some yo-yoing. None the less, WE HAVE NOT GIVEN UP! ! ! By God's grace and the help of our friends here on SP.
