Don’t Stop Trying to Lose Weight
It looks like I have to use Team One Tickets to find a couple more tickets.
We’re going to the championship game on December 4th.
After trying year after year for countless decades and living with failure, my team was finally able to do something they’ve never been able to do: win a division championship. I was sitting on the front row, thanks to Team One Tickets, and was able to watch the surreal moment happen in person. I even slapped hands with some of the players after the amazing win Saturday night.
I’m no stranger to failure. Or, thankfully, ultimate success.
I’ve had countless failed weight loss attempts. I’ve relied on fad diets, weight loss pills, gimmick weight loss machines, meal plans, you name it; if someone sells it, I’ve bought it to “cure” me. I’m sure you have, as well. I was tired of trying to lose weight. I’m sure you are, as well.
I could’ve quit. Quitting can and would have killed me, though.
People talk a lot about yo-yo dieting like it’s a bad thing. Well, you’re right, it’d be fantastic if you could try to lose weight and do it while keeping it off on the first attempt — but that’s not very likely. In fact, I’d dare say it’s next to impossible. If it came between continuously trying to lose weight and save our lives and never trying, I’d rather continuously try and fail.
Because one day, with enough failures, we learn how not to fail.
We learn how to succeed.
