Start Over

If you have started out in pursuit of your goal
And you have really tried with your heart and your soul,
But somehow things got out of control
START OVER.

When you have tried your best to do what you should
And you thought this time that you surely would,
But once again, you did not do good
START OVER.

When you have worked so hard to follow a dieters way
And you fought to win a victory each day.
But one more time you went astray
START OVER.

When you have tried so hard to yourself to be true
And do the things that you know you should do,
But once again you failed to come through
START OVER.

When the road to success seemed much too long
And each temptation was oh so strong
And once again you gave in to wrong
START OVER.

When you have told your friends what you planned to do
And trusted them to help you through
But soon discovered it is up to you
START OVER.

When you know you must be physically fit,
But your hope seems gone and you are stuck in a pit
That is not the time for you to quit
START OVER.

When the week seems long and successes few
And at weigh in time you are feeling blue,
Remember tomorrow is just for you
START OVER.

To start again means a victory has been won
And starting over again means a race well run
And starting over again proves it can be done
So do not just sit there
START OVER.

What a fantastic poem! Today I've seen an awful lot of talk about starting over from various FS members, so it's very timely too! Very inspirational indeed Smile

I love this, Evelyn! It is perfect for all of us.
If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.
