Not Givin' Up

My WW update this week is that I gained 2.0 pounds. I'm not sure how or why, but I did. On the way home I popped in an old Bryan Duncan CD. He is a Christian artist I have liked since I was 11. This song came on and really encouraged me after my bad weigh-in.

Givin' Up Givin' Upby Keith Ward
I've gotta stop kickin' myself around,
Swimmin' in a pool of pity.
I'm gonna pick myself up off the ground
And get back to the nitty gritty.
It's just one step, two steps,
And then I'm back on my way.
Sittin' around has just been gettin' me down
And that's why I just have to say . . .

I'm givin' up givin' up.
I'll never give up again!
I'm givin' up givin' up,
And hangin' on 'til the end.
And I'm givin' up givin' up.
I'll never give up again!
And I'm givin' up givin' up,
And hangin' on 'til the end.

I gotta keep working with what I got,
Wait until the clouds start breakin'.
Instead of sittin' and wishin' for a better lot
Than the one already in the makin'.
It's just one step, two steps,
Strength enough for today.
Workin' it out instead of frettin' about it's
Gonna help to keep me on my way

'Cause I'm givin' up givin' up,
I'll never give up again!
I'm givin' up givin' up
An hangin' on 'til the end.
Givin' up givin' up.
I'll never give up again!
Ooh, I'm givin' up givin' up,
And hangin' on 'til the end.

When it gets too hard to take it,
And I don't think I can make it any longer,
That's when I decide I'm gonna take another stride
And ask the Lord to give me the strength to go on

Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh, give it up!
I'll never give up again!
I say ah (scat singing)
Well, I'm givin' up on givin' up
Woh!
Well, I know it's so sound, it's so simple,
But it's up to me, yeah!
I'm givin' up givin up!
'Cause I know when I do,
You're gonna see me through it again!
I'm gonna pick myself up,
Woh!
'Cause I'm givin' up givin' up,
Oooh!
It's just one step, two steps
'Cause I'm givin' up givin up!
And I'm back on my way again!
All I gotta do is give it up, give it up,
Just one step,
Try another step
And then another step
Ooh, I'm on my way!
Yeah!
And I'm stoppin' kickin' myself around!
Yeah, I'm gonna pick myself up off the ground
I'm gonna give up, na na!
I'm not really givin' up,
I'm just givin up

Melissa, Keep up the good work.. I was on WW. and did great and got off track a couple weeks. But just hope back on the band wagon, you will do great. I'm starting tomorrow eating only 800 calories a day. My friend did that and lost 22 calories in a month. 100-300 calories only between breakfast and lunch. I thought i would die, but i am going to give it a shot.

One important thing to remember is that muscle weights more than fat. As you lose weight and your body begins to adjust itself you will find that muscles will begin to be called upon more and more as they become leaner and more toned. This can be a reason for increased weight.
