Accept Me

Everyone hates a quitter, right?

But there comes a point in life when you just have to stop trying.

That doesn’t mean you are a failure.

It’s just a realization that there are certain things that we cannot change.

This includes my inability to lose weight.

Post script: Accept Me is the B-side to Every Time. The latter is the sixth single off The Velvet Rope CD which sold more than 10 (ten) million copies worldwide.

Remember that there can also regrets in doing nothing...

Raft3r said...

wait, Not if you tried your darn best. =)

wait said...

im listening to it right now ' for the first time : )
i think this song is about a woman who is in a relationship where the guy is trying to change her.
she keeps trying to convince him otherwise and prove to him that he should just accept her for who she is bec he will probably never have another person who cares for him like she does. Tama Ba? Hehe

Raft3r said...

wait, It's a great song about acceptance. Hehe

wait said...

I am not a fan of your wifey'
but it's a nice song!
Janet is amazing... Hehe

Raft3r said...

wait, She is brilliant.

"inability" to lose wt?

I hope that "inability" is only temporary. But as long as u'r happy, then who cares?

Happy Weekend Blog Friend!

len said...

Hindi ka nag-iisa. I also gained eight pounds.

But weight is just a number. nyahaha
Defensive! :p

Raft3r said...

len, Parang edad lang ano? Just a number. Hehe

atticus said...

ay naku, ading. one great business person did it by slowly doing it. what he did was lose two pounds each year. each year! so be kind to yourself. set a goal you can live with.

Raft3r said...

atticus, I want 10 pounds in 10 days! Nyahaha

Wendy said...

The best way to lose weight is to fall in love. Either maging sobra kang inspired na magpapayat or puro kunsomisyon ang abot mo kaya ayaw mo nang kumain. Hehehe.

Raft3r said...

wendy, That is not true. Naranasan ko na yan. Not true. Nyahaha

hitokirihoshi_kawii said...

so ayaw mo na madagdagan yun?
puwede namang 10,000,001 copies di ba?

hehehe nangungulit lang

Raft3r said...

hitokirihoshi_kawaii, Ehem. Lampas 10 million copies sold na. So baka mga 10,000,002 na sya. Nyahaha

The Scud said...

pamigay mo na lang kay scud ang excess fat mo. baka makatulong sa paghahanap ng isang janet sa buhay ko. :D

Raft3r said...

the scud, You want additional 50 pounds? Hehe

The Scud said...

15 lbs lang. i-auction mo ang iba. hehe.

Raft3r said...

the scud, Nyahaha. Mabenta siguro yan. Hehe

Liz said...

Naku isipin mo na lang papangit ka pag di ka nagpapayat, kaya don;t give up on it. :)

laieesha said...

lose weight?? seriously?? where?? i dont think you're fat... are you anorexic? hehehe i think acceptance comes from within, not from what people say or think. maybe you're referring to "toning" the body, but not necessarily losing weight... for me, having a little meat is what makes a person sexy, di ba?

Andy said...

Kala ko magreresign ka na, eheh.

Baligtad tayo; ako hirap na hirap ako mag gain ng weight.

Raft3r said...

liz, Nyahaha. May salitang pangit talaga? Hehe

laieesha, Hehe. Wala pa naman akong eating disorder. Di naman ako model, eh. Nyahaha

andy, Naku. Bawal mag-resign. Dami dapat bayaran. Hehe

Random Student said...

Wendy said...

Not true ba? Baka lalo kang nagkagana kumain? Stress-eating siguro yun hehehe.

eden said...

yan din ang problema ko ngayon, i am gaining more weight. tripping ko ngayon mga chocolates at cakes.. ay naku, plus christmas is coming, many foods and parties lolz.. i am afraid i can fit Santa Clause outfit na..hehehe

Raft3r said...

random student, Nyahaha. Opo. Eto bibisita na. Hehe

wendy, I eat all the time. In love man o hindi. Hehe

eden, Hehe. Masarap talaga kasi kumain, eh. Tapos may lechon pa sa Pasko. Hala. Patay na tayo dyan. Hehe

the donG said...

hahaha... hope is still high for me. now reducing food intake for a climb or trek maybe in december or january.

Raft3r said...

the dong, Sounds like fun. Pasama! Hehe

RaYe said...

okay lang naman mag-quit as long as you've tried it and gave your best shot.
shempre, it's a futile fight if you just keep on losing. :D

i'd rather channel my energy on another fight kesa i-waste yun sa bagay na matatalo lang ako.. :D

Raft3r said...

raYe, Hehe. Tama yan!

prinsesamusang said...

are you out of your mind? it's not like you look like a whale or something. take it easy.

Raft3r said...

prinsesamusang, That is a matter of perception. Nyahaha

atticus said...

goals you can live with nga eh. punyeta. kulit ah! walang magic pill sa weight loss. kaya pinaghihirapan, para matandaan mo iyong hirap tuwing lalafang ka ng litson! letse. ginagalit ako ah.

lika rito, pakurot!

Raft3r said...
