This is true! Well, not really. I can’t do it FOR you… but I can tell you how to have success for yourself.
This principle is one that goes back to the same ole thing that I have been talking about. That is, don’t be so hard on yourself. I am the world’s worst about this, so I need to write this to make sure that I follow my own advice.
Make sure that after you have fallen off of the wagon a bit… let’s say you are trying to lose weight… and let’s say you had a bunch of fried fish (what I did yesterday)…. Don’t freak out and then just say “screw it.” The bottom line is that I have changed my life and about 90-95% of the time, I DO eat right. It is not very often that I have FRIED ANYTHING… so it is not that big of a deal. Just pick up right where you left off. And don’t be hard on yourself. You know, we are not perfect!!!
In addition to this tip, I also want to share another with you. Now, this is one that I have seen in some materials that are about change. It keeps coming up over and over, no matter what author you are reading… it is —— (drum roll) —— establish short term wins! This means that you need to pick a time frame that you can live with and eat healthy. Once you accomplish that goal, then set another one for the same time period and go for it again. This goes back to what I have been saying about one day at a time.
It won’t be long until you will be able to see and feel the difference.
If you want to stop starting over… then stop quitting.- Unknown
