Use the 80/20 rule, If you are doing right 80% of the time, you will succeed. Life is not about perfection (says a former control-freak perfectionist). emoticon emoticon

You're doing fantastic! What helped me was to look at this as a healthier lifestyle and not a diet. Of course our choices are not always going to be perfect, however the healthier they get the better we feel. You are worth it! emoticon

Live each moment to its fullest!

Hi everyone. I am not new to dieting or to Sparkpeople, but I am new to going easy on myself. I am very much an all or nothing kind of person. If I can't do something 100% right, I give up. I have found time and again that it's a bad approach to a healthy lifestyle. So I'm going to give it my all and if I slip up, then I will get back on track. How have you guys been able to forgive yourselves and move forward? Any tips are greatly appreciated.
