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).

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!

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.
