On to my thoughts:
It is amazing what powerful advice can come out of an animated character. But Dorie, the blue fish in Finding Nemo, is quite inspiring. As she navigates a minefield of jellyfish she keeps reminding herself, "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming." The weightloss journey is very similar in that there are a minefield of errors or setbacks you can make--food, lack of excersice, bad choices, emotions, etc. YOU have to make the decision to be like Dorie -- just keep swimming (or sparking, as the Cats team often hears me say). Do not focus on the past--it is gone. The only things to come from harping on those mistakes are guilt, depression, and a sense of failure. Instead, focus on what you CAN do this minute, today and tomorrow and remember no matter what comes your way, "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming."

I love my cattle prods, oops I mean Cat buddies!
