I haven't had a "Setback" in years.
I've maintained a good weight and fitness because this is a set of habits and a way of life. There are times when I have less energy, or when I have a terrific, extravagant meal, but I don't call this a setback. It's an interesting interlude, and in the case of something delicious, worth every calorie. I just go back to my diet and exercise, and there is no problem.
I remember times I felt there were Setbacks. That was when the whole diet and exercise thing felt like something was imposed on me, and when it felt like a matter of virtue and guilt. That just never worked for me. It definitely is a matter of attitude.
