Guilty! I have definitely used the "negative goals" I think, in my mind, I have changed them to more positive goals over time. My "I am going to STOP eating fast food all the time." has turning into, "I am going to eat more healthy foods and make healthier choices." It is a good thing too. Based on my original goal, I am sort of a failure. Based on the modified goal, those times when we end up with fast food, I am making the healthier food choices--and normally staying within all my nutrition limits for the day.
