How to Deal with Setbacks

Bounce Back from Life's Hurdles


  • I really like the poem bit included. this applies to me. You have to learn to put mistakes behind you and work with what you will do instead of what you did. - 4/13/2010 2:38:39 PM
  • This is what I really needed to read at this moment, not for weight loss but for another situation going on in my life. Thanks, God will put anything needed in our path to show us the way !!!! Hallelujah !!! - 4/13/2010 2:14:14 PM
  • I just hit a set back and this article helped me keep it in perspective. Thanks. - 4/13/2010 2:11:53 PM
  • great advice thank you. - 4/13/2010 2:10:40 PM
    I have a tendency to steer out of control and sometimes even wreck, but I always get back on my feet and get back on the rode heading in the right direction - just slower than others. - 4/13/2010 1:25:55 PM
  • Thank you for this timely reminder... living with regrets gets us further from our goals, not closer to them. I'm also mindful that I'm harder on myself than on anyone else - I really should cut myself some slack! - 4/13/2010 1:23:31 PM
    This article was just what I needed. - 4/13/2010 1:12:25 PM
  • This is JUST what I needed. I have definately hit a bump after an extremely busy week leading up to Easter and it just keeps spiraling. I think I have gained back 2 of the 14 pounds I had lost. Its time to revisit my goals and get back on track! - 4/13/2010 1:03:35 PM
    I have been using all kinds of excuses too for not exercising as much as I should. For 50 some odd years I had no problem with my weight and now that I'm almost 65 I am and it's hard for me to take. I'm relatively young looking at least for my age and usually very upbeat but lately because of the extra pounds I'm feeling a little sorry for myself. I probably need a swift kick in the butt to get going again. This is the first thing I've posted and I feel good about it because now it's out there and maybe it will give me incentive to get going! - 4/13/2010 12:59:29 PM
  • So true! Move on. - 4/13/2010 12:56:14 PM
  • I was really disappointed this morning when I weighed and had GAINED three pounds ! I felt I had done everything right - exercised 6 days, stayed within my calorie limit, etc. This article came at the right moment ! I still exercised today and plan to stay the course, but I had gotten on the scale with such great expectations and was severely let down. I WILL STAY THE COURSE ! - 4/13/2010 12:56:13 PM
  • Perfect timing for me too, messing up alittle is usually an excuse for me to blow the whole thing off- not today - 4/13/2010 12:52:14 PM
  • This article couldn't have come at a better time. I have been making excuses for my lack of exercise for weeks now due to bad weather , foot problems, no time, etc. (like I say they are excuses). But I qualify them as setbacks. Your mind kind talk you into all sorts of things. I now need to get back on the wagon and let my mind say the positive things I know it can say to me. This article really helped to shake me up. - 4/13/2010 12:36:58 PM
  • I have been struggling with motivation and strength this week and this article was just what I needed to hear. Great poem too! Thanks. - 4/13/2010 12:01:17 PM

    This is so what I need to hear right now: A couple months of sinus infections and allergies completely got my exercise habits off track. The progress I had made weight-wise is gone. But now I'm not feeling as much of a failure as I had been. - 4/13/2010 12:00:45 PM
