Very good article. Our flesh always wants to do what isn't right; more food, more rest, more mindless entertainment. We let our flesh convince us that these things will make us happy. In reality, the opposite is true. We are designed to set goals and achieve them. This is where happiness is found.
Loved the article, it really hit the nail on the head as that is exactly how I was feeling when I blew it all. I was thinking that I'm destined to be overweight forever & what's the sense it even trying, I may as well sit in front of the tv & pig out every day. This article has been a great help!

could anyone can tell me the price of Omega3 EPA+DHA〉81%？ Thanks.
A similar technique I was taught to reduce the number of negative thoughts banging around in my head was to say "STOP!" to myself as soon as one of those negative tape loops started. I was warned that once you notice how many times the negative thoughts, they come faster and faster, like the high point of a bell-curve diagram. The frequency will go down, however, but once you begin with this method, you shouldn't stop using it until the number of neg thoughts goes down. It does work.
This really got to me. I have been trying for 8-9 years and I always give up because I am so hard on myself and expect perfection. Now, I will expect to give into temptation sometimes but I will also expect to get right back up and learn from it. Beating myself up will not solve anything and neither will outrageous expectations.
Excellent article. I am by nature a very positive and outgoing person but once in a blue moon I have to deal with a situation that can bring me down and then I have to find the positive and pull myself out of the negativity. I will save this article and also pass it on to family and friends. Thank you for sharing this~Jules
