Even though I get the gist of this article, I think this mentality is what has kept me fat. The whole, start slow, slow down if you need to, be good to yourself mantra FOR ME, has not produced results and caused frustration. When I began watching Biggest Loser, I realized I could work harder than I do. Obviously, I cannot work out for 6 hours a day, but I realized I could up the intensity and NOT let myself slow down and that I could be tougher on myself and all of a sudden, the scale started moving. So while I think these may be great tips for someone who is just beginning, FOR ME, they need to be left behind with the training wheels if I want to get some real results and achieve my goal. Otherwise, I give up and stay fat. Of course, I'm not saying NONE of these are good suggestions....just saying...for me.....I need to focus on working harder. Man I hope I don't get slammed for saying that. We're all different.
