Great insights! I can see that this article touched a nerve. Maintaining a healthy perspective is such a key breakthrough. I am doing better at how I view temporary slip-ups--such as too many potato chips and other snacks over Memorial Day weekend. I re-gained 4 lbs in as many days, and now I have to work harder to take it off again. But is it a disaster worth screaming at myself about? No, it is not.
We also have to know what to take seriously. My mom dismissed her doctors' repeated warnings about being an overweight, sedentary smoker with a slew of health problems (and scary family history) until it was too late.
