I liked this article but I think the saying is 1 step forward 2 steps back. To indicate you aren't making any progress.

The article is true. We need to take a step back sometimes and regroup.

Thank you for this! Today, I was really feeling bad about falling short of many of my personal goals. Guilt and shame was setting in. Then I realized that even on my worse day God still loves me. I am still the apple of HIS eye. With that, I know that even if I fall 7 times, I can get up 8. That was awesome.

This article is just what I needed and just in time. I've slacked off tracking my food and fitness for a few days. I won't beat myself up this time. I'll pat myself on the back for the amount of weight I've already lost and get back up. Sending skinny and healthy vibes to everyone.

An excellent article which provides a wealth of information for dealing with those difficult times. It provides good strategies for dealing with situations which can demotivate us.

This is a wonderful article and a great way to change around some thinking. The words are the same but the meaning is totally different when the order is changed. THANK YOU is all I can say.

I love the "return to the basics"! We get caught up in the newest fad, or simply wanted to read everything we can get our hands on. Sometimes you just have to take a step back and regroup!

Great article. Just had my one step back and looking ahead to two steps forward instead of continuing in the wrong direction! Thanks for the change in perspective.

I love this article. I tend to be a perfectionist and more than anything this is what sabotages most of my health goals. Life pops up and I end up giving up just because I didn't do "perfectly." This article really puts it in the right perspective. LOL. I may have to read it once a month until the lesson sinks in but i'm very glad its here!

Love this article - it really puts everything into perspective. Sometimes it does feel like I "failed" when I screw up a meal or decide not to get up when my alarm goes off to exercise.

But when I look back and see in the last week I had 6 days of eating healty, and I worked out 5 - that reminds me that I'm on the right track.

I love the one step back...two forward. Thank you for a great article!
