  • I've been doing this right along it's a huge help. One of the teams I am has a Spark member who is in the "The Spark" and she had told me she does this. I quickly adopted it. One meal is NOT a big deal. If I really go to town and my weight goes up (sometimes 4 lbs) it'll go back down within 10 days as long as I stay on my regular eating new habits. - 12/5/2016 12:56:04 AM
  • I really needed this today - took a step back yesterday and trying to not beat myself up for it. - 6/12/2016 9:14:43 AM
  • This is a wonderful article! Gives us direction and hope. Fewer of us will quit the race, but just go 1 step back then 2 steps forward!

    Thanks! (((hugs))) - 11/30/2015 6:48:09 PM

    I especially found the closing line of this article the most helpful for me: "Just make a commitment to do things as right as possible as much as you can." I'm going to try & focus on it "as much as I can" to improve positivity & delete "negativity!"

  • I so needed to read this article today and am going to read it again because today has been such a disaster that I've been wondering if I'll recover from it. I'm in two weight loss challenges right now and gained 2.9 pounds this week on one of them and am scared of what the scales will say tomorrow. My sweet tooth has been in OVER DRIVE and it's hard to tame it back and then my sweet son, who never buys sweets, comes home with THREE boxes of Girl Scout cookies and of course, I couldn't let there by any left for tomorrow. Thankfully, he ate one box and my daughter and I chowed down on the other two. I am going to follow the advice from the article and write up a mantra of some kind I can put up in the kitchen so I'll stay away from something sweet. I don't have cookies laying around but my "addiction" the past two weeks has been warm oatmeal smothered in butter and brown sugar.....oatmeal = good for you butter/brown sugar = not so good Here's to a better tomorrow and I will be continuing on with the daily resets to get things right. - 3/19/2015 9:24:51 PM
  • I liked this article but I think the saying is 1 step forward 2 steps back. To indicate you aren't making any progress. - 7/2/2014 4:35:53 PM

  • The article is true. We need to take a step back sometimes and regroup. - 8/16/2013 6:36:33 PM
  • 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. - 7/31/2013 11:18:33 AM
  • 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. - 2/24/2013 10:54:51 PM
