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.
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!
I have recently returned to SparkPeople after a long absence. This time I find my focus to be more on what I am doing and why rather than how. It seems to be helping. Thank you for being there when I need you.

just starting again. read the comments. nice to know that I'm not in this alone.
Am obsessing over doing it perfect. I am doing my goals for the fitness part of the program. Now all I have to do is lighten up and be as consistent as possible. I think that the poster of goals can help and I need to stop long enough to make mine and hang it up!
