Motivational Quote - A setback is when you slip up, get busy, or become distracted from your goals. A failure is when you decide your health isn't worth the effort.

SparkPeople's Comments

Everyone has health and fitness setbacks and slip-ups--nobody is perfect all the time. Realize that your setbacks are not failures; they are learning opportunities. Learn and grow from them, and then pick yourself back up and face your challenges with even more determination.

THIS IS A GREAT QUOTE. I MIGHT HAVE SETBACKS BUT AFTER READING THIS QUOTE I'LL REMEMBER NOT TO LET FAILURE GET ME DOWN AND GO ON

I just love this quote. It suits my today's feelings so well! I had some sad news yesterday which led to a binge and three wine glasses. This morning I felt like an utter failure, but then I decided to leave it behind and go to gym. I had a proper workout and a proper lunch afterwards, and I feel like I don't have to dwell on last night's setback anymore. It's the big picture that counts!

I needed this after working hard to get 25 lbs of and then backsliding from everything I've learned and from good habits. I don't want to give up! I know I have to work at this to get it 'right' again, before I loose all the hard work I did to get here!
