Motivational Quote - Strive for progress, not perfection.

SparkPeople's Comments

On your path to healthy living, you'll have good days, bad days, and days that are "just OK." Don't go into your lifestyle changes with the mindset that you have to be perfect all the time, because you don't! Instead, focus on taking baby steps to health that will help you reach your goals.

Yes progress is very attainable if you work at it, perfection isn't…and what is "perfection" anyway? Another thing that's in the eye of the beholder! I just did my weekly weigh in and am the same as last week….BUT…I lost an inch off my waist!! So that's progress right? :)

If we strive for perfection, we will never achieve it. We will just get discouraged and quit. Progress comes when we continue to continue. Never give up, even when we "slip up". Just pick up and continue.

Reaching reasonable, sensible goals is so much more important than perfection
Take those baby steps to good health one day at a time

This is an potent reminder for me. I must remember perfection is not a reasonable goal, but progress is!
