If someone is not part of your personal world, don't allow them to affect your emotional world. It's wasted emotions. Why? Because they aren't worth it.

Even if you've eaten garbage all day, and you're feeling down on yourself, just log in. Collect your points, read articles, and remember why you're doing this. I always log in and it always helps me get back on track, even if I gorged on cookies at lunch!
For every pound I lost, I put $5 in an envelope in a bureau drawer. If I gained a pound, out came the $5. I never "borrowed" from it. I only put in money when a whole pound was lost. When I reached goal I had enough to treat myself and my new body to a day at a spa!
