Love your mistakes and what you learn from them

When I try to "love my mistakes" and imperfect me, I recover from them often much faster than if I dwell in them. Acceptance of my imperfections and being grateful for what I'm learning is the key for me. I've learned I need to treat myself well to keep my motivation flowing.

I write down what I eat

Writing down what I eat gives me accountability. That way I can also check what I've eaten from the food groups, the calories I've eaten and what I have left to eat. It helps me a lot to do this.

Be gentle on yourself

I tend to gain weight when I'm hard on myself. If I'm more gentle on myself I tend to get back on more quickly and feel better about myself.
