The temptation with failure is to just give up and flounder in and out. We need to learn from our mistakes!! Take a step back... really examine our failures... then move forward again!! It is much like Spark People's "one step back, two steps forward." If you give up... you lose! So let's go!

  • this is indeed a biggie. When we make a mis-step ( as we all do from time to time) we must get back to our plan with the very next bite that goes into our mouth. Don't say tomorrow, or next week, but next bite. - by GOALIEGRANDMA3
  • setbacks help us to learn. examine why you had the setback and get some positive reinforcement. make a clean slate and start over. review some new exercise dvds, tighten up the diet, shop for healthy food, clean out the fridge, buy some new workout clothes, thats what works for me. - by YOGAGIRL55
