Don'T Make Things Worse!

This Sparked Me!

If you slip up and eat something not in your plan, it's kind of like dropping one egg. You wouldn't drop the other eleven just because you dropped one, would you?

MORE INFORMATION:
The idea is that you forgive yourself and just start over. It's worth the effort, always!

    I needed to see this today. I have just had a rough couple of weeks and I have slipped a lot - but one thing that I finally said to myself. . . .why would I forfeit three months of hard work over two bad weeks! Get back on track and save the other eggs! :) Thanks for sharing. :)

    I really like this idea!! It uses a lot of common sense and makes me centered.
