Secrets of Success

Accountability, Rewards, And Forgiveness




Keep yourself accountable but build in small rewards and forgive yourself for your mistakes. I find that tracking everything helps me lose weight, and scheduling in small rewards such as getting my hair or nails done, buying a luxury (such as nice lotion) or exercise outfit every five pounds or so keeps me motivated. Also, being honest with myself when I don't follow my nutrition plan and forgiving myself helps me get back on track faster and closer to my healthier me.
