I wrote a blog recently that truly summarizes my new philosophy.
Be kinder to yourself than you would be to others! You are the only you that you have! Don't worry about the scale, but whether you made a plan and stuck to it. Did you do something good for you today! That is way more important than any number on a scale or blood pressure cuff! Keep your streaks and be proud of the little things you do!!!! Cheer yourself on!!!
Smile as it really does improve your mood!
