Secrets of Success

Keep It Simple




Staying motivated for me means lightening up in as many areas of my life as I can. If I take it all too seriously, most especially myself, I become overwhelmed and my resolve to lose weight falls away. And laughter is a life saver. emoticon

  • This is so true of me as well. It seems the harder I am on myself, the more I want to rebel! A gentle, forgiving approach works well when you are on any kind of self-improvement journey. That's not to say we shouldn't have a strong resolve to change, it's just a good idea to lighten up and not over-think everything. I believe this allows good eating and exercise habits to become second nature and a normal part of daily living! - by MWHITE1954
    This is a wonderful constitution to life. I, too, believe this. Thanks for putting it into words I can read aloud and HEAR! - by CATSGP
