Tip of the Day - Keep your chin up

Wouldn’t it be ideal if losing weight was all about doing well and making progress? We all know that life does not work like that. So let’s be honest: you will face setbacks and challenges as you’re trying to lose weight, it’s just reality. Now what?

If you’re faced with anything you consider a setback, it’s human nature to feel discouraged. You might even question your program or contemplate giving up. Before you surrender, wait! It IS worth it – without a doubt!

The truth is we all face struggles when trying to lose weight. Challenges are part of the game and they CAN be overcome. The trick isn’t trying to sidestep setbacks, it’s figuring out how to deal with them. That starts with not giving up.

Stay hopeful and confident! No matter what has happened, don’t let it derail you. It’s only temporary. Get right back on your program, your motivation will return, and you’ll wonder why you questioned your resolve in the first place.

    This is exactly what I needed to read tonight. I am going out of something I consider as a setback. I think you are totally right! :) I just have to stay confident. Thanks for this post.

    That is great advice ... plus a song kept on playing today when I watched part of Oprah today.

    Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" now I can't get that song out of my head.
