quit using words like fail!!!! each meal is a new chance to make healthier choices. sometimes life/schedules are messed up. plan better for the next meal and move on!!! small goals are a great way to start changing your self-talk to positive. that is one of the most important thing....the 3 voices need to be sending love!!!

Thanks for the advice. Small goal for tonight is not going over my calorie limit for the day. And I am cooking dinner. emoticon

Wow! Spectacular fail. Eating my last meal at 12 and then staying up until 3 working is not a good plan. Set myself up for that fail. Not getting down on myself and avoiding the guilt and shame is my new challenge today. Part of being tough mentally has to be the ability to let go of mistakes and start fresh each morning.

I have found that quitting easily generally stems from a lack of self confidence, at least in my experience. The fastest way to ramp up ones self confidence is to set and keep small goals. Although it seems like it isn't much, there is real power in following through and finishing it, even when you don't feel like it. You gain self respect, the hardest respect to gain is your own..

I just wrote a blog series about getting a solid foundation for a successful journey, check it out if you feel so inclined... It's called The Path To The Holy Grail.

Best of luck my friend and stay committed.

I have recognised that I am now a quitter, even if I have not always been one. I give up too easily. I make excuses that sound weak to me, but I still trot them out in my mental conversations with myself [there are usually three of us there, don't ask] and now it has to stop. I welcome any suggestions to toughen myself up so I stand a better chance of winning, not only in the weight loss arena, but in life.

HELP!
