Secrets of Success

Be Honest With Yourself



Keep tracking even when you've made bad choices. The process of tracking keeps you honest with yourself which is so important in making a change. It's also more likely that you will stay on track after logging it all instead of just feeling like you've already "blown it" and giving up on the day.

  • Honesty is the best policy!
    This applies to yourself also in doing things for yourself also. No cheating too! - by JAMBUTTER
  • Absolutely!! - by RAYLINSTEPHENS
  • I struggled with this last night. I hadn't completely blown it, but, I ate more than I usually do. I had to force myself to track all of the things I ate. I told myself, "I can lie to myself all I want, but my body knows the truth, and lying is not going to change what I put in my body." So I did. I know I have to try a little harder today, and work a little harder. But I can forgive myself, learn, and move on! emoticon - by ELIZABETHRUDY
