Overcoming a Setback

Overcoming a Setback

It happens — you miss a few workouts or you over indulge and you feel like you've fallen off the weight-loss wagon. It's tempting to mentally slap yourself around, right? (Or head for the fridge.) Before you start, I want to remind you of something: Being hard on yourself is the Old You.

The New You knows how to deal with setbacks and get back on the wagon. And after all, there are no mistakes, just learning experiences. Weight loss is a process — it takes time. You will encounter small failures — everyone does — but every pound you gain can be lost.

And if you miss a workout, or over indulge, it's not the end of the world! Start again the next day and continue to focus on your short-term goals. Just because you made bad choices today doesn't mean you can't start over tomorrow. NEW DAY = NEW BEGINNING. And don't you forget it!
