"Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew -" ~ St. Francis de Sales

“TAKE ACTION! Wanting is not enough; Act upon your goals! If somebody was watching your day-to-day behavior, would they be able to see what you’re working towards; what your goals are? If the answer is no, FIX IT!” -Steve Maraboli

I totally agree that people often discount the "NSV" (non scale victories). Working out, eating clean - improves health no matter how frustrating it is when the scale doesn't budge -- not to mention the lift in mood!
I do agree tracking your food, water, sleep, exercise and reducing stress is very important. Looking at this journey as a lifestyle not just as a temporary solution is also key! Reducing salt and sugar were pretty important for me and getting enough rest and relaxation in!
NEVER, EVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF, NEVER! I think people are too quick to give up when the scale doesn't move fast enough or when they screw up some. Its better to get back up on the horse than to have to start over with even more to lose. There are many NSV's (non scale victories) like your clothes fit better, you have more energy, you are losing inches, you are getting stronger. Those things are just as important to track as numbers going down on a scale. Reading the articles is a huge help and as you go along you can put into practise what you've learned!
