"Perfectionism does not lead to perfection."
To succeed, you need to grow, learn and expand your world. Perfectionism limits your growth and takes away your chances of finding a more excellent pat.
Many times we want our weight loss to show perfectionism and yet we only sabotage ourselves in the process. If we don't reach the place where we think we should be perfect, we sometimes give completely up and quit. But we shouldn't think of dieting as trying to get to perfection. We need to look at this not necessarily as losing weight but as getting healthier to live life to the fullest.
Each of us is as different as the snowflakes and yet no snowflake is completely perfect, just as no person is completely perfect. Sometimes we expect too much and when we don't get to that level of perfection, we think "what's the use." Perfection can come at a high cost, not only to our health but to our mental and emotional state as well.
Let's strive not for perfection but to enjoy the ride and concentrate on getting healthier so we can enjoy the ride.
