I really needed to find and read this article today. I am eating healthy and being active but not taking the time to track everything or enter my goals done on SP every day now that summer is here and I am more focused on spending all my days outside instead of on the computer. I needed to read that even experts at fitness and wellness have weaknesses and times when they allow themselves to be flexible with their choices. Reading this article helped me to dump my guilt trip little inner voice that has been nagging me because I haven't been completely contentious or consistent in my SP program entries.

For me, getting plenty of rest and sleep is a necessity for good health. There's nothing "guilty" about it.

Great article!! Now I don't feel so bad when I have my favorite guilty-pleasure pizza. All in moderation.

Thanks Dean, Chris, Becky, Tanya, Jen, and Nicole! It's so nice to know we're being led-inspired-taught-trained-coached by real human beings that admit to the same temptations we all face daily. Good questions, great answers and wonderful insight into the whole lifestyle thing! Life is a journey, life is choices, life is a challenge but most of all life is a gift from God. Make each day count and enjoy the trip!

This was a great article and really resonated with me- especially the part about how even after eating healthy dark chocolate still tastes good, versus sugary sodas that just don't.

The guilty pleasures ARE essential. The first time I did weight watchers I NEVER cheated. But then came the really stressful event, and I ate an ENTIRE sheet cake. Sad. It even had ugly green frosting (my sister was experimenting). Nasty. I even hate cake! But I indulge in the things I REALLY like now, and it helps stay on track.

Thanks for the honesty! I am more willing to listen to someone's teachings when I know they aren't any more perfect that I am and have no problem admitting it! Great article!

The new members need to read this article. It helped me re: snacks, chocolate, etc. I'd make this required reading as so many posts from new members mention eating too much of their favorite foods. It's opened my eyes and I won't feel guilty when I indulge. But we won't count the nearly whole bag of Doritos I ate while in Walmart when I went to buy an ink cartridge. Now why do they put Doritos in the computer/tech department? For folks like me.

This was a great article. It just enforces my "new" way of looking at weight loss. Moderation when it comes to food and nothing is off limits. Rest from exercise when you feel like your body needs it. Also, take one day off a week just to enjoy being, whether that is with family, or just for yourself. And by all means Dean, I agree, have a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup now and then! Especially around Christmas or Easter. They seem to be better than. *smile*

Ahhh I really enjoyed this article. I think when you're trying to lose weight, you tend to like give up ALL bad foods, and then when you get your hands of them, BHAM, it's like a natural disaster.... IT's nice to know that Coach Nicole has a sweet tooth and she indulge but not over do it. And It's good to know that hey even at her level, she lets her body rest at least once a week... I think a lot of ppl, myself included, tend to be all gung ho to begin with, and then deflate by the end of the week.. THANKS FOR MAKING MY DAY! :)
