staying focused on what really works

Well when I started 2008 I lost 26 ounds in 6 months. I did it with the flatbelly diet. I somehow got out of that and tried other plans but this is the only one that works for me. after a 10 pound gain I am down 5 with another 5 to go then set another goal.

Look at all you have accomplished!

When you detour from your journey, instead of giving up and giving in to all temptations, look at all the progress you have made so far. You don't want to have to work to lose those same pounds all over again. So if you slip up, learn from it and refocus on your accomplishments and your goals.
