We all make mistakes, fall off the wagon, gain back the weight we've lost (or some of it), but the best thing we can do is forgive ourselves. We need to look at what we've done wrong, and find what we can learn from our mistakes, but then we need to let it go and move on. Holding on to the guilt and shame will only hold us back. Each day is a new day, a fresh start, a new chance to get things right, to move on and work toward what (or who) we want to become.

  • This is absolutely SO true! It may be one of the most important lessons a person can learn. Guilt is such a defeatist thing. I have been up and down in my weight loss journey - and guilt has definitely played a HUGE part in both my failure and my success. Ultimately, I think I have defeated the guilt monster and have been maintaining my weight for over 6 years now. Thank you for this tip! - by FERRETLOVER1
