When I tag a secret "I Like This" it's either a new product I want to try, a motivational secret, or possibly something I know but need to be reminded of.....soooo about monthly I review my "I Like This" list that Sparkpeople keeps for me at the top of your Secrets page.
I have posted in other secrets my top three secrets to loosing weight. This is my top motivational secret during that process. Do not, and I repeat, do not, beat yourself up! I have known many people over the years that have said; "I ate some chocolate while dieting and can't go on because I am a failure!" Wait just a minute, a failure because you ate some chocolate. "I just can't get up and moving in the morning. I am going to give up because I am a loser!" Well then, I am a failure and a loser.
Just get over it and move on. There will be many people who will try to bring you down and get you to stop dieting. They may or may not mean to do it, but they will. If you do not stay your top #1 fan they will talk you into being your own worst enemy. Don't talk yourself into it.
