Don'T Throw The Day Away


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I used to have a slip-up in the morning and throw the rest of the day away, until someone told me "if you drop an egg, do you throw the rest of the dozen on the floor? No, you make the most of what you have left!" That has stuck with me for years.

    My "all or nothing" attitude has been sabotaging my weight loss efforts for years! Now I'll be thinking about this catchy little "egg phrase" to help pull me through a slip up, Thanks so much for sharing!!
