Don’t Be Too Hard On Yourself
Negativity and self-criticism destroy thousands of people’s New Year weight loss goals every year. As soon as they experience a setback, make a poor dietary choice or skip a workout, they focus all their attention on it and criticize themselves heavily. This negativity often derails their weight loss progress and leads to them quitting.
However, setbacks are something that almost everyone experiences when trying to do anything in life, including losing weight. They’re an inevitable part of the journey and something that you need to accept. Focusing on setbacks in a negative way is not helpful and will only harm your efforts.
Therefore, when you do experience setbacks, accept them for what they are, strive to improve going forward and then move on. Don’t dwell on them and don’t give them any negative energy. Simply move forward with a positive attitude and focus firmly on your weight loss goals.
Besides, it’s humpday! Enjoy and finish the week strong!
Yours In Success,
