It worked!! Thank you, Judy.
This pic just described my night...doing well then eating badly then doing well again. It's a sloow process for me. Hopefully those failures keep getting smaller and smaller.

Weight loss shares a lot in common with Thomas Edison's pursuit of the incandescent light bulb. After he had tried a thousand different substances for the filament none of which were successful a reporter asked him if he was discouraged. Not at all Edison replied now we've eliminated 1000 strategies, we're narrowing our field of inquiry. We all have experience of things which don't work, but instead of concluding nothing will work we are bravely putting ourselves out there again. Rachel I think that graphic should be on every bedroom wall the world over. A reminder. Failure is more prevalent than success. But failure isn't the last word unless you quit.!!

Thank you, Kathy.

Sharon, great comment about Edison and failure only being the end result if you quit. I needed that.

Rachael, thanks for sharing the graphic. That's cool.

That was a really nice way of going about it! I got a lot out of it. It's true people who are really successful fail a lot.

Rachael I have those days, but I have determined it is just like riding a bike, if you fall off you get back on. When you start to really cheat, make a mental list of all the reasons you need to go forward. Think of this as a life change, not a diet. If there is something you really want to eat, eat a small amount of it. Then exercise a little more. Make the exercise fun, something you enjoy. Keep at it, your health is the most important thing you have. Wish I would have keep up with that about 10 years ago, but it is never to late. I'm 56 and going to be stronger and fitter at 57. I have an Aunt who help inspire me, she is 90 and just lost 40 lbs, and is healthy as a horse. Good luck you can do it.
