Overcoming a Setback

It happens — you miss a few workouts and you feel like you've fallen off the weight-loss wagon. It's tempting to mentally slap yourself around, right? (Or head for the fridge.) Before you start, I want to remind you of something: Being hard on yourself is the Old You.

The New You knows how to deal with setbacks and get back on the wagon. And after all, there are no mistakes, just learning experiences. Weight loss is a process — it takes time. You will encounter small failures — everyone does — but every pound you gain can be lost.

And if you miss a workout, it's not the end of the world! Get to the gym the next day and continue to focus on your short-term goals. Just because you made bad choices today doesn't mean you can't start over tomorrow. New day? New beginning. And don't you forget it!


  1. Easily said, not so easy to do :)! I struggle with letting one bad day go a lot...I tend to spiral a bit before I give myself a break and move past the mistakes. It's something I keep working on though and it is great advice!

  2. Ok... for some ungodly reason, the TV blog wasn't added to my feed. What blasphemy is this! Rest assured that it has returned to it's rightful place and I will once again be reciving you're insights.

  3. I have done this too!! I have been doing this since Jan. But I am back and I plan on helping my friends too.
