When it comes to weight loss, there are going to be set-backs. It is important that you avoid using “all or nothing” statements. There will be slip-ups. Just accept the slip-up and get back on track. Do not beat yourself up over it. If you expect to have some setbacks, it will be easier to recover and move on. Focus on the good work you have done.
- Rectifying the cause
- Re-implementing your plan
- Setting extra-short term goals (if necessary)
