So far I have lost 15lbs. Which is great, but to be quite honest, I know I could have done better. But, I cannot beat myself up about this. The reason I made the contest 90 days is to teach myself that this is a life long commitment.
I have learned to not put myself down for a bad day or even a bad week. Each day is a new starting point. Just because I have a dessert after lunch, doesn't mean the rest of my day is shot. I tell myself, "Ok, I had a treat today, I will have a light dinner, or throw in an extra workout and move on with my life."
Self confidence is a powerful tool we have. Remembering that you are strong and deserve to be healthy is a great way to keep yourself on track and to not put yourself down.
