Number One Diet Mistake!

by Kris Pitcher

There are a lot of diet mistakes. But there's one that's sure to stop you in your tracks. So for now, we're calling it the number one diet mistake. People do this all the time. They do it over and over.

We give up when we screw up. I've been up front with you all along. This will not be a perfect process. You are not perfect. You're just not. You will make mistakes. You'll screw up. You're human! Give yourself a break.

Then get back to it. Simple as that. It's the giving up that puts a big hold on things. See, we make a mistake...like eat something we didn't intend to eat. Let's just say it slipped into our mouths. We ate it, it's done. Next comes the guilt, remorse, and bad feelings.

I'll tell you what. Skip all that. Just skip that part, and get back on track. No one expects you to be perfect at this. Really, we don't. And you shouldn't either. We're going to make mistakes along the way. The difference in successful people (because they make mistakes too) is they just keep going. They don't give up.

You know my mantra...you only have to do weight management as long as you want it to work. Most of us want it to work forever. We've got time. Plenty of time. As long as we don't give up. Allow yourself to make mistakes and to be human. Don't make the number one diet mistake...don't give up when you screw up!
