Get Motivated: Let Go of Past Weight Loss Failures

Five years ago you started doing a trendy diet and lost some weight, but then gained it all back. Then four years ago you exercised seven days a week and lost lots of weight, but once again gained it all back when you stopped working out. Three years ago you went on Weight Watchers, but just gave up. Then two years ago you started juicing twice a year and lost more weight, but gained it back as soon as you started eating real food again. Last year you went to a weight loss camp, and lost weight but gained it all back once you entered back into the real world. Now, this year you're wanting to lose a few pounds again and finally get healthy. Problem is, you've let yourself down so many times that you're having a hard time believing that you can actually lose the weight and keep it off once and for all. Sound familiar at all?

If so, take a moment to sink it all in and then take another moment to let it all go. If you think that you're just going to gain it all back again, chances are you will. So begin your latest (and last) endeavor by letting go of your past weight loss failures and forgive yourself for them. So you've had a few setbacks? Accept them and realize that this time you're in it for good — we all have no issues with forgiving other people, so why not forgive yourself as well?
