Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - A setback is when you slip up, get busy, or become distracted from your goals. A failure is when you decide your health isn't worth the effort.

SparkPeople's Comments

Everyone has health and fitness setbacks and slip-ups--nobody is perfect all the time. Realize that your setbacks are not failures; they are learning opportunities. Learn and grow from them, and then pick yourself back up and face your challenges with even more determination.

INDEED! Timely reminder .... there is an ebb and flow to changing my lifestyle. And change IS what's happening.

I'm at goal weight now and nearly slipped and let myself get into trouble at a party but I'd seen this quote before on my bulletin board at home and was able to control myself and still have a good time.
