Healthy, positive emotions are key to weight loss success.
If you are trying to lose right or get healthier, the worst thing you can do is feel that you have slipped up or are failing. Regret and guilt will follow, and you will begin to worsen your eating habits. One meal will grow into one day of overeating, which will expand into a week, and the next thing you know, you have gained 20 pounds. The worst type of eating is emotional eating. If you have regret or guilt and are depressed, you will overeat, and the negative emotions will grow.
The Bottom Line: Don’t let a little slip-up define you and have you down. Fight to get back up and kick regret, guilt, and depression square in the buttocks. You can and will do this.
