We all know the importance of nutrition and exercise when it comes to losing weight, but very few people focus on having a positive mindset – the missing 3rd ingredient. Anyone who decides to lose weight will have to deal with negative emotions on their journey, and how they deal with those emotions will determine their outcome.
We all have bad days when we are trying to lose weight. Maybe we ate a piece of cake at work for a coworker’s birthday and felt guilty. This guilt led us to grab a cookie in the breakroom a couple hours later. And then we became so upset with ourselves, that we just threw in the towel the rest of the day and went to bed feeling frustrated and defeated. So how do we overcome these emotions?
