Let it go

Last week's Weight Watcher session dealt with forgiving yourself and moving on after a day -- or days -- of bad food choices. This is perhaps one of the most important keys we all have to learn if we're ever going to shed weight permanently.

This is exactly the message that Geneen Roth preaches in her latest bestseller, "Women God and Food." She says it differently, but it all comes down to a few points: Turn off the voices inside your head that love to scream negatives at you, and be kind to yourself. Understand that life is all about ups and downs, and although you might eat horridly one day, wake up the next morning with new resolve, recommit to healthy eating, and get on with life.

So what if it takes you a year to shed all the weight you want? First, we all know a year goes by in a flash. And second, even more importantly, if you spread the journey out, you honestly will have greater success, because along the way, you might just bump into the person you want to become.
