Personally though if i gain weight or don't lose much weight I know there are areas i can still improve on in my diet especially. I don't know if you feel that way but i do. It's not all or nothing. If you don't lose this week you can improve next week. This is a long journey we have not a sprint. But we both can do it!!!

I know there's room to improve, but I'd like to make changes gradual while seeing progress. I've always been held up to such high standards that if I don't succeed on the first try it's usually all over and I've messed it up for good, so when things don't go right the first try, I start to freak out. Perfect example, this past quarter I got a B- on ONE paper and I hated myself for a week and I actually cried. I know that sounds extremely stupid, but it's how I feel and how I approach anything.

Unfortunatley though with weight loss you do plateau and sometimes you have bad weeks and sometimes their is no method to the madness in when you lose weight. Maybe trying to lose weight will teach you something about youself more than weight loss, like just putting less stringent expectations on yourself. I'm sure stringent expectations will serve you well in most aspects of life but sometimes you have to be more forgiving to yourself.
