What to do with failure

I'm going to be honest with you.

I failed.

I failed many times in the last 2 weeks.

For a minute or two, I threw the towel and gave up for that moment.

I didn't plan my food every day.

Some days, I just had 1L of water.

Other days, I slept for 5 hours.

I overate and let myself eat whatever.

I could justify myself for taking those actions.

I could give so many different and true excuses too.

I would be making me a victim of my own life.

If I do that, I would be blaming everything and everyone, but me... I would be giving my power away.

I failed many times in the past, and every time I quit afterwards.

I quit on myself and on my health because for me failure meant stop.

The result of that was a yo-yo body, a damage relationship with myself, and a lot of fear of failure.

The problem is not the failure itself.

The problem is how I feel when I fail.

I felt defeated. I felt scared of feeling defeated.

Therefore, I stop! I quit! I give up!

The difference between that time and now is that for me failure means learning.

Failure means keep moving forward.

The fear is still there, but fear doesn't mean stop.

So now I keep moving forward, restarting and learning.

I'm learning everyday how not to quit when I fail, because I know that failure is just part of the process.

Most of the time I won't be feeling like doing anything, but if I do, I'll have the results I want.

There is no results without actions.

If you want to lose weight, if you want to be healthy...

Take action everyday.

Feel the fear and do it anyway, because then, the result is inevitable.
