Failure in an integral part of success. If you want to succeed you need to be prepared to fail. Sometimes we feel like success is impossible because we have failed so many times. I say success is possible because you have failed SO MANY TIMES. So many is the key word here- that means that you keep getting back up and trying again. The successful person stays in the game- and keeps on failing so they can grow even stronger. Success in weight loss is not linear it has platforms, it has valleys, it requires readiness, willingness and courage and defeat to try and fail and try and succeed and to try and get even better than the last time. To me the success is in the story, the outcomes just end the current chapter.
