Friday afternoon. I found this article on to be further reinforcement of my belief that the harder I fight to be "perfect", the more likely I am to blow it and fall off the wagon completely. I especially like the advice about allowing ourselves to have small portions of formerly tabu foods but not going whole hog and ordering the Super Size portion. I know that I've been guilty of that many, many times and it's just so self sabotaging.

I also like this article, also on, which discusses the link between belief that you will be successful at something and actually being successful. Basically, I just need to repeat, "I can lose 110 pounds!", and, "I can run a marathon!" over and over until I convince myself that they're true. What things are you trying to do that you secretly have doubts about?
