Be forewarned: Perfectionism can lead to:
Low self-esteem (if I am not perfect, no one will love me),
Low-productivity and in some cases obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD),
Procrastination (no point in doing something if I can’t do it perfectly)
DUMPING THE DIET … a.k.a. giving up!
Give up the ALL or NOTHING Mentality NOW! Trying to be perfect goes against the grain of the natural flow of life. If the ALL or NOTHING WEIGH OF THINKING is interfering with your life, in any way (weigh), shape (pear shaped or apple) or form (extra rolls around your middle), I invite you to consider letting go of this potentially dangerous approach, that is only going to lead you to a crash and burn failure (again)!
Go with the 80/20 Plan!
On occasion, you will find that you are a little to the right or left of your food plan. Could
be it’s your birthday (or mine), or you ordered steamed vegetables NO sauce, and ‘they’ delivered it with sauce. If your healthy living plan is too rigid, you will crack! Plain and simple. Don’t crack. Be flexible.
