From my past experiences I’ve found that if I take an “all or nothing” attitude when making changes in my life, the chances that I burnout and backslide increase dramatically.

Deciding to go with an extreme diet with unrealistic expectations is a way of self-sabotaging where you’ll end up defeated, frustrated and a bit more jaded from where you started.

I’ve discovered that implementing small behavior patterns or mechanisms over time that I stick with offer the best chance for me to continue over the long haul that result in significant positive changes.

It’s a long way of saying, maybe we shouldn’t bite off more than we can chew.

After all, no one wants to feel overwhelmed or even worse; choke.
