We all decided to take HCG to make a real change in our health, appearance, and attitude towards ourselves.
Lately, I have noticed a number of people making excuses for cheating or "falling off the wagon":
- "I couldn't help myself"
- "It wasn't my fault"
- "I had to"
- "I was starving/embarrassed"
- "They made me"
- "There was nothing else to eat"
Every time I see this, I wonder why we just aren't honest with ourselves and say:
- "I wanted it, so I ate it"
- "I was too lazy to plan"
- "I was afraid to not blend in with everyone else"
Hasn't making excuses contributed to our being overweight?
This diet requires that your head be in the game to see it to its successful conclusion. Every time you stop allowing the excuses and the fear, you find you are stronger than before.
Take courage from those who post their victories. If they can do it, so can you. Some of the long-timers here, including the mods, belong in the HCG Hall of Champions. They overcame their personal challenges and lost a whole lot more than 40 pounds.
If you cheat or fail, then man up, woman up and be honest with yourself. It's not the end of the world and it's nobody's fault but your own, but when you win, it's nobody's victory but your own! Tomorrow you get up and start again.
The reward is not only improved health and appearance, but more importantly, SELF-RESPECT.
I'm looking forward to seeing even more Success Stories. Have confidence in yourself. You are stronger than you know.
