When dieters are feeling somewhat off track, they tend to overgeneralize and think that they’re not doing well on all of their dieting skills, when in fact, that’s often not the case. If you feel like you’re having a bad week, ask yourself: Is that an accurate picture of what’s going on? Are there some things that I’m still doing well? Remember that one or two mistakes in no way negates everything I’m doing well and it’s important to give myself credit for all of them.
