Unfortunately, no one has an unending supply of willpower. If you are struggling, then you will have to avoid the temptations you find irresistible. If you're serious about losing weight and keeping it off, you might need to cut ties with certain situations or overindulging frenemies, at least for a little while, maybe forever.
Forgiving yourself is another way of giving yourself permission to get out of your own way. To see the truth for what it is, rather than hide behind it. If we take self-forgiveness moments, it changes our perspective, and therefore our approach to life. Our mood lifts, and we return to feeling happy and having that inner calm again.
We make sure you eat your vegetables and cross our fingers that you will sleep through the night. We encourage you to say "please" and share your toys. These are important lessons, but you will soon learn that our hopes for you are much bigger than the day to day tasks that take up so much of our times as parents.
