Imagine approaching weight loss as if there was no such thing as failure. Failure creates fear and it also creates permission to keep failing. Try instead to measure everything by degrees of success. For example, think about this familiar scenario (you may recognise yourself in it).
There are two people who both have a goal to lose weight. Person A eats a cookie, immediately feels that he has failed in his weight loss goals, so eats the rest of the packet and feels sorry for himself. Person B also eats a cookie, thoroughly enjoys it and sees it for what it is in the context of her weight loss goals - no big deal. She remains positive and later goes for a run.
Person A has bowed to the idea of failure and given up; Person B has remained positive and stayed on track towards her goals.
Before starting any weight loss or exercise plan you must consult a medical professional.
