Default It's not about being perfect

One of my all-time favorite quotes is "Strive for progress, not perfection." I remind myself of this every time I feel I'm getting too obsessed with my weight loss goals or if I feel like I'm giving up. Don't get stuck on how much you want to lose, focus on just doing it. Every step you take forward is one less step you take back :)

That's a really good quote bigbobby and I think it's important to remember it. I think all of us are a little guilty of striving for perfection. We all want to look a certain way and we want to look that way as fast as we can so we work hard - too hard at first - to get there and then get discouraged when the results aren't what we want as fast as we want them. Progress is way more important than perfection because with progress you'll eventually get there, with perfection, you'll never be satisfied.

That's exactly it bonniekins. Sometimes I know it's important to push myself but other times I feel that it's more important that I just do something and allow myself to be pleasantly surprised by the results.

I agree that it's not about being perfect, it's about doing what you go to do your way. As long as you keep doing it you're making progress. Find satisfaction in what you achieve, no matter how small. Don't wait to fulfill your expectations or you'll never feel satisfied and happy with the progress you make.

I also agree but I think it's also important to push yourself a little. While you don't need to be perfect, you should also try to make the best effort you can. You don't want to get to a point where you just make excuses so you don't end up doing stuff that's important simply because you don't want to do it.

I agree Jenny25. I also think it's important not to seek perfection but it is still important to challenge yourself and push your limits every once in a while. If you let yourself off the hook too much, you could end up harming your goals in the long run. Not aiming for perfection doesn't mean no hard work.

Of course progress is important and it is important that you don't cut yourself so much slack that you start making excuses for not doing things. I'm not talking about making excuses and giving yourself a pass or going too easy on yourself. I'm talking about not trying to aim for perfection so that when you don't achieve what you had in mind, you're not so upset that you feel like giving up. Seeking perfection and making excuses not to do something are two entirely different things in my world.
