Thinking about change, planning for change, and making your change happen all take work. Keeping a change going can be just as hard. It takes time to make it your new "normal." And you can expect to have a few tough times.
To make this change part of your new lifestyle, keep your change skills ready at all times. It's good to keep asking yourself:
If you do slip or relapse, don't get down on yourself. You can bounce back. Nearly everyone who succeeds with change has some slips along the way. It's normal.
Remember, things won't always be perfect. But there's a big difference between slipping up and giving up.
