There are a lot of slips between the cup and the lip if you are trying to lose some weight. This can lead to frustration, discouragement, and worse. The mistakes you make and the failures you experience can cause you to make some pretty harsh self-evaluations.
Into the fray comes compassion. This is where you find a way to accept your experiences no matter how difficult or troublesome they may be. You are kind to yourself rather than critical. You treat yourself with warmth and understanding and thereby promote the psychological strength, which you need to go on losing unwanted weight.
