Week 2: Failure or Feedback!

The definition of failure is "a lack of success in or at something". When one encounters something that they have not succesfully accomplished, is it failure? In my past I would say yes, if you don't complete your task then you have failed. This seems black and white, but is it? Today when I stepped on the scales, instead of losing weight, I had gained weight. This really wasn't a surprise, but it was reality. So was this a failure? Did scales tell me today that I failed or did they give me feed back? A wise man told me once that you only fail when you quit. The scales only reflected the behaviors that accomplished in the last week. The scales didn't exactly say exactly what I ate, but the did tell me that what I did in the past 7 days did not achieve the desired results. Failure, I don't think so. Feedback is the truth, the scales don't lie. I must do different. This for me is when I need you! My friends, family, anyone that wants to input.
