We have all heard that we shall learn from our mistakes, to avoid repeating them. The truth is we don’t and now there is science to prove it. New research shows that we learn from our successes, not our mistakes and I believe this is especially true when it comes to weight loss. If you have tried to lose weight time after time and have ended up with nothing but the weight piling back on, you already know that you don’t learn from your mistakes. What you need to do is stop focusing on what you shouldn’t do, but learn from what you do right.
