What is the difference between desperation and determination? The difference comes from having a positive, meaningful direction. The energy of desperation is wasted on self-pity and negativity. That can lead to destructive behavior, which only makes the sense of desperation worse.

By applying that energy toward a positive purpose, you can make

If you've caused metabolic damage as a result of following starvation diets or losing weight too rapidly in the past, it can be extremely difficult to achieve any further fat loss at all.

Success is a consistent pattern more than it is an isolated event. It is the way you live rather than some object or experience you acquire.
