In a recent article with Good Housekeeping, Chrissy Metz discussed her weight journey, and how she stays positive in the midst of her struggles.

“So often if something isn’t perfect, we go ‘I quit!’ That’s not conducive to forward progress, and it’s really about progress, not perfection,” she adds about not losing her spirit when trying to be healthier.

Chrissy explains the importance of learning to not beat yourself up about your food choices if you slip up, but rather try to understand why you are feeling the way you do, and why food would soothe that emotion.

“Those people (the haters) are in the cheap seats; they’re not in the ring with the blood, sweat and tears, and they have no idea what my daily life is like. Let me know when you’ve walked in my shoes, but oh, you’re in the cheap seats,” she tells Good Housekeeping.
