Fear of failure is not a positive motivation; it is a negative stimulant and keeps your mind focused on thinking about failure. If you are racing on the track, a good driver does not think about the different ways he can lose, that would be counterproductive.

Sure, you eat your recommended portion and sizes at the right meal time. But, what about in between meals? If you have that tempting bag of pretzels at your secret stash or a sumptuous rack of muffin at the pantry, chances are you have been cheating after meals. Add all the numbers and your calorie intake sure go up intensely.
Serve however you like. It is delicious as is, or you can put a little butter on top, sprinkle with some nuts, or add some cream. I did alter my version a little bit. Instead of the raisins I topped my oatmeal with blueberries after I removed it from the oven.
