I messed up today as we'll, looking forward to a new positive day tomorrow.

Today was a bad day for me a lot of emotional eating. I will have to start fresh tomorrow.

It takes practice to resist old habits and substitute new ones. If you keep recording and analyzing your tracker for weak spots, you'll be able to succeed in changing your habits. You can do it!

I had a bad day too - it was the chocolates somebody sent me! (Apart from that I ate quite healthily!) But looking back over the week I had more good days than bad days so, even if the scales aren't showing the difference I know that during the last week I was going the right way.

And your week will show that you're going the right way. It may or may not show on the scales in the first week or so but you will soon start to see the difference and that will motivate you to do even better.

Have you tried tracking other nutrients like calcium, iron, fibre etc? I often put another nutrient or two in just for a few weeks so I can see if I need to be adding different foods to my diet. Hope today goes better for you. Hang on in there because I think you're doing well.

I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

Thanks! I have been tracking my food for about a week now and that is why I think I am more aware of what I am eating. Thanks for that good advice..

Don't beat yourself up over a bad day or a bad meal. Just being aware that your choices weren't so great is progress. Work on doing better with the next meal.

Try tracking your food and think about what you could have substituted with a healthier choice. Then try to set yourself up for success by having those healthier choices prepped and ready for tomorrow.

Good luck with tomorrow.

today has not been such a good day for me today nutrition wise. I seem to be a little more aware for the not so good stuff but I haven't quite mastered that resisting part of it yet. I really like that I can share all of my feeling here with all of you I thing that is really helping me, so thanks for that!! emoticon
