Thank you all... I just needed a moment to vent a bit... I did feel much better about the slip after running the Turkey Trot and watching portion sizes on Thanksgiving (including the small slice of pie!).

I know exactly how you feel. You would think we would not go off the wagon knowing ahead of time just how bad we will feel later both psychologically and physically. Oh, that fatal attraction called food! We just gotta re-direct ourselves and move forward with Sparkpeople by our side.

Spark On!

Forgive yourself, and choose to move forward in the right direction.

I'm going to tell you what I tell all new members and those trying to live a healthier lifestyle,"Don't look at good health or weight loss with an all or nothing mentality". If the only healthy thing you did today was drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction.

One less than perfect day or two of eating WILL NOT make or break your healthy lifestyle. There are 365 days in the year. If you're eating right most of the time, you're going to be fine.

Good health is not "all or nothing". Every little bit does make a difference. You are not a bad person or an unhealthy one because you ate a little too much fried food. The bloated feeling will pass.

Stop beating yourself up because you're not perfect. You don't have to be perfect to be healthy. Enjoy your turkey trot ! NO GUILT. it's thanksgiving. BE GRATEFUL for your good health.

Hi! I'm wondering if you are expecting too much, too soon. It is a very common phenomena. What has happened has already happened so don't go stressing over it. It will only upset you, not undo it! Just pick yourself up and start again, but use Baby Steps not go hard out with a myriad of changes all at once.

Where it comes to tomorrow, you can still enjoy all your treats - just take smaller portions and if possible, take your time eating it. I don't see why you have to skip the pie if you enjoy pie. And now the final tip - ENJOY YOURSELF after you have read this link:-)

Ah... I've done so well all week, and now the day before the biggest "food fest" day of the year, I fell off the wagon, and was then trampled on by fried foods and desserts in all different shapes and sizes... Now I have to run a Turkey Trot tomorrow feeling bloated and disappointed! Argh! Now my "cushion" for tomorrow is severely narrowed! I may have to skip the pie... Boo!

End Rant!

Anyone else have one of "those" days?
