Take a deep breathe. Everything is going to be alright. You did NOT derail any of your efforts at weight loss and good health because you over ate today. Give yourself credit for doing so well over the last two months !! You've already lost 22 pounds. that's fantastic !!
Okay... so you had a lapse. Does that mean you should chuck in everything ? NOPE. Don't look at weight loss with an all or nothing mentality. What to do ? You ate the food. You log the food. You move on. Today is another day. If you eat right 5 out of 7 days this week, you're still doing way better than the average American. So, don't beat on yourself because you weren't perfect yesterday.
You were human. We all have days like these. they happen. So, you log them and move on with your life. Don't worry. Everything really will be fine. Just do your best to eat more mindfully for the rest of the week.
I had a slight downward spiral today and it does not stop! you can only work around it!. you need to find a way to hold your self accountable. I have decided to do something like when i lose 10lbs i can have a piece of cake or a candy bar so i am not totaly deprived but it gives me something to lookforward to. Someone else in another post mentions paying your self a dollar and at the end of the month going to get a manicure or a new shirt or maybe a date to the movies something to reward your self if you mess up you lose all the money you have earned.
Keep your head up and dont let this day drag you down! Take today as a day of oops! and start fresh tomorrow morning with a positive attitude and a smile.
