You will never be perfect. You will have bad days (sometimes even bad weeks) but the key is to just dust off and get back on. We are all trying to commit to a full lifestyle change, and it is HARD. I do great for a long time, then this last week, BAD. I was still working out, but not as often and not eating great. It STINKS. I have no idea what happened but it was awful, I felt so out of control. The good part for me is the ability to stop. In the past, I would have likely just gained the weight back. Not this time. I'm determined. We don't know what might trigger a bad day, or anything, but we can ALWAYS get back up. good luck!

Thank you for that encouragement, that really made me feel better. I can do this and I will do it.

I hate those days. You have to try to find a way to get your emotions in check, but that can take too long in a crisis like this. Fortunately, a McDonald's cheeseburger (if it's just the regular one, not a Big Mac or otherwise) is not THAT bad in the grand scheme of things. Pick yourself right back up and do better at the next meal. You can do this!

It's tough, especially with depression and migraines. Yikes. And there will always be setbacks. What you do with them is what matters. Do you let it derail you from your healthy journey? Or do you get back up and jump back on track?

Thanks to both of you that replied. Today is a new day and I am going to get it right today. I keep having migraines and I think I may have gotten a little depressed yesterday because I am just tired of having the migraines not alone the pain that comes from them. No I don't have that time of the months any longer they stopped years ago and then started back up so I just had that taken care of all together. So I am just going to put it on the migraine and depression.

Make a fresh new resolve right this moment and know that every choice you make will either lead you closer to your goals or not. Even taking a some deep breaths can help reset your thinking in a direction of progress. Listen to the part of you that is your own best friend and wants the highest quality life for you. Arm yourself with positive affirmations and have reminders posted to nudge you in a positive direction. Decide you are worth the effort it takes to gain self-mastery. emoticon

We all have bad days and some of us do tend to eat badly after. Being off one day isn't going to throw your whole groove off. Is it just today you've been having a hard time? Are you maybe starting that time of the month? Not only will that on occasion bring me down emotionally, but physically too (and I ITCH to binge). Don't eat outside your meal plan any more today and just continue on eating healthier tomorrow. :)

having a bad day emotionally. Emotions are running wild for some reason and I just don't feel like doing anything. My co-worker brought me a cheeseburger back from mcdonalds and yes i ate it now i feel worst than i did at first. in my mind i want to go home and exercise then again i feel like a tug a war is going on because the other part of me just want to go home and crawl in the bed.
