I seem to be able to recover more easily from incidents or days when I am not eating healthily. In the past, an incident of overeating or poor food choice would be a trip wire to a continuing downward spiral until weeks/months later I looked myself in the mirror and started "dieting" yet again.
I've had a few times since starting SP that I've not followed my food plan. The next day, I'd weigh myself, give myself a little pep talk and get back to the plan. This week, I had a couple of days in a row that I didn't follow the plan the whole day. On day 3, I was a little panicked that I was losing control. BUT, I calmed myself down ("this is your life for the rest of your life"), remembered what is past is past and am now back on plan for 3 days.
Bottom line, I seem to be learning better coping skills in dealing with food and what it has meant to me in the past. Thank you SP and all my SP contacts!
