Melly, melly melly.
I think you did wonderful.
The dinner for your birthday, nothing wrong with that,
A few treats or snacks while on vacation, Nothing wrong with that. Realizing you were free falling and taking the situation in hand, priceless. It sounds like maybe being sick was bringing on some emotional eating.
So instead of beating yourself up, take this ribbon for a job well done.
You look great, and again sorry for causing worry.

Happy Belated Birthday!
First, your hair looks stunning!!
I hate that you had the horrible experience with the food; but yet am glad you had it. Because it does show you (as i know it would me) that I can't have that kind of food at my disposal because I'd just go crazy. Out of sight out of mind is good.... but if it's there, I'm going to eat it!
I have no doubt at all that it was nothing more than a blip on your continued road to success!
I look forward to catching up with you October 1st and am SO glad I got to "see" you before checking out tomorrow.
Take care; be good and I'll see you in 30 days!

This is the first v-blog of yours that I was able to watch! I love it!
First, Happy Birthday! I am sorry I missed it and please know I am sending you belated birthday candles and good wishes.
Second, I am glad you dodged the hurricane bullet and had a good vacation in spite of feeling yucky and having some unplanned food stops. The thing that I think is wonderful is that you reigned the food piece in. THAT is what this is all about. You fall off. You get back on. Rinse and repeat.
I think notaboutheface hits the nail on the head, the issue will always be there, so you always have to be ready to deal with it. You dealt with it! Woo! Hoo!
I know I shouldn't be giving advice because I have a long ways to go and haven't kicked this yet but I do know that I AM going to make mistakes. My history is proof. The difference this time is that I am going to stick with it in spite of how bad I muck it up. Fall off. Get on. Rinse and Repeat. What's the point of staying on the ground? More lbs? More illness? Feeling tired? Clothes that don't fit? If I never lose another lb. at least I will be a healthier person. That will have to be enough reason to stick with it.
Kudos to you for getting rid of the stuff and MOVING ON! I look forward to operation maintenance and stability!

Happy Belated Birthday! Good for you for getting rid of the junk that was tempting you, it happens. Unfortunately anyone whose ever had an issue with food will *always* have an issue with food. It never goes away, it's only managed. As long as you know that going in, you can be ready for it when it rears its head.
