Way over!

Friday, May 04, 2012

So I over ate today by like 600 calories or so. I'm so upset. I hate that it is so easy to overeat and so hard to eat healthy and wisely. I hate that it is so easy to do nothing and so hard to get moving. I don't want to feel overweight anymore, I don't want to cry about the way I look anymore! Why does it only take one day of backsliding to make you feel completely horrid? I mean can you make up for it the next day by working out more and eating less? Does it balance out or is it like starting over each day? AAAhhhh....It's so horrible. I thought I wanted to eat a little more or have freedom of choice, whatever. All I did was eat more than I should have. Now I feel bloated, fat, unhappy with myself for making bad choices when I have been working so hard! Why does it have to be so easy to mess up? emoticon

    Sometimes you have to back up to get the forward momentum to clear the next hurdle. That hurdle, apparently, is the lesson you just learned; to be diligent.

    Ready? Set? GOAL!

    Take it to the Lord daily and ask the Holy Spirit to empower you daily.

    One day of over eating does NOT mean you've failed. Get back on plan today. It's going to be okay. It takes 3500 extra calories for 1 pound. So getting back on today will make your slip hardly noticeable! You can do this!

    Hi CRYDEN321,

    Don't hate yourself. We all have overeaten. All you should do is not do it everyday and get back on track. Yes, exercise extra minutes and get back on track and eat healthy. When I started with SP I purchased a pedometer that keeps me motivated to get this weight off. Tracking my steps really helped me. So get back up and start eating healthy. Drinking water and green tea helps a lot too.

    Keep up the good work.

    Just hang in there and it will get better.

    Let's get this weight off together. emoticon emoticon

    It takes 3500 calories to make (or lose) a pound. So it absolutely will balance out. I would not aim to make up for it all in one day but you can add a few extra minutes on your workouts for the next few days and stay at the low end of you range and...voila...balanced. As for being easy to mess up, it is and it isn't. We aren't going to be perfect every day and should not discredit our successes by focusing on the backslides. It takes three weeks to make a habit so keep at it and it will get easier.
