A Few Days Off

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

A few days off won't kill me. They may set me back on losing as quickly as I had planned to but that won't kill me.

When pay day rolls around once a month I tend to get with the junk food a little too much as I guess some people might think that is some thing bad. But I think of it as just a little set back . The sooner I get back on track the better it is. This time it took me 5 days, that is better then last time. So I feel pretty good about myself right now.

Feeling good about myself is a new thing for me. Before when I went off track I would put myself down and think bad about myself. Now I just let it slide. I had read an article about treating yourself like a friend and that is what I am doing. A friend makes misstates but we don't jump all over them and call them names. No we give them helpful advice and support them the best we can.

I am just as good as any friend I have and worth all the good things I can do to help myself. So I am going to take care of myself and support myself in this effort to get healthier.

    I don't take "days off" because there is nothing that is ever prohibited for me to eat, if that's what I really want. Usually it isn't, but by not having a "good food. bad food" mentality, I don't set myself up to binge.

    Good attitude! My problem with days off is that they tend to spiral into more days off. I've just come out of a couple of those and am going to stay on track the rest of the week. The good thing about "bad" days is that they're not stopping us! emoticon
