Why do I punish myself when I'm not perfect?
It's like I need to prove that I have no self control when it comes to food.
I take 2 steps forward and 5 steps back at times.
I weighed myself on my mom's scale and there is a 4 pound difference from hers to mine.
I thought I'd lost 13 pounds when in essence I only lost 9 over the last few weeks.
But heck I've started the journey down and that's all that matters!
But I punished myself with Taco Bell and now I feel like crap.
I do this every time.
It will be better next time and then I do it again.
When will I stop pounding my head against a brick wall and accept that I will have slips and falls and not so great days. AAAAHHH!!!!
ok that's my rant for today.

    i crave taco bell too. i made a dish in my slow cooker that has some similar flavors so i can eat that instead. i tend to beat myself up but started to think about how to push and encourage myself instead.

    hey at least you are losing. Keep track of you victories how ever small and ignore (or learn from if appropriate) your largest of mistakes. emoticon emoticon

    lol that's a battle cry. Ok, you ate taco bell, so? Did you order 2 of everything? No? Then consider it a "treat meal" and then rest of the time do healthy options. Personally, I give myself 1 "treat meal" a week, so if we go out I don't feel guilty. Best of luck & stop beating yourself up (lol, there's no calorie burn from that) emoticon
