Major Speed Bump

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Just when I think I have gotten the hang of it....that self control thing that keeps you steady. Them WHAMO, I got a major chocolate urge for calories I did not have left in the bank. Thus far, I went over 250 calories yesterday, which has left me feeling very BLUE today emoticon . I am struggling to get back on the horse today with all of the self doubt, and feelings of let down for my self-esteem. Thoughts?
Thanks for all the feedback,

    Just get back up and keep going. It is like a wave at
the ocean. It goes up and sometimes comes down.
Just tell yourself that you will get back up and keep going.

    I am going to pick up my luggage and move down the road to my next stop!

    Thanks to ALL so much for helping me realize that getting back into the game is what counts. I've only been pacing myself for the last two weeks, and I'm terrified that if I deviate from the goal even a smidge, then I am at risk for returning to my previous behavior. This is partially bc it is so easy to do, and it's way harder to stick to the plan. Thanks again all for listening to my banter! I'm thrilled to call y'all my PEEPS!

    This is my story. Last night, because dinner was gross (I literally only ate my salad), I raided the kitchen. And I mean raided. A double portion of ice cream, then I baked cookies. Ok, that's a lie. I ate half the dough and baked one giant cookie. I mean this sucker was the size of a frying pan. And I ate about half of it. If it wasn't for the girlfriend and kids, I would have eaten the whole thing, I promise.

But today is a whole new calorie "bank" (I love your term!) and I can only work on today. I know what my triggers were yesterday and I just have to avoid them today.

I'm sorry you feel down, but be lifted with the new gift of today.

    That is definitely a small misstep and you should not beat yourself up about it. I have manag to go far beyond my calorie range several times. I try to learn from it and move on. Hang in there!

    When we do that...and we all do...perspective is the key! We can go to the daily feedback button, click on "see more" and then search for the monthly average (rather than just one tough day)to give us a better idea of our patterns. It's the patterns that determine the direction of our movement. You're okay, just get back on the horse! We can do this!!

    Agree - it's just a small misstep. Forgive yourself and move forward. We've all been there! emoticon
