The Pendulum

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Hmm. A month in and I feel fantastic! My clothes are starting to feel better, I can move around more fluidly, people are starting to comment here and there...

But these last 3 days have been abysmal with my diet:

Brownies, cakes, beer, candy, pizza...

When I analyze why I would do such a thing, I can't tell if its self sabotage, or because I just love the food so much, or perhaps a reward for my good month? All I know is that history has shown that I swing up...and then I swing down. I have worked waaay too hard these last 30 days to start from zero (or go in the negative) again.

Don't worry, I am not beating myself up it's just the awareness of what tends to happen with me when I make progress. 3 Days will not derail me if I choose to press on the way I have been prior.

I choose to press on.

    You are absolutely right; don't let a step back prevent you from going further. Sounds like you have made a lot of progress over time.

    You're aware of what's happening & you have chosen to press on, therefore, you'll choose better the next time for rewards. emoticon

    WooHoo! Even if you have a bad day every once in a while, every new day is a chance to press on!
