Start slow. Even if you've been doing well before, once you "fall off" sometimes taking it slow again is the best way to get back on it. I find that when I find myself off track, trying to go at the full force that I was going before getting off track seems like too much, and I tend to lose it after a day or two, even though the pattern I established before was consistent.
The whole month of March up until last Sunday had been pretty terrible for me. I would leave stuff out, or just not measure my food. I reset my page like 5 times and then I'd do it again. I finally had had enough, and reset my page for the last time last Sunday, and vowed to count and write everything down no matter what the damage. I have only managed to stay within calorie range 2 days since then, but I consider it a success because I'm taking a step in the right direction. I also hadn't gone to the gym in quite some time, but today I just made myself. I really didn't want to, and I had to beg myself and remind myself of how good I always feel after exercising. Even if it's a 20 minute walk, it's worth it, and you'll feel a lot better. The hardest part is facing that "suck it up" feeling, and doing it. I guess that's also the feeling of swallowing my pride.
You can do it!
Don't ever let anyone else tell you who you can be
