Sounds like you have a handle on it! We all slip up - it's what we do about it that makes the difference. Just keep moving forward and eventually we will get there. Have a great day.... emoticon

We all have been through moments like this. For me, it's not about making sure it never happens again-I know that making a promise like that is setting myself up for a major disappointment down the line. It's about how to bounce back after something like that happens. I used to let a slip up like that turn into a bad eating week, before deciding that I better do something about it again. Now, when stuff like that happens, I just get up, forgive myself, and keep going. These things are going to happen. Over the span of a year, is one bad day really going to matter? Probably not.




Don't ever let anyone else tell you who you can be

EDSUNSHINE,

I give all new members and any who will listen to me one piece of advice and it's this,"Don't look at good health or weight loss with an all or nothing mentality". if the only healthy thing you do for yourself today is drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction.

Remember, you don't have to be perfect to be healthy. If you eat right 5 out of 7 days this week, you're still doing better than the average American. Don't strive to be a perfect eater. That's impossible. if you eat right most of the time, that really is fine.

Be kind to yourself as you would to others. You didn't slip. One over indulgent meal or even day's worth of overeating WILL NOT make or break your healthy lifestyle. Try to be mindful when you can, but if you do over eat, that doesn't make you a bad person or an unhealthy one. There will be days we eat more than others. It happens. As long as it doesn't happen every single day, you'll be okay.

Don't go beating yourself up!!! We all have slips occasionally.

I have a question: When you got onto this healthy lifestyle journey, did you cut out ALL the foods that you enjoyed that weren't healthy? Sometimes if we don't allow ourselves the occasional treat, we tend to go way overboard when the opportunity arises. I wouldn't worry about it - just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and tomorrow is a new day :-)

Don't be too hard on yourself. I have been following a healthy lifestyle for almost six years now and that still happens to me occasionally. Just move on and go back to your normal routine. You will show a gain on the scale (mostly water weight from all the extra carbs) but will drop it within 3-4 days. Just don't give up because you had one bad day.

so this isn't a panic situation but i need to just get some stuff out and hear what others have to say. I have been doing so well with my eating and my exercise. measuring things out eating veggies drinking LOTS of water and staying active for at least 30minutes a day. Today in my office there was a retirement party so i came in to say my goodbyes and of course i ended up eating not so good things but just a little bit so thats not great but fine....then i came into work tonight and all the leftovers are in the fridge and i went crazy! I don't know why! I was like ooohhhh sausage cheese dips chips i mean CRAAAAAZY! I now feel like crud both physicly and mentaly. although i know it was one(or two) slip up and it isn't going to ruin the rest of my night. I'm just at a loss how could i allow that to happen. i know this journey won't be easy but i'm not sure how i'm going to make it if i can't get past doin things like this.
