Hey, glad you're back! I left for a long time, myself...feels so good to get back on track. I like your mindset in that you won't let your slip ups keep you from your goal to be health once again. I have to keep this in mind for myself...so many times if I lose my step, I think, Well, now I may as well give up on this day and splurge. For the past week and half I have been picking myself up and moving forward. I missed, gosh, I think 5 days of exercise...but kept the healthy eating all but one day...its just something you have to continue to work at, right?! Anyways, nice to have you here!
I read that if junk food is the temptation, distract yourself with something else for 10mn., it is supposed to subside...(unless there is mint/chocolate chip ice cream in the freezer!)

I have been on and off spark for longer than I want to say lol. It's crazy to look back on my stuff, and see how long it's been. For the past year I have been trying to be a 100% clean eater, but it has been a struggle. Whether is was my heart crushing break up (emotional eater), my new found allergy (gluten), or my super busy schedule; I have become lazy and fell into my old ways, and solely reached for convenience. Everyone has slip ups, and I am human. I will not let this get in the way, or affect me starting my new journey. I look forward to being a part of this group. It looks like it's actually engaging, unlike some of the other groups I have been apart of. Support is one of the most important thin self, and I have proved to myself that I can't do this a lone.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
