CAROLYN227NY - I completely understand how you're feeling. Lately I can't seem to get past the 10 lb mark without sabatoging myself with those same exact thoughts.
I always think that I can cheat one time and "work it off" later, but then I go and end up gaining the 10 lbs back I worked so hard to lose.
I wish I had advice for you on how to overcome this, but just like you, this is something I still struggle with and am working on. The only thing I can think of (for both of us) is to keep ourselves accountable.
Whenever we get that urge we need to come here to Spark People and post on the boards what we're feeling, and while we're at it, grab a big cup of water to drink at the same time. Then hopefully by then, that feeling will be gone and we'll feel better. (I haven't tried this yet, but who knows, it may work). :)
I'm sorry I'm not much help. Just know that you're not in this struggle alone. *Big Hugs*

It's HARD being fat. It's HARD losing weight. It's HARD maintaining. Choose YOUR hard!
This is really hard for me!!! I had lost weight before, i think it was 10-15 pounds with hydroxycut. Then I decided that I can cheat here, cheat there and there I go gaining all the weight back. Then I decide to lose weight with no drugs such eat right and exercise I whine up losing 12 pounds! and that was the first time i ever lost weigh in my life and again i thought to myself if i eat this I'll just go to the gym and work it off or if I miss going to the gym I'll just make it up the next day. Now I am starting all over again and I want to lose more than 10 pounds and keep it off. I am tired of giving myself excuses after excuses and I definitely let my emotions drive my eating patterns and dictate if i should exercise.... HELP ME! I would like some points on what I should do.
