Hi- Be gentle with yourself. I am learning what triggers me to turn to sugar, salt and fat. Have you heard of HALT? hungry, angry, lonely or tired. Those are definite triggers for me. I am still learning about eating properly- having a food plan, having people to talk to when I do feel like eating, going for a walk and most important, admitting I am powerless over these foods and trusting that my Higher Power will restore me to sanity. You helped me today by reminding me that I need to do these things everyday if I hope to be healthy and at peace with myself. Thank you and hope you can pick yourself up and get back on track.

you did not fail, you had a blip in the journey. You learned and next time plan to have water available at your desk at all times so you don't have to walk over to the machine.

I agree. We are beautiful work in progress... You will do better tomorrow. emoticon

This is a learning journey... I am learning to eat healthy, to love exercise, but more important, I am learning to love myself.

Ok oops. You made a couple bad choices. Look back and realize why you made those choices and prepare yourself for the next time. There's nothing you can do about what happened, so unless you plan on going backwards quit looking that way.

I once heard it said that sometimes a person's greatest victory comes just steps after their greatest defeat.
So... today is a new day. Prepare for a great day and have your victories!

If it's amazing, it won't be easy. If it's easy it won't be amazing. If it's worth it you won't give up. If you give up you're not worth it.

i failed last night too. insted of water i drink small cup of apple juice. I feel so hungery after one hours but i did not eat any thing. I know i am not hungery it is just another sugar craving. Today, i got up very hungery, i eat my coconut oil 2Tbsp. with full glass of water. i am better now. I need to be 100% sugar free in order to feel better. But i am slipping here and there. I write down every thing i eat when my protein portion is low than i feel hungery.

Instead of hitting yourself over the head for "failing", why not try to think about why this happened. You made a conscious choice to spend money to buy a sugary drink when there were other options available (even a sugar free drink if water was too boring). So what was driving that desire? Were you tired and looking for a "pick me up" from the sugar? Were you angry or upset or stressed? How long prior to this had you had something sweet? Even a piece of fruit? Only you can answer these questions, but I think we need to use our slip ups as tools - clues to detect areas we are weak in and then figure out ways to prevent a repeat next time we are faced with the same stressors.
As for the cake - that's a no brainer - once you have a little sugar you can hardly help to have more - you've awakened the beast.
My suggestion would be to keep a food journal - not to get anal about counting grams or anything, but more to write about what you ate and what was going on in your head and body before and after you ate. Over time you'll see patterns and get clues as to how to protect yourself from more "slips"
