This week was bad. I need to start over. I made my husband cookies yesterday, his request and ate some of the dough and cookies. Last night we had company to play games. I had peanuts and refused to let my husband buy M&M's. My friend brought brownies! Today is a new week and a new day to begin again. I do work out 4x per week at the gym but have not had time to record minutes. I have trouble following the nutrition tracker so record long hand in a notebook.

Tleemoore, Give yourself a break, HOLY COW do you have a lot going on in your life right now. So - start small, find one thing that you can do consistently every day this week. Like - I don't know, eating a salad for lunch or finding time for a 15 minute walk. Dont overwhelm yourself with where you used to be at, focus on where you are at today and what you can do today! I feel your pain, I had 2 teenagers and a small child in the house at one point, it was complete chaos day in and day out - so find that small thing you can do for yourself to change back into a healthy lifestyle.

I have come to a screeching stop with my weight loss and in fact have gone in reverse. Stress from Navy retirement, lack of money, new baby and two teens has made it to where I don't feel like doing anything other then keeping up with the house, kids, and bills. I was at 163 for seven years and before that 220. I am now at 190 and struggling to get on track again and feel as if I have no will power to do so. I use to run and weight train and do all sorts of cardio and I can't seem to get that back. Any suggestions on how to get started up again and feel as though I can do this again and not have an epic fail.
I was doing so well..not eating sweets..them..one piece of candy, one doughnut cookies...and before I knew it...I lost control again...I got down for awhile and didn't care until the weight started going up again...I think I'm back on track...I've done pretty well the past couple of days...Hope I can hang on!
Fall seven times...get up eight.
Be still and know I am God

Good luck getting back on track! Every temptation is a new chance. Sometimes when there are more temptations in one day, it can become exhausting to keep making the right choice. Hang in there, we feel ya :)

I'm with @DINARD2...just pick yourself back up. I don't see days I'm off schedule as 'bad' anymore as I'm still doing better than when I started so I keep moving!
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
Me! Last week was horrible. The scales are up 4.5 lbs and I'm only thankful it wasn't worse!
Going to work hard this week. Doing a "sugar fast" for the week, eating clean and getting my activity in. Going to be hard because we have a gospel meeting and I'll be in the car and in church services a lot.
Try not to think of it as "starting over," but just picking up where you left off. As Spark People says, "one step backwards, two steps forwards." Everyone as set backs. Just get right back on the horse with your very next meal.

This past week I spent over 30 hours preparing for Bible School. I was off of my meal routine and people had cookies and candy just sitting there asking me to indulge. So I did. I was not strong!!! I totally blew it and feel the need to start this challenge over. Anyone else have a bad sugar week???
