Nell, you are so on target. Not being "perfect" in what we set out to do is what makes us human. It is what we choose to do with those curve balls that make all the difference in the world. They are opportunities to learn, and be prepared for other times when things don't go as we would like. The need for support is so important. I need it more now the longer I continue this journey. You are so right, when you say that those not traveling this path don't understand. It is like being depressed and told "to get over it". That is why I really like this site. It is made of individuals who understand. They are wise from experience and willing to offer support and encouragement. It is a good and safe place to vent. I wish everyone continued success, and the encouragement not to beat up on yourself for being human.

Teresa

Why is it that everyone assumes that slipping off program means you're a bad person? It just means you are unprepared to face a certain situation.

A slip is an opportunity to decide what you will do the next time that situation comes up (and it will).

Will power needs to be directed at something else rather than gutting out a desire for cheetos or second helpings. Call a fellow dieter and weep. (Ever hear the phrase 200 pound telephone?) A regular person will just say "if you don't want to eat it, don't", which drives most of us back to the cheetos; call a fellow dieter. She can help you throw food down the disposal. Do SOMETHING POSITIVE, and you won't have to beat up on yourself.

Every slip is a learning opportunity if you take it. The one thing it is NOT, is proof that you are hopeless.

I appreciate your uplifting message.Surrounding ourselves with positive influences make a great deal of difference in our lives. Being surrounded by supportive caring individuals instead of "drainers" is often an important step we must choose to make. This site is full of encouragement and positive feedback. It is helping me so much. I appreciate each and every one of the members.

Teresa
