I figured... Nobody's started a victory forum yet, so I might as well :)
Here's my current victory: I have been in a SLUMP for several days, feeling particularly lonely and ignored and, as a result, depressed and entirely unmotivated. I didn't want to track my food, I didn't want to go for walks, I didn't want to listen to happy music.
Therein lies the victory - I didn't track my food, but I didn't eat everything in sight. I didn't work out, but I lifted weights a couple of times here at work while I sat at my desk answering phone calls. And no, I didn't listen to peppy happy music, but I didn't allow myself to listen to my melancholy mixes 24/7.
And now... I'm back! I'm not beating myself up, I'm not making myself go back and attempt to enter everything into my nutrition log, I'm not pretending I've been okay... I'm just jumping back on the bandwagon - and I still managed to lose two more pounds!
Hey Slump? Yeah, you - consider yourself defeated :)
Anybody else survive a slump? Note - if you are still here, you survived - even if you DID eat a lot, gain weight, etc - the fact that you are back on SparkPeople is the most important thing!
