After a long work day, I had a salad and chicken burger at home. Then a bowl of cereal for dessert!

I agree with everyone, Just get back to it today we all have slip ups. And I so know what you mean how your hard work goes out the door with just a snack or a few bites. It's so hard to get this weight off and learn the good and bad for your body. emoticon

I agree with everyone's good advice - our new lifestyle needs to be livable - not so restrictive that we can't ever go to town a bit:). My weight loss graph looks like a stock market ticker (I can't claim credit for the analogy, but it's true). It took me over a year to lose 50 pounds (with an average of 0.6 lost per week), but I've kept it off for 10 years now by continuing to track what I eat and work on my fitness goals.

And right now I'm working to lose a few work stress/vacation pounds that I put on. Remember, we're all in this for the long haul, and are here to support each other. Just hang in there, and all will be well.

My feelings exactly! So far I have not overdone anything but that is not necessarily because I am such a great planner. I have a religious fast that I am on right now and I can not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset for 19 days. I don't want to get up early enough to cook a big breakfast so I make veggie and fruit smoothies (beet and pear smoothies yumm). At night I have to eat around 1000 calories to get to my nutrition level so a big meal, and no time or desire to overeat. SO--- no snacking at night or during the day makes keeping within my calories easy. The challenge will be after the 21st when the fast stops - I do plan at least one day of indulgence - but because I have gotten out of the habit and my stomach has probably shrunk, I'm not too worried.

Just dust yourself off and begin again. These things happen.

Truly, none of us are perfect. Personally I am trying to be a realist about the fact that I will make mistakes from time to time. My goal is to recover quickly and not beat myself up about it. I mean is it realistic to think that I am never going to splurge again ever? Nope - not a chance. So I am trying to keep things in perspective and focus on what I do well. A bad day? No biggie - just recover and get back in a routine of eating healthy. This is about healthy overall life choices - remember progress - not perfection.

Just because you "fell off the wagon" doesn't mean you need to let the wagon run over you. We all do it at times! Just get back on the wagon and hold on tight until the next bump in the road.

Take an extra walk of something to help with the guilt pangs. I fell off the wagon big time last Monday evening with pizza and at the end of the week still lost weight!
