Deep breathing

When you feel stressed and it's making you think of food, do some deep breathing. Fill up your lungs with air the same manner in which a vase would be filled with water. Visualize the air filling up from the bottom, and when you exhale, empty starting at the top. This essentially forces you to be mindful. Good meditation.

Try Compassion

If you were talking with a good friend who got off track, you would be kind and compassionate. You would encourage your friend to keep trying and that success will come. Try that compassion with yourself. If you stick with it, you will make!

Getting back on track; easier than I thought

Getting back on track has been easier than I thought it would be. Instead of trying to take my weight loss goal and the time from here to there as a big chunk and a long way off, I'm tracking my food one day at a time, one meal at a time. Thank you Spark People!

Perspective to get back on Track

If you got a traffic ticket, you wouldn't spend the whole day breaking traffic laws. So why would you blow the whole day over a slice of pizza? by Beth Donovan 2009

Time to get back on track.

A toad trip or visit to relatives for a few days can really shake up my routine. I want to be congenial so I eat what is served. The hard thing is to get back to my routine when I come home. First, it is important to eat a healthy breakfast and make sure to have healthy snacks in between meals. Don't allow yourself to get hungry and be tempted to reach for a munchies. I like to have some vegetable soup or a V8. An apple sliced with almond or peanut butter helps. emoticon

Don't Judge Yourself - Just Move Forward

When you have eaten more than your recommended calories or skipped a workout or ate that full bag of chips, don't beat yourself up! Still be sure to track whatever you ate, but move on. Everyone slips. Everyone! Keep your overall goals in mind (go over them after the slip-up) and look forward to the next day. No matter how many times you "fall", you can always get back up and still be successful.

Don't Wait for Tomorrow: Start Today

When you put off diet change, exercise, etc till tomorrow you will find that tomorrow never comes. You forget, find an excuse, or just loose motivation. Start today; even if it's drinking an extra glass of water of going for a short walk after a meal; you'll thank yourself tomorrow.

Never Give Up

If I get off track, I do not berate myself. As soon as I can, I get back on track. Broken ankle - gained weight, choice is to give up - NO! Start again. Losing family members to cancer...do not give in....keep going....give myself as much grace as I would give a friend ..start again. I am not a quitter emoticon

Don't beat yourself up

I take a warm shower + drink lots of water + journal about the experience. The next day I eat normally and continue to hydrate.

Get back up!

Everyone will fall. It is important to forgive yourself, and get back to moving forward ASAP!
