Fo'gettabout it.

Everyone gets off track at some point. Don't beat yourself up! Take a deep breath, allow yourself to be human, and go back to the plan.

Forgive yourself!

Wherever you've been, whatever you've done, whatever you weigh or whatever you ate that you shouldn't have...stop right now, take a deep breath and let it go. You're here, aren't you? You're looking for help and you're taking action just by reading this and being on this web site.

So FORGIVE yourself! Today is a new day and every day that you stick with your plan is a new day!

Even thin people have days when they over eat

One part of forgiving myself when I over eat is to look at what thin people do and try to copy it. If a thin person has an over eating day, they bump up the exercise and have a few lower calorie days to compensate for it. This is a "maintenance" strategy, but even in weightoss, it is easier for me if I see it as a one day delay in my goal instead of as a failure.

Be Kind

I know I must be kind to other people, but sometimes I forget that I need to be kind to myself. I can be my own worst enemy. I must remember to treat myself the way that I would want others to treat me! With Compassion and Understanding!!

Forgive yourself

If you miss the mark, eat too much, slack on the exercise, forget to track, whatever: Forgive yourself. Don't let it deter you from the goal. Pick yourself up, and brush yourself off. You are still in the game! Remember, each day we start with a Zero on the calorie and fitness tracker!

Forgiving Myself

One of the most challenging things to do is to forgive myself for the poor choices that I made that brought me to this circumstance that threatens my good health. It is not a one-time event, rather it is something that must be done daily.

Love and forgive yourself!!

We're all human, and we're living 'lives' while on this health journey. There are times when we will fall off track because of a bad day or a social event etc. The key is to accept it, forgive yourself and get back on track at the very next opportunity...which is always 'now!'

Take a holiday

Every once in a while, a holiday can't hurt!
Easter, Christmas, Birthdays to name a few. Don't be the sourpuss "I'm on a diet - I can't eat that."
Eat healthy, enjoy the company, watch the portions, and don't stress over it. It is a holiday, not everyday.

Forgiving Yourself

We all carry baggage that led us to make the bad decision to overeat. While it's harder to resolve the problems that held us down, we must forgive ourselves for using food as an emotional bandage. Forgiving yourself means accepting your past and accepting you will make mistakes in the future.

forgive today for yesterdays mistakes

If there was something that you ate yesterday that you maybe should have avoided or eaten less of, do better today and forgive yourself for your mistakes from yesterday.

Forgive Yourself

You will slip up and have bad days/weeks/etc. Just acknowledge that you messed up, try to learn from it so it doesn't happen again, and start fresh RIGHT THEN. Guilt, regret, and self-hatred do not help. Love yourself enough to move forward and focus on the now.
