We all want that perfect figure, but beating ourself up is no help. Try to lighten up a little. I take my new lifestyle very seriously but if I have something I shouldn't I just try to overcome it, move on and try to make better choices the next time.
The idea is learn from our mistakes and learn to make healthy choices we can live with not to feel deprived and hungry.
.. just do it NOW! Don´t wait for that Monday or "perfect" time after that specific party. Now is the time! Go out to the kitchen and clear out all bad foods right away and instead of sitting here right now, just put your trainers on and take a walk, no matter how short!
You´ve got to learn to eat wisely during parties and weekends anyway, so you might as well just learn right away!
