I have seen a lot of sparkpals disappear when they fall off track, never to be seen again. I have had a rough week but I still keep coming here every day and it helps. Don't quit sparking when you start to slip. Keep coming back and keep tracking yourself. You'll be back on track before you know

When ever I fall off track a bit, I tell someone (parent, friend, Sparkfriend) how I fell off track and how I'm planning to get back on track. That gives me accountability for my poor choices and my good ones!
I surround myself with things that keep me on track. That way I always keep my goals in mind and am less likely to fall off track. The more you are reminded of your goal the less likely you are to overeat or skip your workout.
~ I log onto spark people daily to track my food & exercise
~ I keep motivational quotes on my fridge ~ I subscribe to health & fitness magazines ~ I have a graph of my weightloss progress as the background on my computer desktop ~ I watch motivating shows about weightloss, health & fitness ~ I leave comments & messages for my sparkfriends
If I've 'fallen off track,' I sometimes need to 'ease' back on. I find it too hard to dive in head first. I might start back onto Spark, then track food, and then get back to workouts. We're all different but it works for me. Remember, too, it's not all or nothing. We all slip; the important thing is to get back up!!
