Falling Off The Wagon


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I've gotten tired of beating my self up when I get off plan with diet or exercise. I have learned to be more forgiving with myself. If I do have an "off" day, I acknowledge the missed day and pick up where I left off instead of quitting. I end up better off in the long run because I get back to it and I feel better reminding myself that I am human!

It is much easier to resume the plan the next day rather than sulk and eat more! emoticon

    Gread advice. There is no point beating ourselves up about something that is in the past. Simply learn from it and get back on track. emoticon

    I totally agree with you. An off day is already in the past...
Talking to myself, since I had an off day today. :-)
