I have the same problem. I might only go off for one or two days, but it was a struggle when I realized it and got back on. For me, routine has been the best way to refocus myself quickly. When I break the routine is when I have a bad day; trigger the routine, and then keep pushing ahead. My usual day starts with a green smoothie and a walk, so when I catch myself going back to old habits, I use one of those to "start over," no matter what time of day it is.

I am hoping that SparkPeople will allow me to get on track to lose the 40 lbs I gained after quiting smoking. Wish me luck to get motivated. I have done my 20 minutes of exercise.

Life does have it's ups and downs and when you have a disappointing day it is best to release it and tell yourself a new story. Reliving failures just keeps that defeating energy alive. Let it go and make today a healthy, thriving and fun day!!
Seems as though when I get off track I find it very difficult to get back on. Often times I undo, in a very short time, the progress I've made up until that point. I know we all have bad days occasionally, but how do we get right back on before doing so much damage? What do you do?
