Caving once in awhile is ok as long as once you do it get right back on track and it will not affect anything....it is when we keep going in the wrong direction that hurts us.....we need the little cheat once in awhile to keep us going.....as long as you are getting back on track you will be ok....just refocus.....YOU CAN DO IT! 3377 days ago
Hey...Thanks for commenting on my blog post! Now it's time for me to turn it around and tell YOU that it's going to be okay. Tomorrow's another day. And, yes, it does suck to feel awful about what we've eaten, but I felt that way yesterday and today I feel great! Here's to a better rest-of-today, or a better tomorrow! 3377 days ago
It does happen from time to time and at least you recognized it. Next time write in a journal, punch a punching bag, or play music. Find something that helps you cope and don't use food. If you do feel like you need that food measure out a serving size and put the rest away. 3378 days ago
Yea just think of it as a lesson learned! :)I notice when I do that I try to ask myself why are you eating? Are you hungry? The answer is usally no...so I would stop. But don't be too hard on yourself. I used to eat when I would get in fights with my parents and I would just stuff my face and I think I always thought I was hurting them (I don't know why or what I was thinking) but I was only hurting myself in the end and just became overweight. Hope your day gets better and have a great weekend ahead! 3378 days ago
That's a pretty human thing to do, don't beat yourself up about it, we all have slips. The hard part is to forgive yourself enough to go on and continue. Where I always get caught up is "I blew it, I might as well throw in the towel and give up. I'll always be fat." And that kind of self-defeating talk. Hope you can just move on. Sandy 3378 days ago
So you caved in-but you RECOGNISE why you did it! So that's a step forward! Next time, you can be prepared for it and have a 'plan', something else to do that will help you to deal with it. And even if you only START to eat and then stop, that's another step forward. 3378 days ago
