Yet another set back...

Sunday, September 26, 2010

So last week was my 21st birthday (yes!) and you know when birthdays come around, so does the food and outings to restaurants. So I've been eating like crazy! Everytime I have a set back, I tell myself, "This is the last one! I won't do this again." Then a few weeks down the line, I have another set back. I don't know what to do. How do you stop the set backs? How do you get over that hump where food controls you and cross over to the side where you control food? Any advice will be helpful.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence! I think that if I let go of the guilt, and realize that I can splurge on certain occasions, I will be fine.

    I struggle with this as well. My birthday was a few weeks ago, so we went out to dinner, then my parents had a cookout for me, and of course there must be cake! Then my husbands b-day was last week and once again, out to dinner, cake...etc etc. The only thing I can say is that I told myself I wasn't going to feel guilty. If this is going to be a lifestyle change, it has to be real. So special occasions I allow myself to splurge a bit and enjoy long as I know I need to get right back on track the next day and not allow food to destroy all my hard work. You're doing great! Just keep pushing forward!! emoticon
