I'll admit it...I have a huge problem with food. For the past five days or so I have been off my plan and just eating whatever whenever. It all started with an emotional eating episode that spiraled into days. Now i am eating stuff I don't even want or particularly like. I need to stop and refocus. I need to remind myself that giving up is not an option and will never be an option.
I am taking a breath and picking myself up

    You're singing my song - the one that I know by heart because I've been singing it all my life. For me, every time I launch into a new "plan", when I blow it I'm so disgusted with myself, and it's the beginning of the end. That's one of my goals this time - to truly LET IT GO when I eat something that "isn't consistent with my healthy lifestyle", forgive myself, refocus right away, and NOT let one episode control whether I stick with this or not.

    I'm reading "The Spark", and I just read a chapter on this very thing. It was very motivating. I highly recommend this book. I'm new to SP, and decided to learn all I can about it. If you happen to have a Kindle, the download is only $1.99.

    Anyway, I care. I understand, and I really want you to talk positively to yourself, remind yourself that you're worth it, and fix yourself and enjoy some really delicious healthy food today. Write to me if you want, and I'll write to you. I'm going to be singing this song again before long, because NOBODY can be perfect, no matter how committed they are, and I'm going to need you to give ME the pep talk.

    Oh - one other thing. When I did Body for Life, they have you build in a weekly "free day", when you eat whatever you want, whatever you've been craving, etc. It was great - I never felt deprived, because I knew that in a day or two I could have the doughnut, or nachos, or or or. It worked great - I lost weight well on the plan. Until, of course, I extended my free day to a free week, and the rest is history. But you might consider it.

    I'll be thinking about you. emoticon
