I choose to take time off and eat what ever i wanted over Christmas :(
I planned to have a few treats but it didnt work out before i knew it I was munching on everything in sight,
I told myself it was ok because it was christmas and i had been good all year, I hadnt stopped for anything.
I set myself a date - today as it works out that i would be back on track and going hard, I have stuck to that but weigh in was a hard thing to face. Ive gained and ive gained big. I feel like a big rotten mess and can even see where ive gained it.

Anyhow I always said id be honest here so here i am being honest. I messed up. I told myself what i wanted to hear so i could fall back to my food addiction..

Today im proud to say I won by getting back up from the floor and carrying on, I WILL meet my weight goal in 2013 :)

    Don't beat yourself up to falling down. It happens to everyone from time to time. Slip ups are part of getting better, getting healthier. Good job getting back on track today! You CAN do this! :)

    This is the 2nd Christmas that I have given myself permission to gain 5 pounds. It is also the 2nd Christmas that I hained a little more than that. However, I expect to find that once I get back to normal the extra weight will drop off just like it did last year. Yes we gain a little weight if we enjoy Christmas like we always have. But the contentment I got from the Christmas season was important too. Christmas is really big with my family and family is really big for me. Did I eat too much? Absolutely! But never to the point that I felt ill.
    So like others have said, make a new start and good luck on meeting your 2013 goals! emoticon emoticon Have a wonderful New Year!

    I love the picture! It is so festive!

    Girl, I gained 7lbs in 9days...I've lost 3.8 of thoe lbs by getting back on track already. Don't beat yourself up. Do what you're doing, which is get up, dust yourself off and get back on track. That's a smart choice you made!

    you've taken the hardest step; realizing you fell down and pulling yourself back up. I allowed myself to eat whatever I wanted over Christmas too and am now struggling to get back at it. Every day I have to recommit to my goal. emoticon emoticon

    Maybe it's just me, but I've found that eating "whatever I wanted" no longer holds the same allure and panache as it did pre-Spark. Something about the ground covered and progress made just continues to resonate. Good luck in 2013!
