So, after a week of being mostly on track and a great 3 pound loss, I "celebrated" last night by stuffing my face. Honestly, what the h** is wrong with me? I ate dinner, so happy to have had another successful day, feeling proud of myself for having a big spinach salad with a few lean beef slices on top rather than the big buttery potato and hunk of steak the hubby was eating. Yeah, even turned him down when he was making himself a bowl of ice cream..........and then it hit me. An overwhelming hunger that I could not stop, or so it seemed, and I broke down and fed it-fed it a lot. As in an entire bag, not those cute little single-serving bags, no I had to eat the entire family sized bag, of white cheddar popcorn and still I was "hungry" so I followed that little debaucle with a big fat peanut butter and banana sandwich and a glass of almond milk. I mean, are you f'ing kidding me right now?? I know better, and I knew I certainly wasn't hungry. So, I should probably just say the hell with it all and start over on Monday right? I mean, isn't that what we do? No, today, I am going to get back on track, I'm prepping food for the week now, to help me avoid that "nothing to eat so I'll try everything" binge. And I need some help, I need to be accountable, and to admit my screw-ups, so here it is, in writing, my huge well over 2000 calorie day.............

    Yep, we have all been there. Sounds like something triggered you. At least you quit before it got really ugly. LOL.

    emoticon You are right. You just start again. We all fall off the wagon (heck it ran me over at Christmas) but it is just a bump in the road as long as you keep going!

    That's right, every day is a new day. Don't wait for the Mondays, today is the right day to get on track again.

    You have to do what works for you. We are all so different, after being on a plateau for what seemed like forever, someone gave me a sample of capsules. They are all natural from a berry from Scandinavia. They gave me energy, cut my appetite and immediately lost 3 pounds and a couple inches off my waist line. I have now been taking them for over a month, but have not had any noticeable difference in weight, but I feel better so and still have a curbed appetite, but scales are not showing signs of moving anywhere. Go figure! If not any weight loss in the next 30 days, may go off for a while so I can eat more calories to make sure, it is not because I am eating too little. As long as I feel good, I assume if I am following a healthy diet, get enough sleep, the body will stay healthy and finally catch up to the actions. Don't get discouraged!

    Do you see what you're doing as a Lifestyle change knowing that you're trying to eat as healthy as you can or do you see it as a diet where you're restricted from eating certain foods until you lose the weight?

    I struggled my first time with SP because I saw the journey ahead of me as a diet in which I was going to eat a certain way until I lost the weight. Little did I know that would be my downfall!

    It took me awhile to regroup but I did, and, after dealing with a huge allergy flare-up of wheat and other grains resulting in me becoming gluten free, I now realize that healthy eating as opposed to dieting is what works for me. And just as important is portion control and logging my food and water intake. I will probably have to do that for the rest of my life and I am okay with it.

    PS - Frankly, if my husband was eating a lovely steak - and I ate steak - I would have been having a 3-4 ounce portion of it along with a 5-ounce potato with a pat of butter - but that's just me. :D

    Have a great week!
