The Pendulum

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Hmm. A month in and I feel fantastic! My clothes are starting to feel better, I can move around more fluidly, people are starting to comment here and there...

But these last 3 days have been abysmal with my diet:

Brownies, cakes, beer, candy, pizza...

When I analyze why I would do such a thing, I can't tell if its self sabotage, or because I just love the food so much, or perhaps a reward for my good month? All I know is that history has shown that I swing up...and then I swing down. I have worked waaay too hard these last 30 days to start from zero (or go in the negative) again.

Don't worry, I am not beating myself up it's just the awareness of what tends to happen with me when I make progress. 3 Days will not derail me if I choose to press on the way I have been prior.

I choose to press on.

    You are absolutely right; don't let a step back prevent you from going further. Sounds like you have made a lot of progress over time.

    You're aware of what's happening & you have chosen to press on, therefore, you'll choose better the next time for rewards. emoticon

    It is nice to know someone else goes up and down too

    WooHoo! Even if you have a bad day every once in a while, every new day is a chance to press on!
