Day 24 - Setback

Monday, March 04, 2013

I had a binge tonight. I was upset, I hadn't slept well the night before, and I let my emotions get the better of me. I'm trying not to judge myself or feel negatively about my actions... just trying to understand how it happened, and how I can avoid it in the future.


But seriously, I've had a chance to calm down and I'm determined to get back at it and not to let this derail me. I might have a bad weigh-in this week -- that's ok. I need to focus on my health, and not let the scale discourage me. I'm sure I will also have some bloat for a few days from the sodium. So yeah, I will just not weigh in until Saturday... and even then, I will try not to be upset no matter what it says. I will just do my best the rest of this week to stay in my calorie range, to do my workouts, to do what I can. It's all I can do.... that, and try to learn from this experience. Rome wasn't built in a day....

    Damn you, woman, for being a mere human!


    Seriously, you're a superhero to me, even when you're not "perfect". I love your enthusiasm, your drive, and most of all, your honesty in dealing with your rough spots in this whole journey. So many people would take a binge and let it derail them completely (cue shifty eyes and guilty coughing) but you always face it head on and keep going.

    Thank you for being such a positive example to the rest of us!

    That's great that you see it as a set back, yet are ready to move forward and get back at it... That is what is important!

    Set backs are to be expected. Years and years of coping skills and habits don't just go away because we know better. I know from what you have shared here that you have comes miles and miles from where you were and the fact that you can look at this calmly and not beat yourself up about it shows that. Proud of you Jamie....hugs~

    We all have our bad days - great job recognizing the reasons. You will learn from this as you continue on. You can turn this around and get right back to all the awesome things you have been doing for yourself!! emoticon

    You have been doing really well --- so I'm glad to hear that you're not going to let this challenging time derail your amazing efforts. Get back in there! You've got this!

    You're right, it takes time! I've fallen off the wagon so many times in the past 11 years, but I've learned so much from those "bumps and bruises" along the way. As long as you don't lose your tenacity, you WILL make it to your goal weight!

    It's not the scale that should get your attention but the day. Consider your binge a learning experience and go from there.

    you're right--just because you had one bad day doesn't mean it needs to stay that way. Glad you decided to try to understand the reasons--good choice.
