I had one of those days yesterday. Today, Monday, is a new day. Report
Great article following a lost weekend Report
I'm needing this this weekend. Doing best to stay on plan Report
Fall down seven times, stand up eight! Report
It sounds like you need a backup meal in the freezer for surprises like that, rather than going out when you're famished. Make some extra casserole or something and freeze part of it to heat up for emergencies like this! Or have some healthy convenience food on hand, that other people have made. Sometimes you just should stay in! Report
Every morning is another chance to get it right! Report
We all stumble at some time. Fall down seven times, stand up eight! Report
That has happened to me before but the older I get my habits have been so much better. Thank G-d!! So far this year has gone very smoothly no booboos & I feel good about my choices!! Report
Good article Report
The lyrics of an old '60's song said "but that was yesterday and yesterday's gone". This is the attitude we need to adopt with respect to slips and stumbles. Report
So so so true. While losing weight I would have a blow out meal and then get right back on track. My weight loss was on the slow side, and that was ok. Now in maintenance I'm more relaxed and still go off rails sometimes when it comes to healthy choices. For me there are no inherently good or bad foods so no guilt. I weigh myself a couple of times a week and stay within a 4 pound range. Life has to be lived and have a big meal once in a while is part of life. Like the author I don't let it get me off track for the rest of the day, weekend, or week. Report
"like"!!!! Report
May I suggest that the day did NOT start off well, much less finish well? A breakfast of yogurt, bagel and lite cream cheese, and a grapefruit is 2 meals worth of food and a full lunch topped off with 2 cookies? Breakfast and lunch as described is realistically 1000+ calories, close to the 1200-1550 calories that should be eaten per day if trying to lose weight. But the message to get back up and try again is a good one and well taken. Report
Yep...I am mostly on my game but sometimes we eat things that maybe aren't so great for us. So what. As long as we consider these treats and we don't make these treats an every day occurrence, then it is okay. I know that there are some people who can't indulge in certain foods without the risk of falling into a binge but for me, the occasional treat is what makes this LIFESTYLE change doable. Report
