Caught up in the moment.

Monday, May 25, 2009

Okay, so I haven't been doing the best on my diet for the past week (since girl's night last weekend) and I think I have probably gained all of my weight back that I worked so hard at getting rid of. I know this isn't the case, but I kind of feel like a failure. For the past 2 months I have had my diet under control. I made all the right decisions and kept my portions right where they needed to be. I have screwed this up all in one single weekend. I don't know how I could let this happen. When I was working out and getting rid of the pounds, I had such an optimistic attitude. I knew I could do it. Right now, I have no idea if I can get this done. It seems like things just keep getting in my way of reaching my goal. I have so much to lose, and the goal just seems to getting farther and farther away. What do I do?

    Keep your head up and keep pushing - don't ever give up! You can do this and you will. Keep working on making the right choices. When you have a girls night, decide if the junk food you're eating is really worth it - think of how it taste, was that moment worth the work you've put in? What about how it makes you feel, was that worth it? And that includes beverages: are they worth it? Just keep asking yourself that. We're here to help whenever you need us. Rememer, there is a panic button if you need it.

    Girl, take a few deep breaths. That's the first thing to do. Next, I want you to find a mirror, look yourself right in the eye and say, "I forgive you. And I love you." Forgive yourself! Everyone has a few slip-ups here and there. Those slip-ups can be one moment, an hour, a day, a week, a month... years for some people, but as long as you can forgive yourself, you can get back in the swing of things.

    So you had a bad week. That's ok! Stay off the scale for a while if you need to keep from getting discouraged. Just start fresh with your next decision. And congratulate yourself if you do a good job! Baby steps back into the swing of things if you need to. Maybe you got a little overwhelmed? Did you take things too quickly? Ask yourself (and if it helps, write about) why you have been having a hard time. Once you understand that, you can overcome it.

    Use this as a learning experience. And just remember that you CAN do this, and you will get it DONE, because you're a DONE girl now!
