|The enemy....peanut M&M's|
That being said, it happened, and it may happen again. How we deal with it is the most important thing. One of the toughest concepts for me is to realize that you can recover from eating something not planned, just start again right away. Right away! We all have said this over and over. We've said it to each other, we've said it to ourselves. But sometimes I don't think we really believe it. Yes, these little set backs will set back my weight loss. Maybe I won't lose as fast. I'm proof of that. But losing is what's important. Not how fast you lose, but that you lose and learn something while doing it.
|My gang. Home for the holiday weekend.|
So whatever happened to you this week, or last, set a new goal. Even if you ate all the wrong things, in huge quantities, over the holiday weekend, set a new goal. Even if everyone around you is losing and you're not, set a new goal. If we don't continually set these goals, we'll have nothing to pull us up, when we slip. Set those goals. Dream those dreams!
