or sometimes it is the entire weekend or a few days. I think we all have those days, and they are to be expected. The thing is, we don't want those types of days. When they happen for me, I try not to dwell on them and get back to it the next meal or the next day. I just read a post about eating horribly and I left a comment about today being a new day. That is how I have to look at it. Otherwise, I will never see progress. I have to recognize my faults, learn from them, and move on in a positive way.
My previous post, up & down, really speaks to how the past 10 days of my life have been. One day I am totally on program - I eat all of my points with healthy filling choices and consume an abundance of water. The next day, I'm all over the map. I use too many points or too few points. I'm just so inconsistent. The thing is, I aim to get right pack on program the next day. That is key. I have to stay focused on the long term.
I'm resolute with the knowledge that I'm likely to not have lost a pound this week. That's okay, overall I'm leading a healthy lifestyle. That, to me, is what is most important. I'm willing to make the changes needed for my overall health.
