Some days are not so good...

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.

A good way to think of it is you are conscious of what you are doing, and at least some days you are on program. Now you can improve on the ratio of days on/days off, and figure out what happens on the days off.

I've just begun to blog my adventures on The Writing Diet. I like your comment about keeping an eye on the long-term! So true. Not easy not being perfect sometimes!

Very good post. It is so true, it is all about eating healthy...now I need to keep this in mind and stop worrying about what the scale will read week to week.
