falling off the wagon
I cheated this week. A lot. I did not lose a pound. However, I did not gain one either. I am OK with that.

In the past I would have beat myself up and thrown in the towel. Not today. Today I am proud that though I had a hard time this week sticking to the program I still ate much less than I normally would have and made better choices. Thus, I averted gaining any of the weight back that I had tried so hard to lose over the past two weeks.

Today is a new day, and the beginning of a new dieting week. Last week is over. Today I will move forward.

Please let me know how your week went and if you had any special challenges.

Happy Weight Loss!!!!

I am so proud of you. That is a HUGE accomplishment - to see the reality, make new goals, forgive yourself, and move on.

Good job, Julie.

You are an inspiration to me. :)

Hugs to you.

This is a wonderful attitude! I have had to learn to forgive myself and move forward. Check out my post today as I mention about focusing on one meal at a time.

Keep up the great work! We're going to make it!

Just like baseball - keep track of where you are in the game and forget the last play.

You're doing great!

I think that even though you didn't loose anything this past week, it is still a victory that you didn't gain.
I hope that this up-coming week will be great for you :)

Be blessed today and always.

What a great attitude! I'm feeling a bit discouraged today because I gained some of my weight back. Being on vacation is tough for me.

Oh well, keep up the good work and I'll get back on track! :)

I fell off the wagon, too, and sadly it tasted real nice!

Now it's back to reality!

good for you!

The same thing happened to me. I didn't gain nor loose. Most importantly we DID NOT gain!!! Hold on and find that discipline to eat right and exercise more! It has just been so hard to do lately!!

The great thing about this challenge is that every week we get another chance to make progress! And we're all here to encourage one another.
