I'm ashamed, entirely at myself.

I kinda just had a week where I gave up on portions, and ate what I want. It felt great but the regret was in the back of my mind.

I want to get back on but I know I'm not gonna be eating right between my workouts and my actual work. Kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Sorry for the small rant to anyone that bothered looking at this, I don't expect any sympathy; I just don't have a personal diary or anything where I could've written this down.

Hi there-FORGIVE YOURSELF! Don't be ashamed. We are only human. Something that is working for me is to remember that you don't have to be perfect-you just have to be better. Don't let a week of indulgence sabotage your whole next week. Let it go Smile You can do better. I believe in you.

Tomorrow is a new day. A new opportunity to get back on track.

You can do it. . .just one step @ a time.

Tou stated that you were going to have problems eating healthy between workouts & work. . .why? Can you plan ahead, pack your own food to take with you? That way, you are not killing your calorie count with fast food & great for time crunch situations. Try it.

You are worth the extra effort it takes to get healthy. Now pick yourself up. Congratulate yourself for starting again & not giving up.

Keep moving forward. . .just one more step, then another. ..

Hang in there, buddy. How much do you restrict yourself? Don't make it too hard on yourself to do this, there is no need to.
You have to find that magic place where you are at a calorie deficit, and still feeling that you're living life.
It takes a little balancing, but it can be done, and you will find your way of doing it. Sometimes it takes as little as skipping that one snack, or cutting out a little meat for dinner. Sometimes it takes a little extra work at the gym.
I know you can do it, just put your mind to it. We're all here cheering you on, and watching from the side lines.
There is a whole new world waiting for you just a little further down your weight loss road. You don't need to make it to the end to see it, just a little down the road. You will be amazed.
My only regret having lost my weight is the fact that I didn't do it 25 years ago. You're still young. Do it while life is ahead of you. Smile Now is the time.
You know you're always welcome to inbox me. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Ok, here is how I see it.
You slipped up, had a week off good eating and exercise, it may have set you back, but that was last week.
Don't you take time off work once or twice a year? Doesn't that set you back a little? You had a week off, and enjoyed it.
Now your back, and time to get back at the regular routine, and work towards your next time off.
Don't regret it, or beat yourself up over it, its over and you can't change the past, you can only change your future behaviour. Now if it happens too often, I would maybe tighten the reins just a bit, but every once in a while, no big deal.

I am just coming back from vacation and it is hard after about a week off to come back and get back into the healthy eating and exercise routine. This morning I made myself wake up and workout and I'm going to make myself eat better and after about a week, I think I'll be back into my routine. You just need to move on from that bad week and pick yourself up a little at a time. Not eating right for a week isn't going to hurt you, it's giving up and making excuses not to get back to eating better and exercise that will do the damage. You'll get back to where you were, you just have to fight. Good luck!!
Goals for 2015:
Start a running program
Sign up & complete a 5K- Done

We all fall off the wagon from time to time.

This may be a good opportunity to re-evaluate your diet plan. If it is so hard to maintain that you were desparate for a binge, you may be dieting too hard. Give yourself some room within your plan to make small mistakes so that you can avoid beating yourself up like this when you can no longer sustain what you're doing.
Weight loss takes time. There is no way to cheat the system.

Not hungry anymore
Eating so little will put your body into starvation mode. And that's not good - long term you could get ill, you need to eat a sensible amount for your weight.
