Today was a total fail- I went so off my diet- I ate so many different things although I picked small I still tried a variety of things that I would not come close to. I feel disgusting but I don't want to be discouraging- I want a change in my life- I don't want to slip back into old habits- so I lost 25lbs now time to reward myself with food- or I've been doing so good I can slack off a little..NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I cant fail, I cant stop. Maybe I am getting a little overmyself - I mean its only ONE day, I can hop on board tomorrow and eat right and work out- I worked a catering party tonight (as a favor) and they were going to throw out so much food so I took some trays home and began picking as I got home and I didn't even heat it up- WHATS MY PROBLEM???? I had a set back- now off to bed with a rumbling stomach....I cant wait to get home and really stick to my GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8 A.M. or 7 P.M. it doesn't matter, just start up again. You don't push a car up a huge hill just to let it slip all the way back down again, you stop it just as it slips. Either way, what's important is just fixing it again. I slipped up today also, but I'm back on, that's the most important thing and as long as were trying and it doesn't happen all the time then just forgive yourself (Make sure you don't feel guilty if its a rarity), Drink a large glass of water, and move on. Tomorrow's another day for us to learn new things, when bad things happen lets just enjoy a new experience and keep going. You should be proud of yourself for recognizing that you messed up today. That's a step in the right direction.
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.

RikuHearts is right. It doesn't matter as long as you get back on track the next day. I've also learned a lot by logging everything I did eat on a "fall off the program" day. Over time I seem to make better choices when I'm vulnerable to food once I saw the patterns of my binges. It really has helped me make better choices going forward.

it's ok from time to time to have a larger meal, as long as you log the food and you keep a calorie deficit over the long period. One day with a higher kcal intake is not bad if over the week or month you keep a deficit, no reason of feeling guilty.
Actually increasing the intake from time to time can even be beneficial for the metabolism, the important thing is not too think of fatloss as a short term solution but as a long term lifestyle change.

We are only human. Just decrease your calorie intake even more than usual and increase your calorie burn until you get back on track.
