Didn't eat right this past week, so I'm back on a healthy eating plan. Need to lose before June 21 for my grand-daughter's wedding. Everyone have a great day!

1000jean good luck. "At first you don't succeed try, try again." Isn't that the old saying. I struggled through last week and went off track but have a sense of renewal with the new week, too. This week planned my work week menu in advance.
Stay strong, stay focused.

Don't think of it as failing and starting over but rather continuing the process. These set backs are all a part of it! I'm in the same boat as you but trying to take it day by day. Also, if you are feeling overwhelmed it's completely reasonable to take a week off to maintenance calories on purpose. That way you don't have this guilt cycle going and you're in control!

Good luck!

You fell off the wagon, don't beat yourself up. Just get back on track, go for a walk. Plan your meals, maybe work on a backup plan for your next social event so you'll do better. Soldier on!

advice needed
Make your way of eating and your exercise part of your life, not a diet that will run it's course. Sounds easy but it does take commitment and effort.
