Way to go! That's definitely the right mindset to be in- it's not about denial or punishment, its about treating your body right (and respecting yourself in the process!) Keep up the positive changes!
I do like the reminder that any bad choice that trigger a downward slide. We all make them from time to time but if we remind ourselves that they sometimes have greater consequences, maybe we'll think twice before hitting up that plate of chocolate dipped sugar cookies at the reception desk (hypothetically speaking, of course.....)
