I fell off my horse (figuratively) about 10 days ago. I tried several times to pull myself back up with the reins but just could not get a good grip. I have now convinced myself how important it is to take control and I am back in the saddle again. Leading my horse to healthy foods and exercise. Very Happy

it is so tough once fall to cheat foods like chips, candy, fast food, etc., thinking we can have just one, etc. but then it snowballs.

i did it too, about 10 days ago as well ... i still haven't fully gotten back in the saddle, but you are right, control and will power are key ... congrats on getting back on ... slowly but surely i will too. gotta grab hold of the reigns.

Smile I'm with both of you guys - I've decided that this self-created "lull" of sorts is just me trying to give my skin some time to catch up with my awesome weight-losing-regimen (or so I'm telling myself so I don't feel quite so bad about it).

I have decided to give myself a little break from logging, not from trying to eat better. I'm giving it 2 weeks from tomorrow's weigh-in. If I can lose, I may continue trying to not log for a while, but in all likelihood, I will not lose and will be back on here with my daily intake.
Does anybody really think that they didn't get what they had because they didn't have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment?

I think we all have those times when we're weak and give in to temptation, but it's what you do afterward that counts. As long as you can pick yourself back up and keep going after you hit that bump in the road then you are winning the battle. During the holidays was when I completely fell off the wagon, but I reevaluated what I was doing and hopped back on, and now I feel much better. I hope we can all stay on this wagon and help pull each other up before we fall off next time! Wink

The first thing I have to do is forgive myself. Ok, I didn't do so great. Yesterday's mistake doesn't have to be today's decision. It's hard to get back on track but weight loss and health is a daily process so I have to try to keep that in mind.

I think it does get easier with time. A couple of days ago I was craving some crap, ate some crap, then felt like crap. And not because I ws beating myself up about splurging but becaue I felt physicaly sick. I have been doing this about 10 month now and in that time my body has gotten use to eating better food. So now when I do give into these random cravings I get this negative reinforcement. I actually was glad to get back to my salads and home made real foods.

Yes I agree, this happens to all of us.. we are human after all.Smile... Once in a while I will crave for cake, or icecream, so instead of buying an entire cake or gallon of icecream and keep it at home. I get just one slice at the grocery or one ice cream cone at this home made icecream place, and have it. Why do we need to deprive ourselves. But, the next day I am back to my normal schedule, and I have been able to keep my weight stable. I also do the Insanity and Asylum workouts, and they really give you a thorough workoutSmileSmile.....

24 hour fasting to break past a plateau
Based on your profile you lost 15 lb in less than a month and are eating under 1000 cal average which is too low for a man. What plateau are we talking about? Unless you are morbidly obese, and you are ...

Adding foods
I find sometimes that if I can't find a food in the FatSecret database, I do an internet search and it comes up there under FatSecret. I don't understand why that happens but it works.

I've been getting raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries which are all lower carb fruits. I just stick to a handful of any of them and it been keeping my fruit wants in control. Good luck!
