Now I could list all the stuff that has been going on, but the bottom line is that it doesn't matter. There is no excuse for stress eating. My diet should be a a way of life - on good days, busy days and stressful days.

Don't beat yourself up for being human. Try to take out time for you, even if it's just ten minutes at a time, just to relax and breathe. I hope today is calmer and you can get that walk.

Bren - Thanks for your vote of confidence. I will now proceed to have a good day - just for you! Now you do the same.

Sierra - I really appreciate your comment and I'm going to take your advice. You have a great weekend.

Ouch. Just remember that any one meal, day, or week really makes no difference. Weight management (and loss) is about the total picture by month, quarter, or year. Sometimes you may pig out but 7 bad days surrounded by 349 good days will still lead you to your goals!

That's a great way of putting it all into perspective Fish! I like that.

February has been a tough month for many of us, don't you think Buffy? And we had such hopes for it. I'm with Bren, and Sierra. Actually I'm with everyone here. This is for you. Take time for yourself and don't beat yourself up. YOU CAN DO THIS!

Heather - Hope you have not been having a hard time too - you and your nutritionist! But February isn't over yet so I've got time for a comeback!

My nutritionist, LOL. Every day is a challenge, Buffy girl. Definitely time for a comeback for all of us! Let's do it.

Sierra - Don't we have the best Cheerleaders on FS?

Buffy, believe me, I understand exactly what you are saying...and while in our minds we know this, our psyche's seem to have a mind of their own, and they are convinced that those foods WILL make it all better. lol I have added mashed cauliflower to my diet, and last night made pork chops for dinner. When they were done, I added some heavy whipping cream, salt, and pepper to the drippings and made gravy. OH MY GOSH...comfort food to the nth degree and all "legal". It did make me feel better! lol Have a great day, my sweet friend...you'll get back on track in no time. Hugs!

Aw, Buffy, I know how bad you feel, believe me!!! But, as Bren wrote to me recently, we WILL get our mojo back! Small steps, one at a time, will lead you right back onto the path. I just LOVE what Fish wrote about keeping this all in perspective. You are still TWENTY pounds down!! Know how many people would love to say that? Lots and lots.....and you've done it! Don't beat yourself up, just move on forward with what you need to do. You ARE a success already!

Stef - Thanks for understanding. Your dinner sounds so yummy - you always have the best ideas. Been meaning to tell you that I tried wings YOUR WAY and DH liked them better than mine. Ouch.

Sandy - you could be writing this about yourself - what was that weight loss again - 70 lbs? We are all a success in one way or another. But back to more small steps for a bigger success. Best of luck with your new diet mix.

To Everybody - I did get my 40 minute walk in this noon.

Buffy don't beat yourself up, we are only human and we have our ups and downs... pat yourself on the back, head high, and move on :)

Buffy, awww...sorry. I am glad he liked them though. The mashed "faux"tatoes and gravy was really good!! lol
