CarrieV.'s Journal, 20 April 2018

Took a half day today from work. Had a crummy day... and the old hungry self came out. Tried to keep it reigned in. And then my husband came home pushing us to eat burgers and I caved. I'm at 1200 calories but most of it was junk. I'm sure I'll see the scale move in the wrong direction. Maybe I should skip the scale tomorrow.... I'll beat myself up over it, and I don't need to do that. I just need to try and do better. Tomorrow is a new day.

Skip the scale and don't beat yourself up over it. You still did just fine with the cal intake so over all just a minor blip on the screen. You are mindful of what is going on and that is more than half the battle. Put the crummy day behind you and don't give it a reason to infect the weekend. Skip the scale and do better tomorrow.

Worst thing for moving forward is beating oneself up, IMO. Believe me, I know. I've messed up a hundred times and still lost 84 pounds. I accept that gaining occasionally is normal, and I correct my indulgences before they become a big gain. You'll be fine!!💖

Don’t beat yourself’ll “mess up” along the way, we all do, keep going at it, you’ll be got this!! If you helps I too indulged today, last week and this week has been trying for me and I ate a snickers bar ice cream and felt so bad after I ate it, almost like I committed a horrible sin, but you know what that’s my first slip up I’m the 3 weeks I’ve been at it and for me that’s GOOD, b/c food is my comfort zone when things are bad and I’m lonely and miserable 😬 You can do it!! 😊

It's not about the scale. It's about how you feel and look. Never pay attention the scale because muscle weighs more than fat.

I agree that you should skip the scale tomorrow. I doubt that you will gain any but just in case that with the extra salt intake it does make a difference on the scale. I don't know if you saw the post by a member. He or she said that they weighed themselves every day for something like 300 days or more. One third of the time the scale went up.

If all you did was take in 1200 calories you should see any gain you’re still at a calorie deficit

You got this! I used to let one bad meal snowball into a bad eating day and one bad day turn into two...You already know the solution. Forgive yourself and move the hell on. Drink some extra water, get in an extra step and feel victorious that YOU create your destiny.

It's already done, it's behind you - you are in the now regretting what you can't change, so with great exuberant thoughts plan out tomorrow, and remember there is only one person who can take care of YOU and that person is YOU. Tomorrow a different light shines, so grab the sunbeam of excelling.

Ah, I know this place. You can always remind yourself that it's okay to slip occasionally in moderation. You're doing great (more healthy eating than unhealthy!), so be proud of yourself! YOU got this, girl. Wishing you a better day today, Carrie! ❤︎ Hugs, C
