I relasped... I feel horrible...

These past two days I relasped and I feel so super guilty. I didnt go to the gym today and I enjoyed a scrumptous meal filled with 11 herbs and spices from KFC. When I get like this I instantly fall into a "screw-it" mode and Im trying not too. WHat do you do when you have a bad day?

I had my relapse meal yesterday at lunch so I know how you feel. It's over, so don't beat yourself up over it. Just get back on the right track in the morning! Good luck to you.

Get back on the horse... so to speak

Whatever you gain from one day you can lose in 1-2 days it you get right back on track. If those pounds stay there for a few days, they are much harder to lose. It's like they get used to being there

The day ooos over, tomorrow is a new day. Get back on the horse.

Start off healthy tomorrow. Don't weigh yourself for a day or two. Seeing the number go up (from what is probably just sodium/water weight) might make you more likely to have another relapse.
its not like its a 3 month relapse - you still have it under control!

The past two days have been the same for me, with damn ice cream. I know exactly how you feel. Just keep chugging and don't look at the scale!

its not howmany times you fall that matters its how many times you get back up.

were human slips and slides will happen, but keep going and make the next thing on track that you eat.. yesterday I binged on cereal of all things, but today is a new day. lets start over together.. we can do this!

no guilt

consisency is key... so if you are consistency bad you will just gain.... don't even feel guilty. this happens. sometimes I think our bodies need it every now and again. i think its the guilt that gives us that attitude, well is screwed up so I may as well keep on eating..... i would not call that a relapse.... allow this every once in a while... no guilt.. then go back to eating right.. i agree with not weighing yourself unless its your weigh in day.. this has to be a lifestyle not just a temp thing or it will never last.

I like the gradual approach

I have been doing healthier things gradually, kinda figuring, I've been big a long time, no hurry. This time around (there have been many other attempts) it is easier for me to rise from the fall of a few extra drinkies, or dessert, but the portions are smaller and the rest of the meal is within the healthier range.
I feel like I kinda have taken the pressure off when I look at the whole process as "overall health" and not a rush get get the pounds off.
Having said that....I still would love to have a bigger piece of flan!
