My day is pretty much down the tubes if I start off with a big breakfast (over 600 calories) Maybe it's just mind over matter... but I feel like I've blown the day so I just bing for the rest of the day.. and many times long.

It's important to see these red flights. What are yours?

I ALWAYS go off program too when I have company.. I give myself an excuse. Lately I've had people over for lunch instead of dinner... this does help. It's a smaller meal - then I can have a sensible dinner.

When I am tired...When I have been up all night catching babies I "deserve" to go out to breakfast and I "deserve" to not have to cook that night...and I "deserve" to take a break from exercise.

I got off program when my son moved out of the house. I had to come to the conclusion that, even though he moved out, I *still* have to cook for myself.

I agree with that have-a-good-breakfast deal. If I start out wrong, the whole day usually follows wrong.

I NEVER stay on program when I ... go out to dinner with my friend Randy. He's a skinny little sprite with the metabolism of a hummingbird, and I'm ... not.

Eat a sweet afternoon snack, even fruit! I can have a sweet morning snack and be just fine, and in the evening I can have a sweet dessert after dinner and be fine. But if I eat something sweet between 2pm and 6pm, it sets off my inner sugar junkie.

skip breakfast. Something I almost never do, but when I do, I always end up going over on my calories. I either get really hungry and overeat later in the day, or I figure that I've saved 300 calories by not eating breakfast, so I can splurge for dinner.

I didn't eat breakfast for more 25 years, and I now know that breakfast is an important part of my plan.

160 lbs lost!

... don't write down what I eat!

I CAN eat more than I want when I do write it down, but I have a mental block that if I'm not writing, it doesn't seem to count as much.

So, I will keep tallying everything I eat, almost every day...

When I have a busy morning, like today, with my oldest getting sick and me having to run to the doctor-store-pharmacy etc. I didn't have breakfast, so by lunch time I'm starving and I eat anything, then I feel crappy about it and just binge the rest of the day.

Two things cause me to fall off the wagon. The biggest one, is a brief falling off the wagon. For example if we go out to dinner and I eat sensibly, but then decide to have dessert. Then what happens is for the next week (or sometimes longer) I just think, "Well, I blew it, I'll eat what I want." My philosophy this time around is that I am not dieting. I am making healthier choices and I am not going to deprive myself 100% of the time. That no longer gives me an excuse to go completely off program over one less healthy choice.

Stress also causes me to not stay on plan, but today, I won that battle! We have a horrible plumbing issue (an ongoing plumbing issue, may I add?) and while waiting for my new best friend, the plumber, I ate a few low fat Triscuits and some low fat spinach dip. I felt satisfied after that, but twenty minutes later I was standing in front of the fridge again! For the first time ever, I realized what I was doing, and purposely walked away to read this board in order to stay motivated!

Lightbulb I haven't strayed off plan in the 32 days that...

I've started my new plan, but my big down fall is wine. If I drink even one glass I give my self permission to munch. I am staying far away. Also sugar sets me off. I will have a serious binge. So no sugar or starch for me.

Stress from work sets me off like nothing else... luckily I quit my highly stressful job for a one that actually pays MORE but I have zero responsibility. I've finally realized that you can have a LIFE, AND work! Who knew!

~ I have trouble staying on plan when I have a change from my normal routine (getting sent home from work because they are over staffed ~ doesn't happen often ~ but when it does ~ somehow I feel like I want to celebrate and why does celebrate = food to me?) or when I have to attend a class that takes the place of a work day.

~ when I have survived a rugged night at work.

~ or like train said when I have a headache ~ don't feel good and eat what ever will make my headache go away.

~ also when I am tired ~ sometimes ~ so tired I just don't care, and grab the easiest thing which is seldom the best choice.
One day at a time ~ never giving up!!

Nobody can force you to have a certain attitude. But life will go so much better if you will simply choose to be positive. When you wake up, choose to be happy. Choose to be grateful for the day. (Joel Osteen)

About five to seven days during the month, when PMS hits, I get VERY iritable and hungry for chocolate, sweets, and red meat. My husband and I are eating a lot less red meat, and my meat cravings are even worse now than ever before during those days. My husband has even started calling it "meat week." I have always found it nearly impossible to lose weight "that week," and it gets discouraging enough that I really think that if I could fix that one week, I might have a chance at gaining ground on the weight loss. Unfortunately, it seems like it takes me three weeks to "undo" the damage I caused during "meat week."
