I'm just going to echo Lovely's advice here- to lose weight, you don't have to be perfect, but you do have to keep going! I read something the other day- I think it was actually in an interview with Jillian Michaels- and she was talking about this same thing. She said (about having off-plan indulgences), "it's like if you get a flat tire. You don't get out of the car and slash the other 3! You change the tire and move on."

Reading that made me chuckle because I used to be such a tire-slasher dieter. Big time. I'd eat one thing off-plan and in my mind it was all over and I'd eat 10 things off-plan. It's taken me a while to learn that one mistake does not mean I have derailed the entirety of my weight loss journey (or that I should go ahead and run it right off the tracks). You pick yourself up, you move on, you plan on doing better at your next meal.
