Have a great OP day!
It's an easy mindset to get into "Oh well - I've cheated now. I may as well go crazy and start again tomorrow". However, we've had many "I'll start tomorrow"s which is why we're here in the first place. Good for you for getting back on track and recognizing that you have to work on your mindset. The diet is temporary but eating is for life. If we don't fix how we look at food, the weight won't stay off later.
Maybe we should have a "thoughts of the day" or "Favourite quotes" thread and we could ask Lisa to post her "Beck" inspirational thoughts there - and others could put favourite quotes etc. When people need a morale boost, they don't have too look too far for some words of wisdom
Just a thought...
