Hey there ladies!
I have been kinda sorta off the beach since like friday. I turned thirty last Friday and I decided to eat what i wanted. Heres the funny thing though i still ate fairly good except the onion rings and chicken strips a couple times oh and i had a monte cristo but i still worked out( mostly out of and i started to get depressed thinking i blew all my hard work i cant stick to anything. Then i got on the scale this morning to see the damages i did and to my suprise i lost another Yeah!! But i got to thinking that good thing i decided to stay on program because i did have thoughts this weekend of just giving it up. I am by no means advocating cheating. But i am here as living proof to say that it is not the end of the world if you do cheat the important thing is to keep on going once you mess up and everything will be fine. Dont feel bad a bout it just move on. Any way I am on my way to work just wanted to stop in and

That's fantastic! It's one of my favorite things about the SBD, you can still live your normal life.

Happy Birthday!
