No feeling sorry for yourself, just get back on your horse and continue down the trail.

eeeeeeeek I should give you 5 minutes with my friend Ingrid!!! She's managed to lose & maintain 80 lbs. gone for years, and she said to me (with all the candour of a best friend) that "eating like crazy, feeling bad about it and wallowing in self-pity and swearing to do better tomorrow is self-indulgent BS!" and that was about the NICEST part of it hahahahahah but it worked - she kicked my *** into gear alright LOL

ps she's about 5 feet tall hahaha hilarious!

Its ok to fall down. The problem is not getting back up. I ate a chocolate chip cookie the other day. What did I do? I looked it up in my software, saw it was 70 calories, and stayed on the treadmill and extra 10 minutes to burn it off. Remember Edison had 9000 attempts before making a successfull light bulb. He said every time he failed he knew he was one more try closer to getting it right. So analyze why you did what you did, and come up with a plan to avoid doing it in the future.

I really have nothing new to add...!

But that won't stop me from posting!

I also try to see days like that as a learning experience. What can you glean from it so you won't do it again? We all fall down from time to time. It's the getting up again that counts.

I've learned that it's okay to stand up for yourself, and that you shouldn't be afraid of "ruining" everybody's good time because something might be too much of a temptation. Sometimes the act of verbalizing your concerns will actually make it easier to avoid the temptation, because it will make everyone around you aware of it...especially around my fiance because he would probably say something, "Well, I thought you weren't going to eat that." So I need to stop this love affair with food and not be afraid to not have any. Life will still continue!

To prevent this from happening again, no matter how far along in the meal I am, if I am full, I'm going to ask the wait staff the next time they come to the table or flag them down to get a box, that way I can put it away, and out of mind. There are too many times when I idly eat food while we're out at a restaurant just because I want something to do with my hands.

I sometimes get the to go box with my drink, before the food even comes. The waitresses must hear it alot, because I've almost never gotten so much as a surprised look. Then when the food comes, I put in what I'm planning on saving to take home (usually about half). One restaurant we go to has such huge portions, I usually end up taking 2/3 home.

Rakel, you've done amazingly already. I look forward to the day thatI can say I lost 30 pounds! And I agree with faerie--it's unlikely you gained 4 pounds in one day. A lot of it is probably a lot of water retention. Anyways you just need to get back on the healthy train. One day does not make a disaster

I've done this before but I always feel weird doing it. I'll have to try it more often, it will probably help me a lot.
