We all mess up now and then, it's part of being human. The important thing is to learn from your mistake and move on. I totally get the guilt/shame after a slip, it feels horrible but if you focus on the past mistake it won't help and will just make you more depressed. Hop on the scale today and see the 'damage.' For me, after a mini-binge on junk food a few weeks ago it was a shock seeing I had gained several pounds (thankfully it was mostly if not all water weight). It really helped me learn more about my body and the effect certain foods have (clearly sodium is the devil ). Slips aren't fun, but learn from it and move on. Don't let one mistake stop you from your goal! Stay strong!
