I need to get back to business. The past week or so I've been so off on my game. I've been helping myself to bigger portions, sweets and foods which just aren't good for what I'm wanting to accomplish. I know there are ebbs and flows and I just need to put last week behind me and move on.

My body is telling me to get back with the diet and exercise program. I'm feeling anxious about gaining back the weight I've already lost. I haven't stepped on a scale in about 5 days and that's because I'm afraid to. I'm not sure what big number out of the sky is going to come flashing down upon me and really does it matter? I feel like crap no matter where the scale is.

So wish me luck. Actually, wish me the strength to carry on and be diligent. It's time to get back to making better decisions.

I know what to do. I know better and once again, I need to do better.

We all have times when food just seems to take over! It's the not giving up, taking a deep breath and stepping on the scale to find out just how bad the damage is, and continuing on from there that's important ;)

I just spent a week getting back on track so I know how you feel - I fell off the wagon for nearly two weeks there!! Though in 5 days you may have gained a pound in "real" weight it's unlikely that you'll have gained any more. The rest is probably extra food in your digestive track (that's the most diplomatic way I can put it!).

You can do what I do sometimes - get back on plan hardcore for a couple days before weighing myself. Then, chances are, I won't see a gain at all ;)

(I cheat at this a lot. Sportsmanship, pah!)


Good luck! I'm pulling for you!
