Diane Blog got me thinking

I was reading Diane blog- http://www.blogger.com/profile/04951858455082596559

and it got me thinking about my week and weekend. She mentioned how she was doing soo well and then blew it with eating a bunch of miracle wip. I feel like this is the way I feel a lot of the time. I do well for a little while and then boom, something happens and I mess up. But the real matter is how well you respond to it.
Diane mentions- "My point of this post is that we all slip up and mess up. I seem to more than most, yet I can still lose weight. I know I'm going to make goal in spite of these continual slip ups."

While I was home in NY, I gained weight. I came back on Monday and was shocked by the 7lbs I gained. I weighed myself before I went to bed, but still. I got up on Tuesday and my mission was to lose as much of that weight as possible this week. The week went well for the most part, but I did have my slip ups. First it was wheat thins late at night and in the morning. Then on Saturday I went out with a friend and gambled with her(crazy up and down streak of cards) and I drank a ton and got loaded. I was soo frustrated with the fact that she is perfectly fine being just friends and nothing more and I am attracted to her, soo it makes it soo hard for me to turn my libido off around her. We got in a text message fight after I left about it. Not to sidebar, but I think thats how I respond, I eat and drink. I went to a bar after I left the casino and had more drinks and a Turkey Wrap with french fries.

Today, Sunday, I weighed in at my weight loss challenge and I had actually still lost the 7lbs since Monday. I couldn't believe it. I knew I worked hard, went to the gym almost all week and I eat good most of the time, but I thought my mess ups with carry me down. The point I am making as Diane is, we all have our ups and downs. Its how we respond to failure that is going to determine our health and wellbeing. I have heard you only fail, when you don't learn anything from it.

Found this new cool site, http://www.mypyramid.gov/

Great job losing the weight you gained last week. I hope to do the same this week!

I think it's important that we all realize one meal isn't going to derail all our efforts - it's our habits over time that shape our progress. For a lot of us though, it's very hard to "get back on track" after a one meal slip up.

Excellent words my friend...it's only a failure if you don't learn anything. I think you learned a lot and now you've taught us too.

PS: the link in your blog took me to a page selling dell laptops.

PPS: I love the food pyramid site! Have had that bookmarked for years.

PPPS: It's hard being 'just friends' when you want more. Hugs to you.

I think that's so great that you just went right back and attacked that weight!

On my own journey to lose 150 pounds, I did learn that I sometimes had to start over several times in a 'day' because of choices I was making!

Wonderful job!

Way to get yourself back on track! It would have been easy to give in to the gain, but you didn't!

Wow, good job on the weight loss this week. 7 pounds is awesome!
I am working more and more on the emotional aspects of my eating. I am definitely a comfort eater and have to work with myself every day to try to counter act that tendency.
I hope you have a good week ahead!
