A Bump in the Road

I had two bad days a earlier this month; not horrible, but bad for me. Started when I was on a trip, which is often a time when I feel more stress and also have less control over my food. Of course I paid for it by feeling awful physically, and mentally.

It was a bump in the road, not the end of the world. That’s what I keep reminding myself. Like lots of people, I have to work very hard, very diligently in order to keep my weight in check, and to avoid the FQ Principle when one bad carb food quickly can lead to another worse carb food.

We all have those days. The key is to stop as fast as possible and not let one eating event turn into days or weeks or more.

Never give up, keep on trying is my motto. So I’m back in high gear doing another round of very careful eating for a few weeks to get down a few pounds. There’s nothing like a project to get the motivation up. But diet fatigue, inadequate sleep, worries, various challenging life events can make anyone have a bad day. It’s what we do most of the time that matters.

Yours in never giving up…
