Hey Everyone!

So I don’t have a big extravagant post for you guys tonight. Honestly, I am struggling a bit right now. There are some things going on with my family that have affected me more than I thought and Sunday was a very hard day for me food wise. I ended up adding a bunch of condiments I didn’t need too and realized how easy it is to start slipping back into my old ways when confronted with triggering situations. I am happy that I was able to catch it and not let my self get off course, but I did swerve a bit and am now worrying about my weigh in and dealing with feeling guilty. I should take my own advice and just move on and learn from the situation. Which I really did and I will move on and always do better! For now I am doing straight shakes for a few days to get rid of all cravings, no soups, bars, veggies, etc. This is what I have found most helpful when having a hard time so far. How are you all doing? What do you do when you start getting of course? Let me know below!

See you Wednesday! ❤

  1. I was working on eating right a few years ago, when my grandfather had a massive heart attack and required a quadruple bypass. Although my grandfather survived – and is still alive today – it totally derailed me.

    I’d say the fact that you’ve recognised your behaviour, and know that you need to be consistent is the first major step in keeping yourself on the right track. You got this!

  2. Hey, don’t let that get you down! Take it in your stride. Family gatherings are hard, tempting, but don’t beat yourself up. You’re still on your way to achieving what you want. Forget Sunday. Tuesday’s coming up! You can handle it ❤️ Cheryl >

  3. I agree – recognizing triggers and zeroing in on those damaging behaviors is such a huge accomplishment. Bad days are inevitable but they don’t have to lead to bad weeks or months. You can simply tell yourself “yep, that was a rough day” and then you go right back to your new routine. I’ve definitely had weeks where I gained but I tell myself “suck it up buttercup” cause two weeks of weight gain ain’t an option. Remember the big picture dear – you’re doing great!

    1. Thank you so much, if this was 6 months ago, I would have kept going and stayed ignorant of what I was doing. I am so glad I stopped this time before it got bad! Thank you so much for your support! Fm tomorrow will be a better day! 💗

  4. Emotional or boredom eating are the worst, I do that a lot! So, I hope things get sorted out soon love! I’ve started spending most of my time outside the house during daytime, maybe in city to avoid eating when I’m bored. And when I go off track, I also do what you’re doing. Pretty much just quit everything and get on raw fruits and veggies diet or something to get over the cravings. You got this!!! Feel better! XX

  5. Hi Ruzele, it doesn’t matter how many lbs (or kgs) we have to lose we all have slip up days. Your doing what you feel will help you get through this one and that’s all that counts. Don’t feel guilty though, i was doing an exercise video just yesterday when they were reminding people that none of us became overweight overnight. You’ve already lost so much, so focus on where you’ve come from, how far you’ve come and not just this weekend.

    1. Thank you so much mystery commenter! 🙂 That is so true! I have literally spent my whole life getting to where I am, its not going to happen quickly! Rome wasn’t built in a day…lol 😉


  6. So let me put things a little in perspective for you. Let’s say you have 5 meals a day which means you have 1800 meals during a year. And during the last week you had 35 meals. For How many of those 35 meals did you “slip up”?it is ok to have a bad day. Or even four. It’s what you do with the rest of the 1800 meals in a year that counts. And it matters how fast you discover you’re on the wrong path, and that YOU decide you want to change it. You’re doing great! 🙂
