I have already fallen off the wagon.

Thispost is mainly for accountability more than anything else. I started soft food this past thursday. Since then I have ate several things I should not have. The worst of them all and the smack to my head was when I actually ate a bite of cookie last night. I just spent what I consider to be a large sum of money, altered my body for life, and made a commitment to myself. Yet, here I sit typing. I started this morning determined to stick to my plan. If its not Protein its not going in mouth. I think I need motivation.

I am day 18. I have had.. (wait for it), a cupcake, half a cheese burger, two vodka Water and apple-juices, 5 mini cocktail sausages, toast with ham and a very small slither of cake. Am i beating myself up over it? No. Should I have eaten these things? Probably not. Will the world stop revolving as I'm still under 700 calories a day? Definitely not. It's a cookie. I know you feel bad, but a little perspective is required here.... clamber back up on that wagon and keep pumpin' the Protein. You'll forget it all in about, ooh, say, 20 minutes...

The surgery you've had is not a miracle, but its the most effective tool I have ever used. There is a certain amount of work that goes into it on your own. There should be no Cookies in your house to eat. I have in the past used the excuse that its not fair for my kids to not have treats, just because of me. What ends up happening is your human side and old habits make it too tempting. Dont beat yourself up, today is a new day. Now get to work and stay determined! I buy treats for my kids that do not tempt me, I have found they really don't care anyway.

I think at some point we will all have a moment where we shouldn't have put something in our mouth... The great thing is that you have taken accountability for it and now shake it off and get up again... Today is a new day =) Don't worry so much on what happened or what you ate but how you learned from it. This is all a process and its going to be really hard at times yet other times we are going to not give a second thought. YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Thanks, usually I dont have treats here unless its apples or grapes...my kids devour fruit. Yesterday was a birthday though, so what he picked was a cookie cake. My head should have been in the game more, but I was weak.

Chin up, Buttercup.

You've identified a problem - you're working on accountability. I admire you for putting your struggle out there.

Keep working hard and love yourself. How would you treat a good friend that did the same thing - you would probably offer words of encouragement, not beat them up. Treat yourself that same way.

Sending positive vibes and ((hugs)) your way today.

Hunny, if the worst you've eaten it's okay. It's good you are aware of your eating, but don't beat yourself up...we have to take it day by day:)

I'm just 4 months and 3 weeks out and 60 pounds down since surgery. So, I'm not losing super fast but I am happy with my pace. I am not perfect, never have been and never will be. I do try to keep junk out of my house but sometimes other people bring it in. I have found that it helps me to say that no food is a never food. It is just a last food. I have to have my dense Protein first, then a little fruit or veggie, and then I can have whatever it was that I wanted. This keeps me from eating a lot of the stuff I would otherwise eat because I am just too full or by then the craving is gone. Don't beat yourself up over small slips just don't let it become a habit.

It happens! You fall down, you get back up and start over again.

I think the worst for me was second day out and I ate a chicken nugget.

I was sick for hours ...

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
