Weight Loss Tip - Have a bad day? Eat Too Much? A Cheat? Get BACK on Track !

No one is perfect on any Weight Loss or Diet plan! Everyone makes mistakes and messes up! If your Human this will happen to you.. So... they key that has helped me lose over 100 pounds is to get back on track immediately!!! Don't say "Oh I messed up the whole day now I might as well keep eating" For example... I went to a cookout and planned on staying on my program but there were so many delicious desserts, treats, macaroni salads, you name it, it was there... So I started off with a small plate of just a few things I liked. I felt satisfied but I WANTED more... so I went back and just started eating whatever I wanted. Macaroni and Cheese, Baked Beans, Cheesecake, and I ate it so fast I don't even remember what else.
Then once I was stuffed it's like I woke up and said "oh no what have I done???!!?" Then I felt upset and fat because I was eating like a Pig on Wheels!! Of course the Cookout was over and my Mom gave me a few plates of leftovers to take home... Hours later I'm home and I started thinking about the extra food in my refrigerator. It was calling me!!! I was no longer stuffed and I thought.. hmmm I already cheated today so I might as well go eat those leftovers before the day is over. I went down to the fridge opened the door and looked at the food and realized "I am only hurting myself if I eat this.. I've already consumed probably 2000 calories more than I should have..
Why do I want to add more? I then realized I was not helping myself by eating more but I was hurting myself. If you look at it that way it will help you in those moments where you want to over eat!
I took the leftover food (and don't tell my Mom) but I threw it all in the trash! After I threw it away I felt proud and accomplished.
I know it was a waste of food but why have it sitting there if it's going to call me every 5 minutes?? If I was strong enough to just say no that would have been one thing but "that day" in particular I just wasn't...I got back ON TRACK, grabbed some fruit and went to bed. When I got up the next morning I weighed myself and I was only up 1 pound! By the next next that pound was GONE plus a few ounces! Such a HUGE tip for anyone who is trying to lose weight is to GET BACK ON TRACK and your weight loss will continue!! Please comment if you've been there too! Did something similar happen to you?
