Fell off the wagon, it ran me over... [warning contains food refs!]
Had a bad day and fell off the wagon...
It all started with a milky-way that was left over from leading my youth group. I felt down today, for no apparent reason to be honest. Just one of those days i guess. Anyway, willpower was non-existant and i caved in like a fat kid in a sweet shop. After i had the milky-way i pretty much had the worst attitude going and thought 'to hell with it' and ate everything in sight...
Toast with butter
Cadbury's Creme Egg Twister
That list is just the tip of the iceberg. Unsurprisingly, i feel as sick as a dog now. Serves me b***dy well right. Funny how my binge consists of all the junk food of the day, never hear of anyone saying "ohh i fell off the wagon and binged on lettuce" etc...
Thing is, not one bit of it tasted nice. Chocolate tastes better in my memory than it does in reality. And toast, the one thing i thought would taste like heaven, was nothing to write home about, but i ate it anyway.
To top things off, tomorrow is my WI day...!! Up until today i had been as good as gold, a little CD angel, never slipping up once, or even having a planned day off. Well tomorrow is the start of a new week, i was meant to WI at home, as i only see my CDC every fortnight, so i have a week to redeem myself before i see her again. I don't think i will stand on the scales at home tomorrow, because there isn't a cat in hells chance that i'll have lost weight after todays episode. Better to get myself back into ketosis and try and forget it happened, onwards and downwards...
Every cloud has a silver lining... basically i ate everything today that i've missed not being able to eat, and none of it tasted anywhere near as good as i imagined. I intend to remember that ~ anytime i enviously look at someone devouring some dessert or food that i'd love a bite of, i'll say to myself "it looks better than it tastes", and i can't think of anything else to say other than "nothing tastes as good as being slim feels".
Back on the wagon from now, and i'll have to remember that weight that goes on fast, comes off faster too. Starting from this moment on, i'm back on track, before the fat i've consumed from today sets.

Winners never quit... and quitters never win.
There's no such thing as can't... it's all mind over matter.
Von .... I could have written that post myself hun. I seem to pig out and then feel disappointment because it didn't taste as good as I expected it to taste!
p.s. was the cadburys twister nice? lol xx
Your weight loss so far has been fantastic, so what if you had a blip, you have found out that the food you thought you were craving actually doesnt taste that nice now anyway. Like you said you have a week to get back into the CD and I'm sure you will be just fine.
Take Care Hun and Good Luck xxx
at least your back on the wagon now and thats all that matters and your right food doesnt taste as good as you think it should!
thats the attitude hun,i always say that we all have blips on our journey but its how we deal with it that makes all the difference and you said it,just dont let 1 day turn into 2,3 or 4.
thats my motto to as you will see below anbout nothing tasting as good as slim feels,its true to the core,draw a line under today and think that tomorrow is a new week and a new day,and maybe you should weigh yourself just to see how you go and at least you can rectify it,obviously thats totally up to you hun,i wish you luck for the week and beyond,
Great attitude hun, pick yourself up dust yourself off.... well done on the Bran Flakes though!

Well you learned a leason hon, and others will learn from you too. Plus you've got yourself together quickly. So a small diversion, but you're back on track.
Onwards and downwards!
Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
