dunno what the hell i was thunking but just made kids lunch and ate a ham sandwich iv never cheated in nearly 50 days i hate myself i ate two pieces of bread butter and ham.. what will this do to me feel like crying..:cry:
(((hotty25))). Sometimes we do things (ok eat things) without thinking. If we didn't we probably wouldn't be here. Draw a line under it (as everyone says) and get straight back on your diet. But remember how it made you feel when you realised what you'd done. I don't think a ham sandwich will do much harm weight wise but it might knock you out of ketosis and make you feel hungry again (I don't know).
Don't beat yourself up about it! Just carry one as if you didn't have it. Don't (do what I would have done in the past) use it as an excuse to fall completeley off the waggon. 50 days is brilliant! I'm only on day 15 and if I could do as well as you I would be chuffed! Hang in there with the help of this forum. The support is amazing. You are only human.
As the others have said, don't beat yourself up about it and don't give up because of it - it's just one small blip and won't do much harm diet wise but could do more harm if you stress over it. It could knock you out of ketosis as the body now has some carbs to use up, but if you get straight back on the wagon you'll soon get back into ketosis again, it's not like at the beginning when it takes 3-5 days. You may feel hungry later, but stay focussed, keep drinking the water and you'll soon be back where you were. One ham sandwich will not do much damage to your weight loss, as the amount of cals is not that horrendous, but you may retain water for a day or two if you WI is coming up.
Keep your chin up and get straight back on board :hug99:
