Much better morning today. Got my swim in. Redirected my "fell off the wagon so I'm depressed" to "I deserve to be healthy and today is another day!" I find that it's all in my mind. I can defeat myself with my thinking.When you have used food for comfort in the past, it is easy to slip into thinking that you are depriving yourself. Not! If I remember that I want to change my unhealthy habits to healthy ones because I deserve to feel good and be healthy, if I remember that none of my bad habits made me happy, if I remember that my bad habits depressed me and the new ones make me happy, if I remember that one or two bad days are just that- one or two bad days and not a lifetime of bad habits whichever way I want to go etc.....I can get back on track! We can do anything we decide to do. I like to remind myself of that because I often feel controlled by life. P.S. OK, I was scared to get on the scale, but made myself and YEAH! I didn't gain anything! What a relief! It is so hard to get those stupid pounds off! I was unhappy with myself for falling off the wagon! Yeah! Have a Blessed Healthy Day!
