I have the same problem. I might only go off for one or two days, but it was a struggle when I realized it and got back on. For me, routine has been the best way to refocus myself quickly. When I break the routine is when I have a bad day; trigger the routine, and then keep pushing ahead. My usual day starts with a green smoothie and a walk, so when I catch myself going back to old habits, I use one of those to "start over," no matter what time of day it is.

I am hoping that SparkPeople will allow me to get on track to lose the 40 lbs I gained after quiting smoking. Wish me luck to get motivated. I have done my 20 minutes of exercise.

Life does have it's ups and downs and when you have a disappointing day it is best to release it and tell yourself a new story. Reliving failures just keeps that defeating energy alive. Let it go and make today a healthy, thriving and fun day!!
Seems as though when I get off track I find it very difficult to get back on. Often times I undo, in a very short time, the progress I've made up until that point. I know we all have bad days occasionally, but how do we get right back on before doing so much damage? What do you do?
Nothing tastes as good as weight loss feels -- The future is what we make it, one decision at a time, one day at a time.
