Taking Responsibility

The one thing that has kept me on track is to take responsibility for all my choices, not to blame others or even myself for the choice, and not to make excuses. The choice and ultimate outcome is totally my responsibility. It all comes down to what I choose to do. The choice is mine.

Don't Wait to Get Back on Track

Too often we play the game of I start again tomorrow, Monday or next week. The secret is stop doing the negative as soon as you can don't wait. If it means throwing out that last bite, cookie or whatever the case maybe do it. Start now making right choices.

Forgive yourself

Forgive yourself and talk to your self gently. Negative self talk will only negate all of the positive momentum that you have given yourself. emoticon

I read success stories and blogs just to get psyched up, the Just get right back tracking food. Once that is back on track add a small goal....and another....just like in the beginning.

Go back to the basics

When I fell into a slump, it really helped me a lot to just go back to the basics. I started out again with small goals, do-able workouts, and tracking what I ate at least a few days a week. I am getting back into doing it all on a daily basis. Just do it the best you can ONE DAY AT A TIME.

Be Prepared

It's going to happen so be prepared. Have some yummy healthy meals in the freezer waiting for you to slip up. Then when you do, you will know just what to eat for the next day or two after the slip. Make an exercise plan too.

Self Forgiveness

Once I got over the I have blown it attitude and realized this is a life style change it has all fallen into place. That is not to say that there is not lots of room for improvement, just that I can now accept what has happened and move ahead instead of down. Keep going everyone!

Give yourself permission to "fail"

I'm a recovering perfectionist who used to think it was better not to try than to try and fail. Now I know better. If I fail, it means I'm trying. As long as I keep trying, one more time than I fail, I'm not a failure!

Lose the "All or Nothing" Mentality

It's important to ease back into your healthy habits the same way SparkPeople started you slowly when you first came to the site. Try to focus on the things that are holding you back: if you are reluctant to commit to a full workout, try doing just 10 minutes a few times a day. emoticon

Increase your protein!

When I slip up, it's because I've been gradually adding more carbs back into my diet, which lead to more (bad) carb cravings. I start feeling out of control. When I increase my protein again, suddenly it doesn't take nearly as much effort to stay on track.
