We can forget this and even crave more attention and perfection at this stage. Remind yourself of where you have come from and achieved. You are still moving and moving forward even though the numbers and comments may be at a stand still. You did not do this for that but to be healthy and happy.
Breath and enjoy! You earned it and now can start adapting your new found knowledge and experience in other areas of your life. Do not get down on yourself when the seemingly inhuman feats stop happening, see this as the time to grow and explore the real human "YOU".

I allow myself to mess up on some days. I realize that I am only human and that I am going to make mistakes. The key is to don't be so hard on yourself and to get back in the swing of things the next day. I don't allow myself to quit. I learn from mistakes and get back on track!
I have learned the hard way I am in fact well, human. As obvious as that might sound or be many times we as humans do not want to admit we are fallible. I don't care how hard you try to eat right and exercise there will be temptations.
Don't blame yourself for boo-boo's. For cheating and eating something you may shouldn't have. Spend the time you would have spent being made at yourself getting back on track and keeping your goals in sight. Remember you are human and no one expects any less.
Remembering that I'm human allows me to forgive myself when I mess up. I am my worst critic and sometimes my desire to succeed at something causes me to want to be immortal. If I allow myself to be human in my SPARKS journey, then I know I can do this.
Allowing myself to be human means that when I do my nutritional tracker, I can be honest with myself.
