Everyone will go over their limits from time to time. Dont beat yourself up over it. This will just cause you to throw in the towel entirely. Talk nicely to yourself, like you would a friend or child. You dont deserve self punishment.

I have been learning to forgive myself for slip ups. After losing more than 100 pounds three years ago and gaining all of it back, I was totally discouraged. I have decided to forgive myself and not start a diet but a healthy lifestyle. I am starting back with small changes like writing in a journal and small increments of exercise and tracking what I eat. When I do "mess up", I write it down and go on from there.
We forgive those around us all the time..sometimes for some pretty awful stuff. How come we can't forgive ourselves for that candy bar we ate? why does it send us over the edge and we give up on our promise to get healthy? Forgive yourself brsuh yourself off and let it go...it will take practice but once you learn to forgive yourself the candy bar loses it's power to derail everything and you will stay on track easier and when you fall off getting back on is no sweat.
