I screwed up big time

Postby missykalo » March 24th, 2007, 9:50 pm

Forgot my lunch on the way to work - not used to packing - and there is nothing good/healthy at work. So ........ I had a bunch of junk that probably put back on every ounce that I've lost the past few days. Any advice?

Well as I understand it, the only thing you can do is get back on the program. I've read on here several times that when you fall off the wagon, to simply get back up and get on it again. Don't let your mistake bring you down, accept it, and move on...goodluck :)

We just start over. Immediately. And learn to plan better next time. Always carry a few shakes in your bag or a bar. Go over RIGHT NOW and put some envelopes in your purse.

Like Biki said. I have a extra box of shakes and a shaker cup at work. That I do not touch unless I forgot my lunch bag.

My lifesaver in those instances are the Ready-to-Drink shakes. I buy them by the case because #1 I like them, and #2 they are extremely convenient. I keep a couple in my car on those days I'm stuck without my stuff. I also keep a stash of stuff in my desk drawer at work. They don't carry so well in your purse so as others have suggested, put a couple packets in your purse. All you need is bottled water to complete your meal.

Hang in there! You are changing your eating habits and recognizing your downfalls. We all have them.... as long as we recognize them and stay on track as much as we can, you will be successful. Brush yourself off and get back on track. You will love the results!!

Hope you do not keep them in the car when it is summer. That would be a bad situation. <img src="http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/23/23_30_111.gif" alt="SmileyCentral.com" border="0"><img border="0" src="http://plugin.smileycentral.com/http%253A%252F%252Fimgfarm%252Ecom%252Fimages%252Fnocache%252Ftr%252Ffw%252Fsmiley%252Fsocial%252Egif%253Fi%253D23%252F23_30_111/image.gif">

Trust me I have done that and not a pretty sight.

I keep a couple of powdered shakes in my desk drawer and the glove boxes. Mike keeps a case of RTDs in his classroom. And I've usually got an extra bar in my purse. (A two-bar day is sometimes better than other choices in a pinch.)

In an absolute emergency, 8 oz of skim milk will work as a substitute meal replacement, but don't do more than 24 hours of it. (Yes, a skim milk latte will work, too! But don't do it too often. Best to save that little item for real emergencies so it doesn't become a habit.)

It's all a learning process, Missy; it's all in the course corrections. And LOOK at your loss anyway!! Way to go, girl!! Your body's lovin' this program, isn't it? :mrgreen:

Word of caution: Do what you can to NOT go off intentionally! It is SOO much harder to restart all together based on personal experience.

Have an incredible week, Missy! Can't wait to see where you are next Sunday!! :cheermed:
Here's to our mutual success! :buddies: --Diana

You must must must get back on the horse! You can't fret over it and let it get you down. Get up get on the horse ASAP and be 100% compliant! Most important, learn and keep some product in your desk. I have 2-3 days work of stuff at the office in the corner and replenish when I screw up and use one of my "spares" from work.
