what a strange week..Rollar coaster for sure. I have not held on to a healthy lifestyle. Many days just felt hungry..real hunger..would feel I didn't need more to eat..but ended up grabbing bad choices..probably because I didn't acknowledge my hunger. So..then I showed a weight loss. Thought maybe I needed more calories (I have reached and maintained my goal a short while and have started ST, which is why I cam to that conclusion) bu the calories I added in were in processed 'stuff'. I lost my energy to exercise and I felt that vicious cycle begin. I skipped the gym today, felt energetic though and was very productive, but the eating was not so healthful. The scales are moving back up and I am feeling like I have lost control, but as I always tell others, I am learning how to get back in control faster. All is not lost (or gained in the case)...just a few bad days in a lifetime is not bad.

Could use the support and encouragement though.

Hope you all are hanging in there during the seasonal temptations.

    Yeah, I understand. I have not been as energetic lately because of how I'm eating. Then I don't feel like working out...the cycle repeats. This morning I felt like my body *needed* to move. I did some short dance moves I had read about in a DailySpark blog. It was great. It was the perfect amount of movement to feel good again. It's great. If you want to try it you can try it from this website. It's good when you may not feel like doing much but you *need* to do something to feel good. I ate a little better today. I'm working on ending my cycle with empty calories or less nutritious choices. Hope you feel better.

    I had a rough day yesterday too, this maintaining is not easy. I am pushing myself to do minimum 10mins exercise then I end up doing a little more. When I start on rubbish food I just want more,
    Apples and oranges will never replace chocolate! Just never give up we all have bad days but we are still here,

    yeah it happens. Sticking to it, even if you mess up is what counts. But you could also solve your problem by eating 5 small meals a day. and when you are out, just make sure you have a healthy snack in your bag. but you can do it. It certainly is a learning process and once you gotten it down, its not a diet, but a life style. eating right and exercise will be like second nature.
