Forgiving Myself

Last night Ross and I went out, and I had two drinks... after dancing we came home and had a small meal... healthy, but I had already exceeded my points for the day. I woke up this morning trying to figure out how to make up for the points... I don't know how many points my drinks were (I'll have to figure those out)... either way no matter how many points they are - there is no way I can make up for those.

I've decided to journal everything I ate, forgive myself for over-eating, and move on. Today's a new day, so I'm starting over. Of course since I spent all my flex points I won't have any of those, but I'm allowing myself my full 25 points. I'm human, I'm not perfect. Of course this doesn't mean I'm going to be doing this every week... but this time in order to stay on track I have to just let it go.

Weight Watcher's is a forgiving program, so I need to learn to be forgiving of myself too. I have to remember I'm in this for the long haul, and on all long journeys usually there are bumps in the road. You get past them and move on... that's what I'm going to do.

I hope you have a great Sunday...

You are right...forgive yourself and move on. This is a lifestyle and a journey, and there are going to be tough times along the way. As long as you are being accountable you will succeed. You know what you need to do, and I have not doubt that you will pull it together! Don't give up!

Thank you for the encouragement. I have to remember to be forgiving of myself especially when it comes to Weight Watchers. So far, I had a few a bad program weekend... yesterday, I went over my points by 2... but Monday I stayed with in points range, actually had 4 points left over. I feel good and confident that I'll still have a loss this week... even if it's just a tiny one.
