Slippery Slope

It seems that one bad decision tends to lead me down the wrong path every time and I need to find my way back on the weight loss wagon. Ever since "the birthday cake" I have been eating more than I should and even bought and binged on chocolate covered pretzels (a trigger food for me) the other day.

Enough is enough. I'm clawing my way back. I will not give in to the muffin's siren call today, I will stick to the fruit, eat a healthy salad for lunch, go shopping for healthy dinner stuff and get back on the wagon.

Sometimes it isn't just that one piece of cake or one slip up but what you do after that that really matters.


  1. Isn't it amazing how slippery that slope gets and how quickly. This past weekend we celebrated my son's 9th birthday. The diet went from bad to worse - Last night while eating a slice of pizza, I had a 'no more' moment. So back on track today :-)

    Before we know it - our binge will be but a memory and hopefully not sticking to any body part.


  2. That's exactly how I am. Every one says to just go right back to your plan after a bad decision, but it's just not that easy.

  3. It's so weird how that happens. I've been like that lately and it's just taking too long to lose this winter weight--geez, it'll be winter again before we know it!

    Good luck with the battle :)

  4. I have the same problem. When I am on program, I am ON program. But stop and have a sandwich or a slice of cake and it sends me into a spiral more often than not. I am at the point right now of getting back on track and sent myself back to basics. I am not allowed to even consider veering off program for even one bite of food for the next month. Sometimes I have to send myself to timeout where I don't get to make choices - I just do what I have to do.

  5. Yep, I'm the same way, I have that f**k it mentality when I slip up, just continue with the self-sabotage.

    Good for you for realizing it and getting back on track! xoxoxo

  6. I find that its the sugar. I can do so well and not have cravings, and then when I overeat or indulge, for days afterwards I just want to keep on eating. thats why I truly believe sugar and other processed goods are super addictive. you are so right though - its how you handle yourself afterwards and if you can get back on track, soon the cravings will go away and you will feel in control again.

  7. I agree.. .it's OK to have something 'evil' sometimes... just not to continue doing it!

  8. "Sometimes it isn't just that one piece of cake or one slip up but what you do after that that really matters" --

    Yes you are so right!! Every teeny litte food choice is its own separate decision and we have to remind ourselves of that all the time.
    Hope you find your way back and keep us updated on how you're doing!!!!!

  9. I'm clawing my way back too! Nice to know I'm not alone. I know you can do it.
