Whoops...

I spoke too soon. In my last post, I said I was strong enough to resist temptation, and during the Independence Day weekend, I was not. 

It wasn't the cookout foods that got me. It was the booze. Okay, and maybe some pizza. Even though I hate pizza, my intoxicated self thought eating a giant slice was a good idea.

The lesson to be learned here is that slip-ups do happen, and it's okay. However, it is not okay to beat yourself up after they happen. I used to do it all the time, causing myself to binge even more.

You find your true strength when you fall off the horse and get right back on.  Everyone makes mistakes, and I have finally learned that there is no sense in making it worse by throwing yourself a pity party.

So I gained 2 pounds over the weekend. So what? I realized what I did wrong, and hopefully, I will do better next time!

  1. You got this girl! Maybe, we should go back to pretending that drinking makes you sick (even the wine) haha.
