    How do you go on trying to lose weight after you've eaten something that's bad for you?

    You treat each day as a seperate day. Losing weight is about balance anyway and not allowing yourself to have certain things will make you crave them even more. If I know I'm going out for a big celebration meal or evening out I make sure I'm sensible for most of the day beforehand. I'll also make time for some exercise. Something that's 'bad' for you is ok now and again so don't torture yourself about it ...just don't overindulge:-)

    You have to enjoy life too!

      Souther29,
      Thanks for your inspiration. I like the idea of thinking of each day as separate. That way you don't have to feel pressured. You can look at your week or your month and then dedide how you did. Good advice.

    A person can not lose weight and put the wrong thing in their body.

      Victoria,
      That's getting right to the point. You sound like you have a good strong belief on the subject. You look nice and fit in your photo.
      Thanks,
      Lisa

    That's a tough one. For me, it is much like an alcoholic taking one little drive - then boom not only have I fallen off the diet wagon, but I have been dragged along behind it a mile and a half.

    I try very hard to forgive myself the mistake, and move on.  Eat it, own it and then put it behind me (well not literally - that is after all part of what we are trying to lose!;-)

      duffsmom,
      Well at least you still have a sense of humor about it. I guess we have to or we'd all give up with our programs.
      Here's trying,

    Get up the next morning, look at yourself in the mirror and say, "I'm back on my diet!" and get back on it. 

    Souther29 is so right, one day at a time.  Sugar is hardest for me, if I have any I don't want to quit.  For breakfast a tofu shake (half cup skim milk, 1 slice tofu, ripe banana, 3 strawberries, blend in the Osterizer) has enough sweet to satisfy and keeps me full until time for the next meal.

    Good luck. I'm on HCG for the second time but with a little dairy this time, can't do without it for 40 days again. It slows me down but still losing.

      Gerry,
      I guess it doesn't matter how many times we say we're back on the diet. You're right we just have to get back to it without fail.
      Thank you very much,
      Lisa

    Like others say, put it behind you and move on. If this is too difficult, take an honest look at yourself and decide if you want to lose weight more than enjoying the pleasure of the slip. Only you can decide.

      IIDONO,
      A slip is never good no matter what way you look at it, but you're right you do have to move on.

    Okay so what you messed up a day, there is tomorrow. You didn't put the weight on in one day, so don't kill yourself trying to take it off in one day.

      DommaLeigh,
      That sounds like a code to live by. Thanks so much.

    Try not to let that destroy all of your dieting efforts. People make mistakes and sometimes a treat is better than depriving yourself. I wrote a hub on how to lose weight the healthy way. If you want you can check it out here: http://larakern.hubpages.com/hub/diet-a … ealthy-way

    Good luck in your weight loss efforts! Remember, there really is no quick fix. It takes a lot of hard work and determination to be healthy.
