Good morning! It was a busy weekend, and I didn't have a lot of time to check in. For those of you still holding strong 20-plus days in, I'm happy to hear that some of the original concepts are now starting to click. It's not a diet. It's not a challenge. It's a new way to think about food and your health. It's a new, better way to take good care of yourself. For some, that's starting to make a lot more sense a few weeks in.
For Jessica, and Robbie, who had a rough weekend and fell into old patterns of behavior... take a moment to think about what thought process led you there, and how you felt during your indulgences, and how you felt after. And then, once you've thought about it, BE DONE with it. The past is the past, and all that counts is what you do today. If your self-described poor choices didn't make you feel better, didn't make you feel healthier, then learn from that. The next time you are tempted to make those choices again, remember how the end result you hoped to get from those choices (satisfaction, comfort, enjoyment) never materialized. And then make a different, better choice, and find satisfaction, comfort and enjoyment elsewhere.
Start over. Welcome back.
