[pullquote]Everyone has a bad day or weekend.  Pick yourself up and keep going![/pullquote] We have all experienced a momentary lapse in judgment.  I did it this weekend myself.  You meant to just grab a cup of coffee on your drive to work this morning.  You stopped at Starbucks, and there it was staring back at you with that tempting look you could not resist.  That pastry or doughnut looks so good and it is not in your stomach.  You gave in to that craving and now you have regret and guilt and are tempted to take the rest of the day “off” because you already ruined it. 

Losing weight is a mental challenge.  No matter what plan you are on, the key is focus and control.  You had a momentary slip that could get much worse if you do not maintain or return to self-control.  You need to maintain control of your food intake and exercise on a regular basis. One moment of indulgence does not torpedo your plan to get more healthy.  

You have plenty of opportunities to get back on track, and it is not too late to make today a success.  Just remember, being defeated can be a temporary condition, but if you give up, it becomes a permanent condition.

The bottom line: Weight loss and maintenance is possible.  The only thing standing between you and success is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself.  Never treat today like the end, it is just another beginning.  Consider each new start as a chance to take control of your diet and health.
