Like PF said. It happens. You are asking your body to both mentally and physically change a lifestyle that you have fed for a long time. You will make it. Don't beat yourself over it. Just start again tomorrow. We all have faith in you and are here to lend support.

You'll never be perfect just take it one day at a time and try to make those bad eating choices less. That one meal won't make you gain weight, doing this type of eating habitually will. I had to program my self for everyday foods and sometimes foods, there is no way that I could go through life beating myself up for not being perfect. If we had it in us to be perfect, then none of us would have weight issues. Better habits take a while to stick, but they will over time, but nothing will sabotage you quicker than guilt.

Keep up the good work, you are stronger than your guilt.

I think if you totally deprive yourself, you'll feel cheated and eat more, and that doesn't make for a lifestyle change. If, for one or two days a week, you can have some guilty pleasures, you won't feel deprived and might be able to stick to the eating plan for the rest of the week. Not to say eat a whole cake or a quart of ice cream, but a bit of each won't hurt once or twice a week.

Think I'm off to bed, it's 10pm here and I'm exausted. Have a gr8 evening
Keep us posted, Snip. We care.

I am really and sincerely ashamed to say this, but I just started smoking due to too much stress in my life. Most people don't believe what I tell them it is. I feel they have no time to understand or try to encourage They rather ignore and tell me this stress I am going through is not happening. I know God is only One who is permitting this and evidently HE feels with His help I am strong enough to endure this. It is just something that I did not cause. It is only when you are trying to defend yourself you reach out and try to stop it. (Maybe some of you remember what I am referring to) It has gone on for so long. I was married 25 years to abuser and now I got another one. I realize when people try to abuse others they themselves must be miserable.

This smoking does kill my appetite and confidence. I was so health conscious now, I really don't care. Life is too short and I do what I can to accept it. My self worth is shot. This is exactly what abusers want to hear. So very sad how people can't let someone try to live their life and I don't have too long.

Sorry to be a downer but life is not fair just have to live it.

Got my results, had more test done and I'm Pre- Diabetic whatever that may be. Apparently very high risk for developing diabetes. The Doc put me on Metformin and I must eat a diabetic friendly diet.

At least I don't have to inject myself, thank Goodness for that!!!!

Thank you Addie for the advise and everyone else that gave support and advise.
