Why it's OK to 'start again' ...



We see it all the time from the weight loss purists 'oh she's starting again... EVERY Monday she's starting again...' Getting healthy for some people is a 24/7 job and they can kinda look down on those of us who 'go mad' at the weekend... they tut at our loss of self control, they give knowing nods when we're tweeting pics of our G&Ts on a Saturday night and are never shocked when we're up at the scales... they're right of course in one respect, giving yourself permission to go mad all the time isn't healthy but I love people who live their life to the full and the definition of that is different for everyone. Some people have a fancy cream cake on a Saturday with a full fat latte, some people live for their Chinese every week, for some it's a bottle of wine on a Saturday watching telly, while others just want cocktails with their friends. 'Starting again' just means you're living your life and still not giving up on your goals! How many times have you had disastrous weekend and let it slide for the whole week? Before you know it a month has passed and you're in a worse place that if you had just enjoyed that treat and got back in the game straight away! I'm not a purist, I love living my life to the full... like most people I learned from a young age that life is short and in 50 years time no one is going to care if I had a gin and tonic at the weekend but I know if I keep chipping away at my weight loss I'll still feel a bit better about me every day! So, draw the lines in the sand, start afresh and wipe a slate clean it's Monday and we have the whole week ahead of us! x

  5. Very good advice! And you are SO right about slipping up and getting back in the groove rigt away again. It doesn't have to be a full on landslide if eating!
