The old feeling of "It's ruined again" started to creep in, but then I read KCLAnderson's interview in Grace magazine and was reminded again that healthy living and weight loss/maintenance is a practice, not something you stop and start:
I have come to believe that there really is no such thing as a backslide. It's all part of moving forward, even when it doesn't feel like it.
There are many clichés in the dieting world: "Get back on the wagon," "Get back on track," "Start again tomorrow (or on Monday,)" and so on. I like to think that it's more a matter of continuing from right where I am.As Russ and Jeff on Fat2Fit Radio say, "You can fail a diet but you can't fail a lifestyle."
