Sounds like you have already learned from it and know better how to deal with it when you have to face something like that again. Great job for acknowledging it and making the best of it! Situations like that are really tough. You could have done worse! Hang in there!

So at the engagement party this morning there was nothing like I expected. It was all dessert and a little fruit. So I had watermelon and a teeny tiny cupcake (like the size of a walnut). Then I went to brunch with friends. I didn't order the healthiest option but it was two meals in one. Also I didn't do so much damage last night. I actually lost half a pound since the previous day so I feel less bad about it.

I have the same problem. I mess up just a little and then say: it's ALL OVER!! There was a guy on ABC's Extreme Weight Loss show last week and he compared his weight loss to climbing a mountain. (I know that metaphor is used a lot but this one resonated with me.) He said: when climbing, like in making healthy choices, you sometimes stumble or lose your footing. But it doesn't mean that you tumble ALL THE WAY to the bottom. You just stand up where you are, look down and see all the progress you've already made and keep going upward. I thought that was a really good realistic visual to help keep me going.

Sounds like a good plan, Yael! Good luck!
