You have fallen off the wagon, it happens! Now get yourself back on track as soon as possible NOW, not tomorrow but right now! Here are some tips to help you get back on track:
That means that you will make mistakes and slip once in a while. Use this blip to help you learn from the experience, remember your best teacher is your last mistake.
Emotional hunger can’t be filled with food. Eating may feel good in the moment, but the feelings that triggered the eating are still there, you often feel worse, it's important to stop thinking of food as a way to cope. You can change how you cope with your emotions without turning to food to numb, comfort or distract you from them.
Keep a diary in which you write down how you felt after your blip whether emotional or physical. Admit to how this has affected you… ie headaches the following day, guilty feelings, grumpiness with family and colleagues. In remembering how bad you felt can help keep you on track next time.
By getting support from family and friends when you most need it will help keep you focused and will help give you the boost you need when you are tempted. Use the Slim & Save Facebook Groups to get additional help and motivation that you need from other members on plan. And don’t forget we have our dedicated Customer Care Team whom are always available 7 days a week.
You may need something that will keep you on plan, something that you can have which you can share with your family so you don`t feel left out and tempted to have a little off their plates. Why not try a cheeky "fake-away" maybe. Check out our recipes section and save it to your home screen on your phone. Plan ahead, it will definitely prevent you from feeling you are missing out.
By seeing members who have reached goal weight is a great motivator for other slimmers who are still on their journey. Slim & Save members success stories.
Now that you are back on track get yourself a motivational quote or mantra to repeat to yourself each morning and throughout the day. Something like, “Every day in every way I am approaching my ideal weight”. Or something that means something personal to you. You can always search the internet for motivational quotes and choose one that will resonate with you personally.
Above all, never give up. One, two or even three blips can never erase every second, hour, day, week, month you have spent being 100%!
