  •  I think "bad" is relative. (8+ / 0-)

    Your body can handle a little extra toxic load once in a while. It's when we're exposed to toxins 24/7 that we get into trouble. So, and occasional off the wagon event might be good for you -- if it's worth the "cheat" and it makes you happy.

    My problem is turning around immediately and getting back on that wagon. I'll sometimes treat myself and wind up still treating myself a week later. And then I get what I call The Last Supper Syndrome, and want to have just one more treat before I go on the wagon again. I've got to learn to make follow up rule for those little cheats!

    But I think you crave what you've been eating. Maybe that's why I've got to have a Last Supper after a week of eating like an idiot.  :)

    •  I agree, and I hear you, too. (6+ / 0-)

      Unfortunately for me, some of the side effects of the meds I've been on have caused me to put on weight--a fair amount in the two years I've been on them. (That long already?) So I not only need to lose that weight, but the extra weight I'd been carrying anyway when I got sick to begin with.
      It's doable. My dosage has recently dropped, so that does help. And all the advice I get about early bed, good sleep, etc. etc. does matter, too. But it takes discipline and focus--so that means I really need to call it a night! ;)
      Great series all around. Glad you all did it.
