I had an off day today. My daughter had a softball tournament and we weren't allowed to bring in any food or drinks from home into the stadium. Also, since we were out late we got Subway sandwiches for dinner. and yes, I had some soda. So I hope the day I had today doesn't completely mess up my weigh in for Monday. I'm going to have to be extra good Sunday.

I think this is a Dr. Phil ism, just because you had a fender bender doesn't mean you have to total the car. You had an off day but you can minimize the damage by getting back on track today. I wish I could put the lego cop picture up here and say STEP AWAY FROM THE SODA. You get the picture. You can do it.

Libby, thanks for the visual. lol. I have been up all night again and I'm back to drinking water all night. Just gotta keep it going. I also plan on having my ol' staple of atkins with milk to help me stay on track and not mindlessly eat junk. Thanks for the encouragement!

I like that "Dr Philism" about the car. Though I am starting to think of my weight gain as a train wreck.

I think you and the soda is like me and the wine!! It's that indulgence that we know we know hinders our success. Don't be too hard on yourself though...you had some soda...but not a 2L bottle!! So brush yourself off and move forward...right? We have a challenge and goal ahead of us!

thanks Debbie. yeah, the soda is difficult for me. But the good news is that I'm keeping my eye on that Jan 4th goal and I was right back on track today. a few *sips* of soda (hardly even enough to measure), but the rest has been water. I just put pineapple in my infuser as a matter of fact. I'm not going to be easily derailed this time. I'm so glad I have you ladies here to cheer me on!
