View Full Version : 48 days........ and my first oops!
07-10-2005, 08:59 AM
my plan was to go out with a few friends, enjoy a salad, chat awhile and go home. i feel just awfull for caving in. i think the big problem was i had to leave early for work and FORGOT to pack my lunch. so by the time we got out i was STARVING. i usually never forget but i did. we went out and i induldged in a coctail,(just one) and some SAD food..... but stayed veggie though. i was doing so well and fell of the wagon. this morning i am back on the saddle again and awoke with my green smoothie..... i was so on top of things and i can't believe i slipped up.
i am always a rock and i was angry later that i caved in but i am only human. i am just venting and need a bit of support.
this place is the best.

48 days is a long time being raw !!!!!
Wowsers Heatherlynn !!!!...............we still love you and don't let one rawless experience discourage you--everything you accomplished is still there.

Heatherlynn, congratulations on going so far! I think you're one of the few that went that long without slipping at least once. And good on you that you got right back up again and started your day with a green smoothie. :) That's the spirit!

ALmost all of us have been there in that very moment. I am glad you shared your experience with us Heather.
One thing I took awhile to learn is let go of that anger at yourself as quickly as possible. It can hold you up a lot longer than you want.
Cheers to you for moving right on, thats how its done. Yeah, clap, clap!!
What a great experience, for look what you can do~you can carry right on no matter the circumstance.
You're my hero!!! ;)

today i am just rawkin on! 100% once again. i do forgive myself but i just needed my cheer leaders at this moment and thank you for that!!!! i was hopeing that i would feel awfull after my sad experience yesterday, or maby that it would taste like crap but :( sadly enough it was good. i am dragging a bit today but all is well. on the flip side i feel that it is out of my system for awhile (wish i could say for good) and i am not craving that type of food at all today. so off i go for my 10mi bike ride, another smoothie, fresh foodies shopping, and i am hopeing to pick up an evening yoga class tonight (if i can fit it in) so messin up and movin on. thanks for all of your encouragement and wisdom.

Heather Lynn, contratulations!! I'm following behind you by a couple of weeks, and know that one day too I will fall, but with the hope of pulling myself back the next morning and continuing this amazing journey. You give me hope. Thanks for sharing.

I love that you've taken this in stride, Heatherlynn. As you should! You seem to be living a well-balanced life keeping food in its proper perspective. Yay for you. You know why it happened with not being prepared and so you'll know to be extra careful about that. It's not a big thing -- you just continued right on. That's the important thing.

Girl, you handled your business - we fall down, but we get up! Doing very well. Take care
