When I started TSFL I made myself a 90 day goal. I promised myself that I wouldn't cheat ONCE during that 90 days. And I didn't. I lost 33 pounds in 90 days and started to feel better than I have ever felt in my whole life. Once that 90 days was up, I decided just to stay on the program but give myself a few cheat days here and there. It is crazy how that tiny little inch I gave myself can become a mile. During the 90 days, I was so restricted, and had such a clear goal. Now that I have reached that goal, and am kind of in limbo, it is harder to be so strict. I don't really need to loose too much more weight, and to be honest my focus is on trying for another baby, so I am having a hard time figuring out a motive to not cheat. Right now, I am trying to stay as strict as I can when I am at home, or work, but I gotta tell you, when I go to my in-laws house that is full of tempting junk food, it is really tough. I did cheat a bit last night, and I regret it. I want to give myself leeway now and again, but at this point in my journey, I am trying to learn how to have balance. And somehow, this is harder than the restriction.
