I’m haunted by leftover Halloween candy! It’s in my house, my office, it’s half price in the stores… it’s everywhere! Couple that with FOUR out-of-state trips over the past six weeks and I’ve been way off track!

So what to do? I could stay off track and retool on Monday, next month or even on January 1, 2017 or I can get OFF the struggle bus and back on track TODAY.

I have worked too hard to let it all slide, so here are 8 things I’m doing this week to get myself back on track:

#1 Forgive myself.

#2 Take small steps.

Truly sustainable weight loss, and truly sustainable habits, are not radical. I’m changing my life, no need to cause myself whiplash by changing everything all at once. Instead, I’m taking it one step at a time, one meal at a time, one healthy decision at a time.
