Is a cheat the end of the world?? [Belina’s HCG Journey]

Good day all,

I Cheated yesterday!
I had 2 slices of fresh bread and butter!!!! I couldnt resist!! I gave in!  My first cheat in 2 weeks! And the scale this morning was 213. Up 1 pound!
I knew it would be, and I’m not going to beat myself up about it. It’s kinda weird I didn’t cheat with sweets or candy or sugar, Bread and Butter. Let me tell you, Butter has NEVER tasted so good! This diet has cleansed my taste buds! Next time butter shall pass these lips will be in Phase 4! Im back on track now!
I believe the whole measurement thing frustrated me and I was feeling very discouraged, my proper measurements aren’t even close to what I thought they were, well the hips and thighs one anyways. So I’m confessing my sin, and now it’s onwards and downwards(the scale i mean) lol .
Its funny i actually am proud of myself,i didnt completley binge,just 2 pieces of bread and butter . so yes i think i did great as far a cheat goes. I have always been an emoitional eater ,I would eat ,wheither i was hungry or not ,depending on my mood. so im still doing great ,one pound up and now  Im refreshed and will work at it even harder .
Im sure the scale will not be friend for the next little while ,but thats ok ,im still doing great .
So no its not the end of the world ,nor the end of my journey ,just a slight bump in the road.
Till next time folks
Keep On Keeping On!!

    If I was a betting man, I would say you will now stall for the next few days because of the cheat.

      Sounds like to me she’s prepared for it!

      Belina, remember that you have to continue for 21 days after a cheat to get the full benefit. You will have a hard time on phase 3 if you don’t.
      (Or so I have been reading, I personally am only on r1p2d6!)

    Hi Belinda,

    Keep it up girl! I love your Honesty! I did the 45days and lost 30 and I made it threw the 45days without cheating! but boy did I love it when I did after the 48th day and on my way to maintenance. I did the 2 steak days to lose the 4lbs i put on while I cheated over the weekend. I succeeded and went threw my 6weeks of maintenance and have not only kept it off but have been enjoying myself so much with the reprogramming of my eating lifestyle. i still have another round to go to reach my goal but I wanted to encourage you & applaud you all at the same time.
