I think we all go through phases where we are more dedicated to our goals. At first I struggled with the idea of messing up the diet!! AHHH scary. Now I realize that there will be days (or weeks) where I am picking up and dropping off kids, painting the house, doing the laundry, and just trying to maintain the day to day, and I don't have the energy to think and prepare healthy meals. I realize that is is OK to fall of fa little as long as I come back to it. It's interesting to feel the immediate difference in my body and energy levels just from a meal or two. I think its good to be aware, but better to stay on board. If you have fallen off, COME BACK!! If you need a little motivation, re-read "The China Study" or read it for the first time, It makes changing your diet, lifestyle, and pants size a no brainer!
