I'm retaining fluid.
I'm feeling my clothes are a little firmer.
This is not a failure.
This is not a downward spiral.
This is not permanent.
It is a temporary bump in the road of a successful journey that will continue.
Today I am back on track.
No Christmas cake today, but tomorrow I can plan one small planned piece a day with a cup of tea (as I did each day last week).
There are times when I just need to give myself a break. This is one of those times. What's most important is that I really look after myself during emotionally painful times. Doing really nice things for myself. Taking a hot bubble bath. Soaking in the spa. Watching a movie on the couch instead of doing the chores, just for a bit.
Taking time for me is what I know I need to do, well do, even if it's the tiniest amount of the day. Love yourself enough to do this.
From experience I know that this too shall pass, but right now, I need to love myself even more.
