Last Saturday I had the stomach flu and then this past week I've eaten anything and everything. Plus I have not been to the gym all week. I need to get back on track tomorrow, and back to the gym during lunch. I've eaten chips, pie, McDonalds, all weekend. I know I've gained about 5 pounds this week. How do I deal with not being so hard on myself and just chalking this up to a "diet & exercise" vacation? I almost packed up my things to drive to the gym today after eating a pudding/pie cup that must have had 1,000 calories in it, but that's just stupid. That's repeating the cycle of eat, then exercise. What I need to do is eat healthy, maintain portion control and go to the gym during my lunch break from work. I know I will drop the weight if I do that. But if I start obsessing like I am now, and start beating myself up, it will be even harder to get back on track tomorrow. Can someone offer me some advice on dealing with the guilt I feel from my diet/exercise free for all this past 7 days?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
