I've strayed a few times and let the weight creep up a bit but fortunately I've caught myself before it got too out of hand, got right back on induction, and got those extra 10 or so pounds off before I put back everything I had worked so hard to lose.

Don't feel ashamed, there are many here who have fallen off the wagon and been run over and chased it down and got back on. You can, and you will, do it too.

I forget exactly how the old proverb goes or to whom it is attributed but something along the lines of "fall down 9 times, get up 10!"

In other words - DON'T GIVE UP!
Appreciate you taking the time to post. Thanks for the encouragement.
