Exactly! . Like the tides It is an ebb and flow journey...and it is recommended in order not to get sucked into the undertow... To just flow with it...readjusting as necessary without considering it a setback. I lost ten pounds within the first two months ...some was lack of appetite from meds probably...and, like you, trying to eat more mindfully. Hope today is a restful day. Ice it up and hang in there, friend!
