I felt I had to go all-caps in the titling of this post. I want all posters and especially the silent readers on this board to know that there is never any reason to be embarrassed for falling off the wagon. The most important things in life are so rarely a one-shot deal. Your personal health is an ongoing adventure, sure to be crowded in with small failures along the way (why did I watch basketball all day yesterday, and get NO exercise?).

Please stay engaged, continue to post, and remain willing to think highly of yourself in good times and bad. There is no reason to hang your head and disappear if you blow it on a single day or week. You'll find this group incredibly welcoming of those who fail in an instant, only to succeed for a lifetime.
