If You Fall Down, STAND UP!
Posted Saturday, September 8, 2012 at 4:54 PM

I fell down yesterday. It was Friday, which is about the only explanation/excuse needed, really. In the spirit of the Kickstart, I decided to try a Mexican restaurant nearby that I haven't visited. Well, the avocado margarita was interesting and good, Mexican beer is good, and I ended up with veggie fajitas much higher in oil than I like. They probably hid some queso in there somewhere too. Live and learn.

It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, it only matters how many times you stand up. I think I'm paraphrasing a boxing coach, or maybe my grandfather. Anyway, today I stood up. Garbanzo beans in the crockpot for tonight's ratatouille and black bean chili that I didn't get to earlier in the week.

Did you stumble? Did you fall? Doesn't matter. Just stand right back up and move forward!

Good luck to everyone heading into Week 2.

Good points, Vegpedlr. I was thinking a similar thing.

Theodore, are you also on the McDougall discussion board? I feel like I already know you and it's kinda creeping me out!

Yes I'm on the McDougall forum as well. In fact I was just reading your post about Dean Ornish vs Agatson. Good points.

There's quite a few people here who are on the McDougall boards as well. And vice versa.

Good, now I don't feel creepy. I've never come across to a Kickstart, thinking "I already know this stuff," but I did to support my sister and a friend. I'm really glad I did! This is an awesome project. and I'm really excited to hang out here and offer up whatever support my experience provides. Even if it is just a dumb joke.

Vegpedlr,

Wild4Stars is one of the people I was referring to who are also on the McDougall boards. You probably recognise her.

Watch out for her though. She's trouble.

I haven't been on the McDougall boards lately. Someone started a facebook group McDougall Friends and it's a much friendlier place.

Vegpdlr - Thanks for the support. Had a fall on Thursday did as you say and got back up feeling even stronger!
Wild4Stars - question, I was excited to learn about the face book page McDougall Friends (been following MAX Weighloss w/Dr. McDougall plan) is it a closed group and I think I asked to join but not sure - I'm not great at facebook. Is it a closed group?
Thanks for the help!

It is a closed group, if you want to PM me your facebook name I think I can send you an invitation. It's really a very fun and helpful group. We create fun challenges, share recipes and ideas. I have enjoyed it more than the McDougall forums.

Thank you! I did "friend" them and I have been enjoying reading all the great advice this afternoon.
Thanks again.

THIS is the secret of winners. Not never falling down. It's in the getting back up. You go vegpedlr!

And the McDougall Friends fb place is loads of fun - another place to stay connected beyond the Kickstart!
