The important thing is that you already own it! You admitted it was a binge, you wrote it down, now forget it and move forward. We all take a step backwards sometimes. It's OK. TOMORROW is not another day.... start now and you will be OK

I've had a few binges myself lately, so I can totally relate. We just have to keep on trying. Life can be so hard, we have to let it make us stronger. We can't give up!
You are not the only one. I have those days as well. Just log it and move on.

You are not alone!!! I think the bigger problem would be if you didn't feel bad about it. You are on the right path. As long as you make a conscious decision to pick back up where you left off before the blunder you will be fine.
I mess up at least once (or maybe twice) a week. I try not to beat myself up about it. I know Im not perfect and will have some days when i just want to eat comfort food. I to try to make better choices when I do and portion control.
I have been under the weather for the last few days and unable to work out, I have eaten fast food (too lazy to cook), I will most likly eat a piece of chocolate (or two) today, in fact I am eating a few donut holes this morning, and might over do it this evening. But its ok...I will get back on track and balance it all out. Tomorrow is another day!
Thanks for all the positive feedback and pick me ups. Today is a new day...although I did start it off with a little chocolate. Hey it's Valentine's Day! Yah, it's TOM also, so that was probably a huge trigger too! Today is a new day!

I ate 1200 over my limit yesterday... Just gotta get right back on track. sometimes eating a little extra can kick your metabolism into high gear. I try to over eat 1 or 2 times a week and it is actually helping me.

THere are worse things than over eating. I agree with everyone else. Accept the fall and move on. It isn't the fall the matters, the getting up part is the important part.
I am so sorry for whatever might have caused the emotional binge. I sometimes do it and feel so terrible/guilty/self-loathing afterwards. I read this some weeks ago when it happened to me: "Who am I really hurting if I binge ...? It isn't going to affect the person (or thing) I am mad at it is only going to hurt me and I don't want them (or it) to get that satisfaction. Keep up the good work and keep eating healthy."
The important thing is not to let that cause you to go off track. You still have a victory: you still tracked it! Tomorrow is a new day and we move forward . Regarding the emotional side, you could consider confiding in a trustworthy friend or write it down what happened and your feelings (together with what you ate). That tends to give me a sense of reality regarding the situation.
