Thanks guys. :) I'm feeling much better now. I sure did go over my calories... but I am just moving forward. I had a really stressful, emotional day yesterday and I think it triggered some emotional eating for me.

Hi There - I'd just like to add that one of my favorite motivational thoughts is "fall down 8 times, get up 9".

I've been on a journey to improve my health for almost 3 years. I'm maintaining a 95 lbs weight loss. Now if you think I haven't had days in there where i overate, or ate the wrong thing, you would be wrong. What got me to where I am is that i don't let that keep me from getting up the next morning and starting over.

Today is a new day, and you can do this!

I did the same yesterday :( BUT I stopped myself before it turned into a full out binge and although I did go over my calorie goals I'm proud of myself for moving on from it and I'm determined to do better today!

Do you exercise a lot? If you do then check your fitness settings are right because if you get hungry your calorie goal could be too low. Just an idea.. good luck anyway!

Be sure you are eating within your calorie range and know that allowing yourself to get too hungry can be one of the biggest triggers for overindulgence. Eating every 3 hours has been shown to help some members stay on track since this better controls blood sugar levels. And don't forget to add a little protein, too.

I hope this helps! You have done an amazing job!!!

I felt so hungry yesterday and I just couldn't resist temptation. I ate over my calories and I'm super sad. :( I really want to get back into the swing of things and lose some weight, but I feel hungry all the time! I feel like such a failure right now. :(
