Use it as motivation. It's not a good feeling and you can control things so it doesn't happen again.

It happens -- we all slip up now and then. I did it just the other night, for no reason at all -- just kept eating until I finally decided to go upstairs before I did any more damage. And then got right back to my regularly scheduled maintenance program in the morning.
Sounds like you did the same -- realized what was happening, and then more importantly you didn't let it convince you to give up. One night is NOT going to undo your hard work, and if you get right back down to business, it won't even be much of a speed bump on your way to your goal. Over time, you'll get better at preventing "bad nights," until they are few and far between. You're back on track today, and that's what really matters.
I know what you mean--there is nothing worse than being so full you feel sick!
I did my best today, tomorrow I will do even better.

Congratulations, you are normal, the same as million of other people dieting and tiring of it, eating some extras, and then back on the horse again the next day. It's a lifetime thing, not over in a few weeks or months or "cured"................just keep on moving along. It's ok.

It's OK to binge, just don't make it a habit. Remember it took a long time to put the weight on, you won't gain everything back in one night. Just jump back on the train the next day and move forward. This is a lifestyle change not a diet.
Lastly, take a look back and ask yourself what set you in this mood in the first place, did you have a stressful day or crave sugar? If so, look for solutions, if it was a sugar crave, maybe just having a little sugar a day and work it into your calories will keep you from a binge again.

The success is that you realized what you were doing and stopped!
Also the success is that you got up this morning determined to start all over!
I have had more of those zombie binge mode moments than I care to count. Just keep on swimming
I hit zombie mode last night and just munched out. It was bad. I feel so ick this morning because of how much junk I ate last night. The only thing I am proud of is again I realized what I was doing and stopped. Now if I can get the portion part of it under control I'll be good.
