Update: I'm finally home now, and I am happy to say that I did not eat dinner. I know that you all suggested that I eat, but I just wasn't hungry. I have a major problem of overeating, and today's experience was a turning point, I think. I ate the pizza at work NOT because I was tempted, but because my stomach was growling and I was hungry.

I'm happy I ate that pizza because I did so for the right reasons -- I was working late, and it was almost my normal dinner time. I was hungry. I ate two slices, and it stopped my hunger. Then, I got home, and didn't feel hungry. So I brushed my teeth and called it a night.

As I get closer and closer to my goal weight, my calorie range becomes more important. For two years, I have been trying to lose this last 25 pounds, and it comes down to nutrition. And as today's battle shows, listening to my body is key.

Thank you all for your encouragement!!!

I agree-eat dinner when you get home. It's ok to go over every once in a while (as long as you don't make it a habit). I can pretty much guarantee, unless you have superman's willpower, that if you don't eat dinner, you will be pigging out later tonight/early morning, which will make it worse.

No you DIDN'T blow it!! When you get home eat your dinner!!

I actually allowed one day per every two weeks to eat whatever I wanted, when I was in weight-loss mode. Sometimes the gap would be a bit larger, but sometimes it was a bit smaller, depending on what was happening. To accommodate this I generally eat at the lower end of the range.

Since I reached my goal over 2 years ago, I have practiced giving myself permission to eat whatever I want, one day in a week. Again the gaps vary. I lost a considerable amount of weight in the weight-loss mode, and I have been maintaining for over 2 years. See??? It CAN work, if you apply it wisely!!!

Even if you ate 2 slices, don't skip dinner. Eat a normal, healthy dinner. Starving yourself because you overate at lunch could lead to a binge.

You ate a teensy bit too much. It's not a big deal! You can still stay on track by eating healthily and mindfully for the rest of the day.

I'm at work now later than I thought I'd be, and I'm starving. Of course, there's pizza in the kitchen. I decided to eat two slices now, but that means that I've already hit my calorie range for the day. That would mean no dinner when I reach home.

I would really appreciate some words of advice or encouragement. I'm going to get home stressed out and burnt out from a hard week, which is not a good thing. I've been doing SO WELL, and I don't want this to be the beginning of the end.

Thank you all for reading this.
