Slip-ups happen. Don't stress over it or you will want to start stress eating. What's done is done and now its time to move on.

Don't beat yourself up; just don't ever give up.

In response to my eating binge someone mentioned to view it as calories for the week. View yours as calories for two weeks, youll see one day doesnt have a huge impact (but thinking about two weeks will keep you focused).

This is all still new to you, and eating healthy can't just be followed by reading the rules and doing it, period. It just doesn't work that way, you are not a machine that can be programmed to do this and that, perfect, day in and day out. This will happen to you from time to time, that's just the way it is. Tomorrow is a new day. Just take it one meal at a time if that helps. Look at your calories, perhaps you arn't eating enough in the first place, first time dieters seem to do that alot, semi eating. Keep going!

Don't beat yourself up for a moment off track. We all have them! Think of how far you have come and all you have done towards being healthier. You will get back on track again for sure!

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

Great advice from everyone. Remember, you are a normal human being. We have all been there and done that.
Forgive yourself and keep on!

I agree with everything others have said and want to add....make sure to drink lots of water! It's probably the best thing you can do for your body after you over do it.

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!

It happens. We've all done that. Remember, the next moment is a chance to start fresh. This is about a process, not 100% perfection.

The new you is a life style--not a day style. You did plan, you did try and you know what happened. I agree that tomorrow is a new day. This is a journey not a day trip. Be good to yourself and enjoy the leftovers in moderation.

I know I was overtired....I tend to overheat and binge when I am.

Tomorrow is a new day, enjoy today rather you went over calories or not. I allow more on holidays myself so that way I am happy no matter what.

So the last three days I have been faithful in tracking my food and felt so good about it. Today we are celebrating Easter here and I had planned everything out and was sure I was going to be successful. Well.....last night I didn't get any, and I mean any sleep whatsoever. After lunch when I had everything in the oven and ready for later, I decided to have a nap and when I woke up I lost all control and I started eating stuff that I had not planned to eat :( I'm so upset about it and feel awful....we haven't even had supper yet!! Help!!!
