Hit 5k on Super Bowl Sunday. Actually only tracked 4,700, but rounded up since I may have forgotten a wing or two.

3000 since I've been with Sparkpeople.I couldn't imagine how high I went on occasion before tracking here. emoticon

I had one day just over 3500 -- went on a binge of deep fried salty crunchy things with an ice cream sundae chaser. That was about 3x the 1200 calories I'm supposed to have.

Since I asked this I've been good for about one over 3,500 calorie day per week. Still losing though, so that's good.

My highest track day that I can remember was in the neighborhood of 3500 calories. But I used to easily put away 8,000 calories a day. Glad those days are over.

I sat down once and thought back to how I used to eat then added up the calories...I broke 11k. Its one thing to think about how high you might have gone now, since you began tracking, but think back to before and you will amaze yourself.

Since tracking began on 12/17/ highest daily caloric intake was 1480 (out of a daily range of 1000-1500). So far, I've never reached my upper limit. emoticon

It's amazing how the calories can creep up on you. For example, I went overboard this past Saturday during my buddy's engagement party, and ended up with over 4,500 calories. All the while I was under the impressing that I was making decent and sensible choices. Nope. All the picking and drinking added up big time.

I think it was 4500 but before I had the accountability of tracking I am certain it was a lot higher and more often.

Once every other month I go out for all you can eat ribs. That meal hits about 5000 calories. All other days I eat less that 2000.

Of 'off' days when we've gone out to a restaurant, I've tracked about 3000, which, when I was younger, was on the low end of maintenance (or often below that) but which is now about weight-gain territory for me. Now even on my high days I don't go above 2600.

I don't track, but I must go sky high at holiday dinners. As in 5000+ for the day.

Sounds about like my high, I think I counted like 4500. It was planned though. We have a company function every summer where we eat and drink (mostly drink) from noon until midnight. It's awesome, I will do the same thing next year :)
