That's great EMMYERS76! Your body must be getting used to the healthy lifestyle. When I have a cheat day, you can bet that I'll be at least 2 pounds heavier the next day.....and I really don't eat exorbitant meals. I know that salty foods has a lot to do with it, but I won't catch back up to where I was for a week or two. Go figure!

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!
Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

I have changed my lifestyle. I don't have "Cheat Days" Sometimes I eat things that are not really healthy, but yummy. My wife and I enjoyed a Original Chicken Sandwich at Burger King yesterday because they are only $1.04 right now. Not something I would normally do, but it's sparked and accounted for and my day went on.
I can't do that often, and I still don't trust myself to measure accurately when I'm eating freestyle, as it were. But I know the occasional untracked day won't really hurt my overall plan anymore!

I had cheat day today. I didn't go crazy but I did go over budget. I will not feel guilty because I feel in control of my decisions.

And here is the post I was gonna post...LOL So, I had a cheat day today and did not pay attention to calories at all during the day, I just ate what I wanted to. And, somehow at the end of the day when I tabulated it all...I still didn't go over in calories at all. Hmm, maybe my tastes have just changed to like things that are better for me???? Probably not though...LOL
