Before you start to eat for your meals portion out exactly how much of each food you can eat and put the rest away. Don't tempt yourself to eat more. If you are finding yourself hungry afterwards you might want to look for some lower Calorie/Fat/etc. foods that can fill you. Also I find if you eat small portions of what you are craving instead of making it off limits it will help you stay on program more. Like you did when you have a meal that is higher in Calories for whatever reason try to plan ahead or at least for the rest of the day in eating lower Calorie foods. Keep up the good work and don't give up, it's a learning process and if you don't make mistakes you won't learn. Shelly

Thanks everyone, I agree, but it seems I need to get better at this balance and moderation thing, ever since I've committed I've gone crazy over all my fav junk food. What's up with that?

The other day, I thought that I had overeaten and I was still hungry. When I got home and put everything in my tracker, I saw that I was actually low in my calories, so I ate a snack. It is a process and the human body is amazing on how well it can adjust to changes in habit.
You are on the right path. Just remember to listen to your body and what true hunger means.

So I committed to doing this and today I binged at lunch and also at work. Instead of just chalking it up to having no control and since I promised to track everyday I tracked what I ate. The good news is I have 200 - 300 calories left for dinner and can still stay on track. I ate healthy stuff mind you but still overate and binged!
