I had NO IDEA how many calories were in just 1.5 cups of scrambled eggs. I mean, for real!!!! I don't even like them that much. They were not worth the calories, and now I know. (If you're wondering -- 548 calories and they didn't even have cheese.)
My boss, who is the healthiest person I know, advised me not to be discouraged that I blew through so many calories on such an unsatisfactory amount of food. If I tried to starve myself the rest of the day to keep it under 1,500 calories, I might become so hungry that I end up binging.
Instead, I'll eat sensibly the rest of the day and stick to my plan. I will not let this send me into a binge. I will not give up. I will lose weight this week.
