  I can totally relate - I had several days of 'crap' eating and am now hoping to get things back on track for the rest of the month. Nice job on doing better - you can do it!

    You're doing just fine Candy. So you eat a little crap every now and again. As long as you're not consistently bingeing, I think it's okay. Indulging a little every now and then should also help to ward off the bingeing. Cut yourself a little slack...

    Yeah, don't apologise for ice cream and chocolate. Sometimes you gotta have some sweetness! :)

    There's a lot of good there too! You may have some crap; but you still did well. I have a hard time staying in range period, let a lone with crap. You're moving in the direction you want to go so just keep on trucking! Nobody said we had to be perfect all the time...

    I hate to disagree, but I think it is great that you allowed yourself some crap and managed to stay in range! I think that is terrific! Focus on the positive and staying in range is hard enough sometimes. Sure there, may be some "crap" by some definitions, but there's a whole lot of nutrient rich foods here too. We don't have to do everything perfect all the time to make this work.

Of course you can tell me I'm a dope because...confession...I ate 700 cals of chocolate yesterday (and could have had more) and I went over my range by 500 cals. But overall my nutrients were good. Sigh emoticon

We bought our last two spaghetti squash of the season I'm afraid or I need to look harder to find ithem :(

Have a better day today!

PS - I need to find those hemp hearts...putting it on the list so I can make that happen.

    One step at a time, Candy. Keeping the calorie count in line is important; getting the quality of the calories better is another piece of the puzzle. You're on the right track overall, keep going!
