Today I was above my 1500 calorie limit by about 300 calories. I didn't even eat a whole bunch of bad stuff...I don't know if 300 calories is major. I find it funny that I can go under my calories by 400 and it's fine, but I go over by 300 and the first thing I think about is going into the bathroom to purge. Of course I didn't. But I thought about it. Old habits die hard, I guess. I haven't done that in years and years. I didn't even "think" I just popped into my head. Anyway...I put down all my calories anyway...I lost it...cried...husband tried his best to console me. I will talk about it more tomorrow, perhaps. I ended up calling my SIL and we talked for a couple of hours. She's the one I've started the support group with. I am just emotionally spent right now and just need tv and bed. Goodnight.

    Oh, my friend. If you think about a weeks worth of calories, do 300 more on 1 day make that much difference? NO, they don't. Moderation, NOT perfection is the goal here. I also know about purging but am far enough to know that 1 day will not make or break me. SLow down and ask yourself if in the past 7 days you have had 300 calories less in those 7 days altogether. If the answer is yes. you are PERFECTLY balanced. Hold on to your new habits and really push away those thoughts. I know it is easier said than done. But you are aiming for healthy and those thoughts are definitely not. Move forward, my friend and you are doing great.
