This is how we get off track and stay off track.

It happened and it's over, just do the right thing after and it will straighten itself out

LOL, learn from it!
Sounds like mindless eating. Next time serve yourself a serving in a bowl so you can't mindlessly eat through the bag.

Remember, food is supposed to be enjoyable. We just have to be in control of the portion size.

You ate those chips because you Wanted them, but you are "supposed" to feel guilt and shame. Ok, now move on, don't ever think you will always eat perfectly for the rest of your life, because you won't, and neither will the rest of us. One day at a time. We do the best we can, and if we don't, we try again the next meal...................lifetime. Look how many celebs with trainers and "people around them 24 hrs." still gain weight back. Food is our comfort, neither love or money will ever change that. I'm 66 yrs. old, trust me on that.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

One of my red light foods is cheese crackers. I try very hard not to have them in the house. Occasionally I buy them and incorporate them into my daily menu and yes I sometimes go over board. I record it and move on. Non of us are perfect if we were we wouldn't have weight problems. So let it go and move on and learn from the experience. Keep a positive attitude. emoticon

Hey sweet potato chips sound nice! Not come across them in UK, though we have lovely ones made with carrots, parsnips and beetroot. If only they weren't cooked in fat they'd be so healthy!

If you went 230 cals over your allowance, chances are you still burnt more calories than you used so you might have even lost weight yesterday.

You should see the lunch I've just had!!! I went out with some friends and had the biggest meal I've had for ages. Apart from the butter on the potato and the roll it was all healthy food - but over 900 cals in one meal! But it's a few months since I had a meal like that, and it will be a while before I do it again so I don't feel one bit guilty. I'm likely to be maybe 300 - 400 cals over by bedtime, but still way below 2000 cals in total so I still consider that I'm losing weight today - or not putting any on anyway.

I think sometimes the question has to be 'Is it worth the extra calories?' Today my meal was worth it. My guess is that, in retrospect, you'd say you enjoyed the chips but wish you'd tipped some into a bowl to eat and wrapped up the rest for another day. Lesson learnt. Enjoy and move on.

Track it and move on! Guilt serves no purpose whatsoever (IMO) and isn't appropriate to apply to overeating (again, IMO). emoticon

The main thing is that you tracked it. Good for you.

Moving in new directions.

It happens to the best of us!! Let it go - today is a new day - start over and think about how good you will feel by eating right/exercising. Learn from this & all you can do is try to not let it happen too often or if ever. Good luck!!! emoticon

Don't sweat the small stuff!!!

so what did you learn from the experience? ?

that is what I am trying to do lately. if I "mess up" like that I am trying to figure out ways to avoid it happening again. instead of beating myself up over it

Put it behind you and pick back up!

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!!

Any effort is better than no effort!

Please don't beat yourself up over this. We all have those moments when we do something we know we shouldn't and regret it later. Not always eating either - could be spending money or saying the wrong thing. Like others have said you tracked your chips and were honest about what you ate. It's time for a new day and new choices. You can do this even with occasional backslides. Today will be a great day.

My theory is that as long as you are honest and track it, you are ok. I mean, not every day, but if it happens it happens. It's when you start saying "I think I'll just not document that delicious bag of chips" that you get in trouble.

I have been trying to eat mindfully because, even when I plan my day and pack all my food so it's ready, I can get into trouble by eating without thinking about it.

OK. Last night , I don't know what I was thinking. Actually, I must not have been thinking at all. I sat down with a new bag of Sweet Potato Chips, because if you're going to have chips, you should find ones with 40% less fat, right? Before I knew it, I was at the bottom of the bag. I waited until this morning to "track my food" and add it to my tracker. The good news is that it only pushed me over my calorie count for the day by 230 calories. The bad news is the guilt. I'm only hurting and dissappointing myself. It was not stress eating. Possibly depression, although I try to have a positive attitude. I have done this type of binge eating for so long over the years, that I'm angry with myself for slipping back to that BAD HABBIT! I resolve to think more, eat less, and forgive myself! emoticon
