I had a peek at your SparkPage to see when you joined, and then had a peek at your Nutrition Tracker. This is because a lot of people start this journey, boots'n'all and at lightening speed. I am wondering if this description fits you! You are a recent member, but your Nutrition Tracker - if you enter everything - shows that you are often eating well under 1200 calories, and often under 1,000, BUT you frequently do 2 hours of intensive exercise. Be aware that 1200 calories is the recommended MINIMUM for an AVERAGE weight woman who is sedentary. When a person is bigger, and when they are doing exercise, they need to eat more.
This journey should be started with baby steps. Just changing one or two things until your mind/body has gotten used to the changes, and then adding something else to the mix. This applies to exercise and nutrition.
Don't worry about having eaten the take-away. That is done and dusted. This journey isn't about deprivation, starvation, or skipping meals. It is not about under-eating, and it is not about excessive exercising. It is merely one of balance - a HEALTHY balance. No food is forbidden, but rather choose wisely MOST of the time. Use good portion control and with the perceived 'bad' foods, just have them infrequently.
Deprivation will often lead a person to a huge blow-out and often falling off the wagon. Don't let that happen to you!
