I tend to panic when I overeat even slightly, then go on to overeat more because I've given up.
But I learned a new way to look at overeating from another SP poster: It takes 3500 extra calories to gain one pound. If I've overeaten by only a few hundred calories or so, it's not the end of the world. Just continue on track for the rest of the day. I'll be fine tomorrow, and I'll learn good behavior from the practice of getting back on track IMMEDIATELY. If I go on to "punish" myself by giving up and overeating more for the rest of the day--that's where I gain that extra pound.
Don't worry, THEASKSTRATMAN, you did fine, and more important, you learned better behavior for next time.
You must do the thing you think you cannot do. --Eleanor Roosevelt
