ITA with the idea of the cheat day....for some it's the gateway day.

I would figure out how to allow foods you love to work within your calorie range. For some the idea of a "cheat" is counterproductive.

I know I can't do it. I'd rather just make a slice or two of pizza work - nothing is forbidden. It's just I can't have it all at once.

i usually have a cheat day on sunday. i try to do more exercises that day so i can have a few extra calories so i don't gain weight. it has worked pretty good for the last 2 years. also log in my food and exercise every day to stay on track. if i overdue on cheat day, ha! ha! i eat a little less and do more exercise on the next day. it works pretty well for me.

Sounds like "cheat day" may not work so well for you... can you cap your "cheats" at X number of calories? (I get my cup of premium ice cream! or I get my small bag of chips!)

Would be glad to correspond, but have a similar issue: doing well for a long time and then breaking down completely for a period. To be honest, my approach is to pick a weight at which I am not UNcomfortable, and at which my clothes fit -- and then eat to stay within a few pounds of that weight. If I go up a few pounds, I cut my intake for a few weeks... but I've found that trying to stick with an absolute calorie count "forever" just doesn't work for me.
