So I was sitting here getting ready to beat myself up for eating what I shouldn't. Ready to drown in guilt and self loathing over food again. Then I stopped, and simply held myself accountable by typing what I'd eaten into my food tracker... and I gained some major perspective.

My big sin ? Half of a small piece of cheesecake made with fresh fruit and fat free topping and ONE chocolate chip cookie with ice-water instead of milk. So did I consume late-night calories I didn't need ? Absolutely. But even in my moment of indulgence I practiced portion control and took the low-fat and low-calorie options where I could. It was second nature. I think I can be proud of that. I obviously can't have sugary snacks every night and still meet my goals, but what happened tonight, when brought into perspective, actually represents real and lasting progress...So YAY ME !!!

    Did you know that your body doesn't know WHEN you ate that??? As long as you stay within your calorie range and track EVERYTHING you eat, you should be ok. It sounds like you already have a handle on portion control and are holding yourself accountable that's all that matters. Even your choices weren't that bad so YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF YOURSELF!!! A cheat every once in a while keeps you from feeling deprived and tempted to pig out. emoticon
