(sorry I know I am a couple days late here!)

Nikki My heart really goes out to you right now. I have been exactly where you are so many times in the past that it just makes my head spin. Its funny how one cookie can turn into a dozen isn't it? In my case I know that I can NOT bake cookies (and when I do I half or even quarter the recipe..less to eat) because I KNOW I will eat them all. You are going to have to decide for yourself just how strong you are in the face of temptation..if you are anything like me baking is something left for a few pounds down the road :) For me the most important thing to do is to forgive myself for that little mistake. I was shocked one day when I had intended to eat 3 cookies..and I ate 5, got angry so I ate three more. Did you know I was punishing myself? DONT do that! Think of it this way, if you had not been watching your food intake and exercising..you just might have eaten those extra cookies anyway.

We are in this for the long-haul girly and there is no way that you are going to let this one little slip up ruin a very bright future.

It is not what you eat between Christmas and new years eve that is the problem, but what you eat between new years eve and Christmas.

You need to treat yourself from time to time, or else when you do go to treat yourself once in a blue moon you're body is going to react and there is a chance of you binging..

I've done this before where I've eaten something I shouldn't have.. or too much of something I was supposed to limit myself to.. I end up feeling guilty half way through.. put down whatever it is I'm eating.. sit and think for a few minutes, and decide that I need to work extra hard next time I'm at the gym for my slip-up, or even take half of my next reward away..

Hey there. I have totally been here so you are not alone.

I think it is important to be aware of what and how you were feeling when you ate the cookies. Did you have to make them in the first place? Were you bored, sad?

It's going to be hard to make new habits but it seems like you are doing a good job. Just do one thing at a time. If you really feel like a cookie, just go for one, and really really enjoy it. The accomplishment of having one of something (instead of 15 in my case) is incredibly rewarding.

You can do it!

everyone slips up from time to time, so don't beat yourself up for it or punish yourself! The important thing to remember is that you can make your next food choice or activity choice a better one!
Don't throw away all of the progress you've made because of one silly thing. You didn't get to whereever you are over night and you won't get to whereever you want to be over night either!

Hang in there and lean on all of us for support! we're all in this together!

I just started Sparkpeople last week and I've been doing alright at it so far. I'm eating better overall, tracking my food, and have even done a little bit of exercise. But today, for whatever reason (I'm not even really sure why) I made a batch of cookies and ate 8 (yep that's eight) of them. Now I'm so mad at myself. I'll never be able to lose weight if I don't quit doing this to myself. So my question is this, How do I keep going from here? I feel like such a failure.
