So I had a bad day yesterday, emotionally, which turned into a bad day eating wise. But even in the midst of the binge, I tried to remind myself that one mistake doesn't lose the war.
My husband was so supportive too. As I am stuffing my face with cheeseburgers & Fries and am saying "This doesn't make me a total failure. This doesn't mean I have to give up forever." And he was like "Uh-huh, that's right, you'll be ok tomorrow"
This morning, I made myself go over my actions yesterday to try and figure out what I could have done different for different results. I also made myself (though I REALLY didn't want to) go and track the results of yesterday's binge. (3679 calories, 148 grams of fat!!!!!!!)
Imagine my surprise, when I took my Calories from Monday added them to Tuesday, subtracted my exercise (800 cals each day) and my BMR, and I actually got a deficit! (1050 + 3679 - 1600 - 3600 = -471) Not that I intend to do this again, it just reinforces my desire to keep going (as I don't feel like a total failure)
