Default 700 Calories over my RDI?!

I've been doing sooo good, too-- one night and a few breadsticks later-- and I feel like it's all down the drain !

Don't beat yourself up about it! That'll just make things worse. So you ate some breadsticks. Big deal, they were good, and now you're back on plan, right?

Also, some hot lemon water might work. It keeps you from retaining water from high-sodium foods (including most breadsticks). Just keep up the good work, and don't let any little ups take the spotlight away from your overall weight loss

You want some numbers? Here's a number for you: 3500. That's how many calories you need to take in ABOVE what you burn in order to gain 1 pound. 700 is only 1/5 of that, so that one little night won't even cost you a whole 1/4 of a pound! Your scale might go up a bit from water rentention since restaurant food is ridiculously high in sodium, but you can't have gained even 1/4 of a pound of fat from that meal, so time to let it go and move full speed ahead

in a total admiration kind of way ! :-) Jilly- you made me feel so much better.

In a side note.. 3500? REALLY? How many times must I have done that to get where I am now?! GEEPERS. :-)

Yeah, those breadsticks certainly have a way of adding up the calories, don't they? But think of it this way: you had 1 fun night in which you ate too much, but at least it's only 1 night and not a habit! Every time I overeat and feel bad about it, I remind myself that I used to eat like that every meal. In that light, 1 meal doesn't seem like that big of a deal!
