Get back to your healthy eating plan as soon as possible. Don't make it an option not to.

I'd also get on that scale and *own it* so to speak, yes there's most likely some water weight happening, but after a few off days, there's probably some not water weight too. You should be able to see what a few off days does to you and your body.

I would also try and figure out how you could avoid in the future a couple of bad DAYS. Did you not plan well? Did you allow yourself to get to hungry? Did you not have the *right* foods on hand? Did you allow stress/boredom/anger to send you to the food, etc...
This I have struggled with personally and I do agree with Robin. No need to go around hungry for a day because you splurged the day before.

Try not to be too hard on yourself. Face it, forgive it and move on
