Im not liking myself so much right now. I ate wayyy too much and had one too many deserts. Of course I didn’t track. So my goal is to get right back on track, counting everything this next week. And I’m going to stay off the scale for a couple days. 😬

OK, folks: For those of you who did eat an big meal, for an over-maintenance total (logged or not) that day, how's the afternmath so far?
* Did you jump back on your healthy routine right away, or stumble a bit?
* Are you back on track now?
* How did the scale treat you (recognizing that it's early days, still)?
Context is that I'm in maintenance after decades of obesity, but eating a bit below TDEE most days to indulge sometimes, and perhaps continue to lose slowly (like half a pound a week or less). Age 64, if that matters, and 5'5"' ; sedentary but regular exerciser.
Thanksgiving was at least 2x TDEE (I didn't count, but I'm pretty good at estimating at this point), probably around 5,000 calories or more.
Friday I was on target despite an indulge-y restaurant breakfast. Saturday I was probably a little over maintenance (maybe a couple of hundred calories, not major, but much higher carbs than usual). Sunday on target. Ate back exercise calories throughout, as usual.
I weighed 134.4 pounds on Thursday morning before the festivities, skipped Friday because not at home, 136.0 Saturday, 135.4 Sunday, 134.2 today. I slept late this AM, so that may be a bit dehydrated, but overall I think NBD as predicted.
Anyone else care to share their aftermath experience?
