Of course we all become frustrated sometimes and it is our birthday,anniversary,pity me day why do I have to always count these friggin points to fit into my jeans days---but in the end as stated in the previous post it can lead to more and more of these days and beware it will come back to you in your butt,tummy, etc. SO count count count, plan plan plan, and in the end you look and feel great without guilt. Afterall, I could never have a truly free day I am burdened with guilt till the week ends. It is my birthday monday and tom is the big dinner out. I will try to pick items that I know will not wreck my week and I am exercising in the morning to make up for some extra calories I will consume. Not starving for the rest of the week because of one day sounds good to me. Hope this is honest and helpful.
