I have lost 50lb since April 2018 , but have had my worst day today eating over 3000 calories today the most I have eaten for over a year , I feel rubbish today sore throat and a headache . I had a busy Christmas and new year but managed to remain the same weight. Why am I trying to sabotage my progress . Some one help me understand !

Its only one day! Close that book and start a new one! I have been there. Please don't beat yourself up or you will be on the track to putting that weight back on. you can do it! just focus on eating healthy choices and you will soon start to feel better! Hang in there!

Like Micalaney said, it's just one day. What matters is the average trend. So long as your weekly/monthly average stays under that magic number, you'll be ok.

3000kcal is a lot in a single day though, no wonder you feel terrible! The truth is, this is actually good news: it's your body telling you that such a massive intake in a single day isn't something it's used to any more and making you feel bad is its way of saying "cut it out" Smile

No Biggie! One day means very, very little. When on vacation I indulge and eat about 1000 calories per day over my budget for two weeks! I last gained 6 pounds on vacation and most of it was water weight. It took me two weeks to get it back to where I started. Consistency is everything!
Look, I'm no spring chicken as I'm 41 years old but I have had a beach body, naturally, year round for 26 years. I burn fat like a furnace! Think fat loss, not weight loss. I created a site to share my passion. Perhaps it can help you

You ended your post by saying "help me understand" - you owed yourself a break, big-time. That's all. Good for you. I emphatically endorse "don't beat yourself up" over this, nor over-think it.
