Caroline, I hope you can watch the Session 6 webinar replay, as I speak about your post here right at the start.

In addition to what I said on the webinar, it looks like you had taken on an all-or-nothing strategy as you thought that day would be “a good one to start putting it all into practice” and you ate something because you knew you weren’t going to “be compliant” for the entire day. I recommend taking one overeating behaviour/pattern, and just using the technique with that, especially at first. An all-or-none approach will never work long term.

Also – and this is for everyone – I’m not sure it helps to go into the details of what you ate. Much better to look for your understanding and awareness (or lack of!) the three themes of motivation, choice and desire – you will get so much more out of that.
