I baked some brownies for my friends and family for valentine’s day tomorrow and I accidentally ate a piece of it even thought i’d already met my calorie allowance for the day. I know this doesn’t ruin anything (i’m trying to loose weight) as i probably went over by 500max (i ate extra fruits and nuts too) and yesterday i ate basically nothing (i was feeling sick, wasn’t on purpose), in the past if i baked brownies id eat the whole lot so i know a random slice won’t do anything but i still feel so guilty

It's really important, in my view, for people, especially girls and women, to move away from concepts of guilt when eating.

There is no place for guilt when it comes to food.

Don't give any further thought to having eaten part of a brownie.

One piece of good counsel I would offer you would be to keep an eye on any leanings towards disordered eating.

It worries me that you didn't eat anything yesterday and were feeling sick. You should always have something, even if it is a simple thing like scrambled egg on toast.

If you feel that specialised help is what you need, check out the organisation called Beat.

In the meantime, I wouldn't recommend the calorie counting route. Learn what the components of a healthy diet are and make sure that what you eat each day is based on this. Your goal should be good health.

It's okay.
The occassional small unhealthy snack is fine.
You have made plenty of progress and there's no reason for you to feel guilty.
You are managing your time very well during the pandemic; baking edible gifts for other people, changing your lifestyle to lose weight, monitoring your diet and calorie intake.
Good luck!
