I'll bet a lot of it is just water weight. Were you eating salty food, too?

Yes, a lot of everything. I need to get out of this slump. Glad the holidays are done. Plan to leave the chocolate alone on Valentines day. All holidays seem to have challenges when candy & bakery is involved.

Thursday was 3 weeks without munching on sweets, this coming thursday will be a full month.

The only "sweet" stuff that I've consumed was a little vanilla creamer in my am coffee and a regular size spoon full of good honey in my plain greek yogurt, that takes the edge off the tartness of the greek yogurt, I like the tartness, but for me a bit of honey and some walnuts makes it perfect!

After thursday, I'll probably treat myself. My goal is to enjoy sweets but not mindlessly eat them, use them as a treat and a "sometimes food".

Congratulation of making it this far. Set up a schedule for treating yourself. Totaling denying yourself is punishment. You now know you can control the sweets. So once a week, during your work week, allow yourself to have a treat. Even if it is on your break at work. There you are busy and can't be munching and stuffing your face mindlessly. The benefit of all this effort is that after several months you are going to find sweets too sweet and your craving will become less and less. Just imagine when there is a plate piled high with warm fresh cinnamon rolls and you look at them with disgust. "No thank you" will be your mantra.

BC, I do all the baking for the whole family. Cookies, cakes, pies, etc. I never stick my finger to taste. The beater goes unlicked, there is not one to clean out the bowl. No little or big kids to fight over who gets a spoonful of frosting or batter. And when the product is ready for delivery, there is not missing slice of the chocolate cake or pie. All the cookies are going out the door. You can do it. I know.

Hang in there. You are doing great.
