It's not what we do every now and then that shapes our lives, and our butts, it's what we do everyday that counts!

Yes. I know what the trigger is and I cannot avoid the trigger.
I have always been one to avoid sweets most my whole life. Never made much fuss over any sweets.
Now as I am a bit older, I guess I got a sweet tooth.

Thanks Bea. Yep, thankfully I do not do this every day. But it still does bother me for doing it.

I guess it has much to do with my way of keeping myself at a decent weight. I know what puts on the pounds. I know exactly what does it, yet I am still a slave to this desire at least once per week.
Hint: It always happens after boys night out.........

I think my success at the pool and the fact I have little appetite are the major factors in the change.

I am patting myself on the back
And here is another pat for you. You will find that the longer you keep your sugar intake down, the less you will miss it and the less you will be tempted to take a taste. Good work LP. Keep it up!

I am on the Paleo diet currently. I have already lost about 10 pounds. It is hard to do but I am getting there.

Good for you on your weight loss!! It's a great feeling. It does a ger a little easier as time goes on.

I had deep water aerobics today, just a short 45 mn class.

Maybe it would be healthier (mentally) to look at your week as a whole. What I mean is, whatever you are counting, does that one treat derail your eating plan completely or is it just a blip on the radar. Dieting and weight management is about 90% psychological. What seems like a disaster one day, is barely a blip when you take the week as a whole. I would just try to keep blips at a minimum, but allow them here and there. Deprivation is the #1 best way to fail at a diet plan.

RB, I am just using your post as an example. This statement says it all. Everyone has to do what works for their own body. People can suggest what works for them, but in the end, each person has to choose for themselves.

In the past, eating a balanced diet in moderation worked for me. Since I was diagnosed with diabetes a couple years ago, that no longer works. I had some high readings lately so I cut way back on carbs. I was shocked to get on the scale this morning and see that I was down 6 lbs. Will I ever eat sweets or carbs again? Yes. Will I beat myself up over it? No. I will just do my best to do what my body needs. My body. Not someone else's.
