Do you give into cravings?

UGG! It's 8:30 pm and I'm making coffee!! I'm craving it and my decaf is crap so I had to make it with my caffinated coffee.

I just can't resist cravings. I'm this way with all foods and drinks. It's horrible!

Anyone else?

Oh, if you saw me you wouldn't even have to ASK! I can resist some things, and not others. Don't feel bad, I'm on the same time zone and thinking I want a cup of coffee too! I used all my decaf beans to make the girls iced frappuccino pitcher the other night!

Unhappy

with cravings i have no will power what so ever. mostly i go ahead and eat or drink it, and usually find i only want a little.

if i deny myself and eat healthy food instead, will end up eating what i crave anyway.

told u no will power.

I solved my problems with cravings very easily. I just changed the word "craving" to "necessity." No one would ever say I shouldn't have necessities. Seriously, I do give in to my cravings way more than I should. Will-power is not something I do well!

OK - I now crave coffee (thanks guys) but I also want some vanilla ice cream. So................I have a bit of leftover coffee that I'll pour on my vanilla ice cream and stir everything up together and have my very own coffee ice cream.

Seriously - THANKS a lot!

OR - should I use some of this delightful sherry (very oxidized and raisiny) that I have and pour over vanilla ice cream?
