When we eat out we often have dessert. At home we don't have it that often. James said they usually had dessert when he was growing up. When I was growing up we had a light dessert, like Jello and fruit, every week or so, and heavier desserts less often. We will be making a concerted effort to lose weight when we get home from vacation, and one thing we plan to do (based on a study I read about at WebMD) is eat yogurt three times a day, so I guess we will be eating dessert a lot then.
