The trick is to see how much is a serving of sweets and divide it by 4. Only eat one fourth if it a day...you make it last longer and you don't deprive yourself of something you like. Deprivation is what makes you go overboard.

Thanks PF, I feel a bit dumb though. Before my Dr. told me to stop eating sugar I was fine with it. A chocolate usually lasts me forever, I could eat the odd square and not be bothered with wanting more. Guess I'm just being a rebel, don't like being told what to do It just makes me want it more!

Cut your nose to spyte your face I guess . I must bake scones for my daughter's school this week too, don't even like them but I bet they'll be a temptation. Think I should just buy some and pass them off as mine
Think I'm gonna send myself to bed soon before I get into more trouble!

Thanks so much to you too LP, lovely of you guys for thinking of me and my Steve

We are heading of in about 20 minutes

It has been a very warm night and Steve has really bad hayfever, so he is not feeling the best, extremely dry throat and of course he cant drink any water, the poor thing

I am feeling like a zombie...only had about 5 hours sleep

It is only a day surgery...but depending on how it goes he may have to stay overnight...lets hope I can go and collect him later this afternoon

Both of YOU STOP it now!!! I know it's hard and if you love chocolate welll. I Don't like it all that much, but Breads Italian cibatta, French and sour dough I could eat a whole half loaf. Snip, DH needs to be told. He loves you and you owe him to be honest about this. Don't you think so PF?
How would you feel if he hid a medical problem from YOU? So think about it and give him the news and see what he says.

I think if I every blog or write a book about my chronic pain I am going to call it "my backache is a 2 but my paper cut is a 10!" I have such a high tolerance level and have learned all these ways to manage all sorts of pain but I got a little cut under my fingernail and I was almost crying like a baby! Weird!

Snip, I agree with Kades. You need to tell him. My DH worries more when I don't tell him what is wrong because he can tell there is something but is afraid to ask. I am sure he will feel bad that he has been bringing you treats once he knows.
