okay that is waht I was thinking. just doing my favorite gyro with cheesecake 2x a month would be plenty. thanx so much for the help.

and you're right. afterwards, especially if I RELISHED every bite, not so hungry later

I do it and it does work for me. I do it once or twice per month. Once per week is too often -- it really isn't necessary and it's just extra calories that you don't need. 1-2 per month is plenty, especially since for 4-5 days afterwards I don't really want to eat much anyway.

thanx for sharing. well I'm not sure if I could wait THAT long for an indulgance because I'm afraid that if I do too few indulgences, my chances of binging.

I set short term goals . . . a certain amount of weight lost, . . by a certain date . . then I have a treat. At Christmas my sweetheart is going to make me a gluten free apple pie. There will be lots of family so portion control won't even be an issue.

Other than that, I do work certain 'treat snacks' into my daily routine. I found a Chapman's ice cream that is only 120 calories for 1/2 cup - or a Chapman's frozen yogurt with the same calorie count. A lite Hot Chocolate or sugar free toffee.

My problem comes if I try to have too many of those treats in one day, or every day. If that happens too much, the scale goes the wrong way . . go figure
