emoticon for your kind comment on my blog 'My after-work hike'. I must say it made me laugh out loud... Not talk to a horse? But what bad could it do to the poor horse? emoticon

The first time I tried this carb plan I felt like it totally glorified the carbs, and it made me want them so much more. I quit after a week because it was "too restricting". Yesterday though was a total stress binge that would have happened regardless, it was definitely an emotional thing. I would have eaten fast food no matter what... but I do think the craving for the pizza was partially because it wasn't a "carb day". I really overall am liking the plan and out of the 27 days I've been on it, I had one binge, if I hadn't been on the plan it would have been probably 4-7 really bad days, that is just my average LOL! So overall the plan is working very well for me and controlling my eating. :) I just need to not let the stress and emotions get the best of me. I also have toned down my "carb nites" a lot, so I don't eat very many. Just enough to give my body what it needs. :)

Thanks for commenting on my blog again. For some reason I consider those Weight Watcher ice cream bars "Off Limits" until my after dinner snack time. I do look forward to it everyday too. I was thinking about Katie at Runs For Cookies who always has a piece of dark chocolate and a glass of wine in the evening. I think we all need a reward. It gives us something to look forward to, and if we can eat it in moderation, maybe we're learning self-discipline? As you know, I have to keep all other non-fruit snacks OUT of my house, because evidently I'm not really all that good at self-discipline YET!!!
