I was posting a comment on the message boards about how I splurged yesterday because it was my anniversary. As I was typing it I realized something... I thought I was really treating myself to celebrate by cheating on my diet and eating a lot of unhealthy food. Really, I was just cheating myself, not treating myself! I was cheating myself out of achieving my goals, cheating myself out of being healthy, cheating myself out of success, and cheating myself out of feeling better about myself. Sure, you don't have to be perfect all the time but did I really have to eat bread, cheese and crackers, a taste of a crab cake, some kind of potato pizza with cheese appetizer, mashed potatoes, macaroni & cheese, and two cupcakes!!! Yeah, I treated myself alright... I treated myself to another 5 lbs. and bigger pant size! When you cheat you really do only cheat yourself!
