Sometime over the last few years I have gotten into the habit of having a 'little treat' every day - but one usually becomes two, etc.
When I first started with SP, I was really conscientious and the weight came right off. Because of this I thought I would reward myself with a 'little treat' here and there. Before you know it, I gained three pounds back - and I think it's because I was back to eating my 'little treats' every night.
After analyzing my 'little treat' syndrome, I came to the shocking realization that a treat is really just that - a treat! Not an everyday food staple!
I have decided that, maybe once a week I can have a treat...but I definitely don't need one every night...if I want something sweet, I'll make a fruit smoothie or nuke a sliced apple and sprinkle a little cinnamon on it...
As for my rewards, I've made my list - and none of it is food-related. My new treats are going to be manicures, pedicures...and when I hit my goal weight, I'm going to a high-end salon to have my hair 'made-over' - now that is a treat!
