I'm usually pretty good about sweets - not really "good" it's just that for the most part I don't desire them.
Yesterday I went to a baby shower and there was a cheesecake on the desert table. (I had already passed up to regular cake with no trouble)!! I had ONE piece of cheesecake. It was sweet, smooth, tasty, etc., etc.
This morning I logged my food from yesterday into my tracker and to my utter horror I found that that ONE piece of cheesecake was 870 calories.
I couldn't believe it - thought that maybe that was for the whole pie - I went back to the tracker and looked at different varieties, different brands, different flavors, etc. Turns out that I was correct the first time - 870 calories.
Wow - I've learned a lot about different foods since being on SP, but now I'll have to add another terrible lesson.....
Sigh - I love cheesecake!
