It ALWAYS takes longer than I think to return to dieting whenever I fall off the wagon. There is just SO much sugar present that I cannot control (continuous temptation). Not that I regret celebrating my mom's 80th birthday with cake and ice cream, but no, I did not need to celebrate for the next 5 days!
And just because I thought they would taste good (Thanksgiving desserts were HORRIBLE! Shame on the persons who made them!)(Or should I bless them?) doesn't mean I have to eat what I put on my plate. You'd think I would've learned that lesson by now....
And by the time I finish crawling back on the wagon, it will be Christmas.
I can expect huge amounts of temptation then! Everybody is coming to MY house this time, and this time DH is in control. He's never been supportive and I don't expect any now. So I really need to start NOW making me some LC things that I consider treats and stashing them away. Maybe I can divert my attention from the "real thing" if I've got alternatives.
Marguerite's Vanilla Heaven Ice Cream -- good, and large servings are okay
LC caramel topping -- because I am gonna NEED it for ice cream and "apples"
LC Baked "Apples" -- when the apple pie comes out, I'll have it then
Golden Butter Cake (with Strawberries & Cream) -- the best LC cake will do!
I've got the LC Turtles candy...
oh... and I'd better make some LC Cocoa Mix too.
...and SF chewing gum...
Sounds excessive, but "better safe than sorry".
First order of the week: make some room in the freezer!
