Thanks for all the comments on my cheat day!

To my surprise the scales were not up at all this morning. I'm not sure why, maybe because the cheesecake I ate (incl. about 15 grams of carbs from Xylitol) was something my body needed (well, at least the fat and protein in it)?
Maybe it's just confirmation that scales are a really a pretty inaccurate gauge and I just need a little more sodium.
Fact is I will never know and will therefore not try to overanalzye this. I do feel great this morning and agree with the comments that said that allowing no indulgences at all can set us up for trouble and obsessive eating patterns and sometimes even eating disorders.
We just have to distinguish what we cheat on. My cheat was overall fairly minor, not so much the portion size (2 slices of cheesecake), but the fact that it had no high-carb foods in it. Interestingly enough I have no appetite for the same cheesecake that my daughter is having for breakfast right next to me, ha,ha. But some veggies with bacon and eggs for lunch today
Breakfast will be another nice cup of decaf with lots of raw-milk cream. All is good!
I did have some thoughts about eating, weight gain and the Biggest Loser. But that will go in another blog right now.
