My sweet tooth is what kills me when it comes to weight loss. I can stay within calories. I can exercise on a regular basis. But I cannot stay away from the sweets. I find myself "cheating" by indulging on lots of sweets and then not eating real meals. So my calorie count still looks great, but let's face it--the nutritional value is TERRIBLE! So as of Friday, I've decided to limit myself to one sweet a day (you didn't think I was going to eliminate them all did you?! I can't walk away completely from a 25 year long love!! Plus in all seriousness even if I eliminated the sweets from the home I would then crave sweets even more [trust me I did try it for a short time] and would eventually binge). So far so good. This seems totally manageable. I still get to indulge and give my sweet tooth what it needs (I sound like an addict! I suppose I am in some ways) but limit it to a reasonable amount and save more room for freggies!
I'll keep you posted how it goes!
