Taming That Sweet Tooth! (Haha...good one...)

Monday, April 15, 2013

So I spent the weekend in Chicago, and totally learned something about myself while I was there.

I suck at trying to diet while on vacation.

Honestly, I failed that "taming the sweet tooth" challenge that I just started. I failed! No, I did NOT swap out that sweet for something healthier! Like the weakling homo sapiens I am, I gave in! I GAVE IN! I ATE that cookie! Oh, tragedy of tragedies...

But! That does not mean I shall give up. For because I've just started, there are still several more days ahead of me to succeed--far more days in front than the failed ones behind me, so I can still consider, in the end, this trial a success!

If only...I start now.

Any tools of the trade? Any tricks, gimmicks you guys use to be able to tell yourself "no"? If so, I'd love to hear them. Honestly. I could use all the wisdom several other dieters have regarding this...

    Moderation is key. I also find that getting a fiber one bar with chocolate in it helps a lot. Get a little sweet in with my fiber. emoticon

    My only advice is moderation. My husband usually gets dessert and I will have one bite. Yes, I know that is tough.

I'm also learning to bake healthy desserts or I have low-fat cookies and dark chocolate. I eat those in moderation. I don't deprive myself, so I don't feel compelled to splurge.

Hope that helps! It's all about progress, not perfection.

    I have a sweet tooth also, I usually drink water to calm it down. I have not tamed the BEAST, I have it under control most of the time.
