I had a moment of weakness and bought a candy bar at the grocery store. I wasn't planning on eating it immediately but it was sitting next to me in the car on the drive home and I just couldn't seem to stop myself. I ate it. However, as soon as I got home, I put it into my food tracker and based the rest of my food around it. I wish I hadn't eaten the candy bar but I am glad that I handled it well and didn't let it start a binge.

    I did think about only eating half and then giving the rest to my boyfriend. Once I got stuck in traffic I just finished the whole thing.

I found that sharing that information actually made me feel better. I put it out there on the internet, everyone knows, now I can try to do better.

    emoticon Owning up to your decision is an admirable thing. Working around it is even more admirable! I'm glad you didn't go on a binge. I know there are different opinions on "cheats", but maybe your body just really needed that candy right now so you don't feel deprived later. Occasionally is better than regularly.

Oh, and if you find yourself in that situation of having bought a junk food again on impulse, maybe you could think about gifting it to someone instead of keeping it to yourself? It feels good to give, maybe even as good as eating candy feels!
