I posted a while ago that a person I'm friendly with was Dr. Atkins assistant. And she told me he had a terrible sweet tooth! So, yeah he wasn't perfect either!
I do find that beyond the weight gain if I eat off plan (I think that's the best way to think about it) is that it isn't worth it because I'm more hungry. So I try to remind myself what will happen. Mine aren't pop tarts but just higher carb veggies, fruits, nuts because I'm a super sensitive type.
I was pretty proud of myself the other day. I sat in a meeting in front of sugar and choc chip cookies, literally in front of where I was sitting, smelling them and did not eat them! Part of what helped is that they were not made with pure ingredients and I just tell myself it's poison. I love the analogy of sugar just being a slow way to commit suicide. My father is evidence of that. I use him as an example to my kids why we don't eat sugar very often. That and my smoking mother in-law. So far my 16 son has been repulsed my cigarettes and doesn't drink soda, etc. Hopefully the other 3 will be as well.
Good to admit what you've done and own it. Helps you move on instead of getting in a bad cycle I say!
I am starting my ticker again since starting low carb....in the home strech!
You have no control over what you weigh...only what you do.
Progress NOT Perfection!
