OK - since my oreo episode I WAS doing great - no added sugar... then... my bf brought me home one of my favorites... a McDonald's frappe. I definitely drank it and I'm DEFINITELY freaking out inside! I already exercised today but now I feel like I need to do it all over again. I so do not want to fail at weight loss this time! emoticon

You're doing emoticon . A healthy lifestyle isn't about deprivation but moderation. emoticon emoticon

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Only 4 oreos? You are my hero! I'd have opened them up, spread on some peanut butter and downed half a dozen!

Don't feel guilty, track them and move on.

So I found this Yogurt pop suggestion in the Secrets for Success section: http://www.sparkpeople.com/secrets.asp?tip
=33198_yogurtpop

Looks like it must work - gotta give it a try, because I miss dessert as well. All she does is stick a popsicle stick thru the lid and put the whole thing in the freezer. How easy is that?

Just had another idea for a guilt-free treat you might consider... I think I might give this a try too...

What about making freeze pops out of something low cal (like yogurt) or no-cal (like diet soda or vitamin water?). Then you could enjoy something sweet when your family does, and not feel guilty in the least?

I'll do some experimenting to see what works and what flops.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will give you strength and help you. Isaiah 41:10

I really can't get rid of the sweets in my house. My bf and our 5 kids don't have weight issues. Although I find it hard to resist they are not sugar bingers and enjoy these snacks every now and then.

5BADDOGS' suggestion regarding painting your nails is a good one! Can't snack with wet nails! LOL - I'll have to try that one!

Thank all of you for all of your suggestions and support. I REALLY appreciate it!

I have the same weakness. Best option - don't have it in the house! If it's not readily available, you don't have to rely solely on willpower to resist. Gather up all your sugary sweets, and throw them away, and veer away from the aisle in the grocery store.

Some things I've tried as no-cal substitutes:
1. chew a piece of sugar free gum. They make some really deserty-type flavors these days, so maybe you can find one that mimics your favorite treat?

2. Herbal mint tea - the water volume fills you up, and there is no caffeine to keep you up.

3. do something active - take the dog for a walk, take out the trash, paint your nails... If I get up and start doing something, I forget about my craving.

I use chocolate protein bars, fiber one bars, etc. as alternatives to less nutritious sugar items also. I do better early in the day. Late afternoon and evening are my most difficult times to deal with food cravings.

I have a terrible time with sweets after dinner. That is my downfall. I stopped buying ice cream and cookies, but I still buy luna bars or those fiber plus bars. I try to convince myself they are better than ice cream.

I had cut out all added sugar. I don't like fruit so the only source of sweetness that I was getting was from vegis like carrots or peas. I was having terrible headaches and was just trying to push through it. Now, I'm afraid that I'm going to have to start from square one and I certainly hope that that's not the case. Thank you for your encouragement.

4 oreos isn't that bad as long as you don't do it every day. You need to treat yourself once in a while.

I had been doing SO good with the no sugar thing and then last night I ate 4 oreos! I feel so guilty and I feel SO yucky! I'm trying to psyche myself up by saying that today is a new day emoticon
