Frabbit,
I think we just need to take willpower out of the equation. Nobody has enough willpower when it comes to substances that are as addictive as sugar. Setting ourselves up for success means to limit exposure so we don't need much will power.

When I make the mistake to buy cake (unless it's very low-carb and homemade) I don't put it it in the freezer but in the trash. Just not worth the aggravation as it can screw up my blood sugar for a while week. I deserve better than that. emoticon

I do well until the dreaded temptations surround me.
Like any addiction, The bad foods kick my butt.
The cravings will eventually go away.
Give time time and get moving.

I am usually good with temptation until I get into HALT: If I am too Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired, my resolve evaporates!

Refuse to be beaten by inanimate objects, inflexible minds, and incompetent practices.

Can't even be around temptations.
They automatically wind up in my mouth.

I stepped off the wagon voluntarily for a special occasion yesterday. It wasn't really worth it and it was a pain in the neck to track. If the cake had been at our house it probably would have been thrown away rather than saved. No one except maybe my husband would have wanted more. Again I say, "not worth it".

It's funny because I used to love to bake...my husband would eat one piece of something and be done with it. I of course had to finish off the rest because didn't want to throw it away and it was calling my name. I recently baked a nice dessert, which impressed the grandchildren, they thought I didn't know how, no I just had to choose not to

one day at a time

I have learned that if I allow myself a small something sweet as dessert with my lunch. I don't want anything all day. I had a piece of key lime pie with my birthday lunch on Saturday. I didn't want any cake. I took a sliver. The cake is like yours now, just sitting in the fridge. emoticon

Sure wish I had that problem. I just have to see and touch and the cravings start screaming.

What a good problem to have!!!!!!!. Looks like your control on sugar is working. I do find that after about a week of no sugar, my cravings go away. However, one bite of cookie and it's back.
I also find that I need to eliminate artificial sugar because, for me, it causes cravings for sugar. I think we each need to find a method that works for us - looks like you are on the right track. for you.... Keep up the good work........

P.S. Cake freezes well.

I have a question for the members of this forum....
Does anyone else have intense cravings for a particular item, but once it's purchased, that intensity subsides?
My son's birthday was this weekend and instead of buying a huge birthday cake, we purchased a small one (it's only three of us in the house.) However, after dinner, I had no cravings for it. Since my son was full as well, the cake is still sitting in our fridge, not even cut.
Anyone else have this issue or am I the only one??
