Thanks! I pretty much do that already, so I guess I'm not as far off as I first thought!

Yes, I treat myself but normally not with anything that would be commonly thought of as "junk food". It would be something homemade with sugar in it like a cookie or muffin. Or it might be a second helping even though I don't really need it...just because I feel like it...on weekends. Occasionally, but not very often anymore, if I find myself downtown with DH we might stop into a pastry shop or local roaster and have coffee and a goody. That is really fun; haven't done that for a very long time--soon again I hope. I couldn't stand myself (and nobody else would be able to stand me either!) if I was religiously on track all the time; life is too short!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I do treat myself, but only for a meal at a time, and I try to do so in moderation. The other day, hubby had a bunch of people over to throw a graduation party for a severely handicapped kid he used to teach, and there were hot dogs and chili and cheese and Cheetos and pop and all kinds of garbage. I had my dinner, fish with some lime and cole slaw greens mixed with some Greek yogurt, but let myself have one Rice Krispies treat and a small slice of pie with ice cream. Then then next day, back on track as always. I think allowing yourself to do things like that helps make it a lifestyle and not a diet, and that's the key to success. Just IMHO.

So... my journey is taking me to truly evaluating my eating once again. I have made HUGE changes over the last few years, but this one that I'm considering is going to be BIG too!!

I'm really looking at going to only eating clean. BUT... how do you do it all the time? Do you ever get a "free" day or treat yourself? How does that work? I'm just not sure that I could actually eat ONLY clean!? But part of me would like to!

Help!!
