I struggle with this; I have a tremendous sweet tooth! So, for now at least, I am trying to leave enough room in my calories for a treat many days. For instance, tonight I had one serving of Jell-o chocolate fudge pudding; I made it with 1% milk and divided it into the four servings when I made it. One other of my favorites is Trader Joes' 100 calorie dark chocolate bar. You have one and you are done....

So Far......

I've lost 26 pounds

6 inches off my hips

5 1/4 inches off my waist

1 1/2 inch off my neck

4 1/2 inches off my bust


 Pounds lost: 23.0

I am using a plan in which I commit to 5 days a week having three plates/bowls of food a day with no snacking and no predominantly sweet foods. I've known some slim people who limit desserts to weekends even though they had never been fat. I thought of the plans that allow for one day a week of free eating and it always sounded dangerous to me. Once I started, woudldn't I not be able to stop on Monday? It hasn't turned out that way. Personally, I think it is because there are no resrtictions on the foods I choose for my meals during the week, so it's only one kind of "deprivation" which so far has been easy, and even in some ways, comforting, to returrn to. I did find on my second weekend that on the second day, I pretty much just ate three meals plus a dessert and was satisfied. I don't mean I think that will happen forever now but I can see moving toward that. For Gould's program, it may sound dangerous to allow for free eating, which may includie bingeing, by his standards. I'm not recommending that anyone else choose this style of eating, but I just thought it couldn't be worse than the way I was already living, and I believe using its principles and continuing to learn to deal more and more directly with my emotions will do a lot to help me decrease my overeating, especially of sweets.
