Allow yourself a cheat now and again--but include it in your plan for the day. If you don't let yourself have "forbidden foods" occasionally, you will end up binging and doing far worse!

    We allow ourselves cheats, but only on the weekend. One small bag of chips, or a pop. Nothing more, and it isn't ate after that if there are leftovers!

    this is very true....you have to allow yourself treats once in a while but as you said, be sure to track them.
