My girls like ice cream at night, but I have a hard time limiting how much I eat. It's definitely one of my 'trigger foods'! BUT- I found the White Mint Truffle bars from Skinny Cow and they're delicious!!! And only 100 calories! They're so rich that I'm not tempted to eat more than one!

Make your own sugar free, fat free latte...look in the yellow pages for grocery supply places, they stock the bottles of latte flavorings and have a sugar free selection. Make a latte with 1% milk, coffee and flavoring for pennies! 469
For an extra decadent treat use 2% or whole milk - just a small dollop. It sure beats paying $3.50 for a grande!
When you decide to get back on track first realize that this is not a diet but a way of life. Treat your home and your body as a shrine. No junk in the house no junk in your system. Outside of your home you can reward yourself for treating your body and house with love and treat yourself to a decadent sweet or drink. Good habits start at home. You are the keeper, provider and teacher to others.43
If you have junk food in the house collect it in a box, give it to a shelter, or better yet throw it away/,
Every once in a while, you feel like having a treat. Afterward the feeling of guilt builds and that can make you fail. What I do is "buy" my treat thus taking away the guilt. I chose to do situps. The exercise you chose is your decision. I chose situps because it was a "punishment" that was doled out by my Senai in my martial arts class. At one time, I had worked up to doing 600 situps a day. It worked and I didn't have any guilt.
