I get happy just thinking about warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream. I just tell myself LATER. I can choose to eat fattening foods, but I have to plan them and track them and not eat impulsively and mindlessly. Knowing I CAN have that warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream later keeps me from feeling deprived. 224
My goal is to create a healthy lifestyle for years to come. Life can't be all salads and cottage cheese. I rarely choose to eat high-calorie foods while I'm trying to lose weight, but knowing I could if I wanted to keeps me from an unbalanced all-or-nothing state of mind.
