  • I agree with you a treat is a good idea. emoticon - by TWINKIE14
  • I actually allow myself 1 day a month for a "treat"... not a day that I just go hog-wild, but a day that I actually plan on having something that I typically try to steer clear of. Maybe I have a birthday party that month, so I allow myself a "normal" sized piece of cake (not something huge)... or my personal favorite: a lunch date w/ one of my friends to the local Chinese buffet (again, I don't overdo it though). This gives me something to look forward to so I don't feel totally deprived! - by NASCAR_CHICK
