I alllow myself days when I can eat what might be considered "forbidden" foods like pizza, cheeseburgers, chocolate, etc. I realzied when I decided to lose weight, get in shape, and get fit that I couldn't totally give up those things. I have just made myself understand that at 41 I can't eat like that all the time and I can't stuff myself when I allow those foods.

Yesterday is an example. I went to Red Lobster (for lunch because smaller portions) and had shrimp scampi, popcorn shrimp, baked potato, salad, and even 2 biscuits. I shared with my son but had a great meal. To make up for it I had a liter supper. Still this morning I got up and weighed 171.6. When I started in mid April I was up to 186.4 so I am steadily losing 1.25 lbs per week yet still eating a lot of what I want.

I think it is all about balance in everything we do. I also did an 45 minute kickboxing video after lunch yesterday to kill a few of those calories! But I am definitley making small changes that don't feel overwhelming enough that I will lose it and binge.

I know how you feel. I went to the dentist Monday and had 6 1/2 hours of dental work done to one tooth. (sports injury!)

My husband asked me what I realy wanted to eat after we left . All I wanted was Ben and Jerrys chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I ate half the pint he bought me and kicked myself the next day, but you know what i got on the scale this morning for my weekly weigh in and I had still lost weight.

If you don't reward yourself everyonce in a while , you'll get burnt out and not do it at all Razz

Treating yourself once in a while is OK, it even feels pretty good if you don't allow the guilt to set in too hard. I tell everyone around me that I am NOT on a diet, I am simply making healthier choices as to what I eat and do. I allow myself to eat more of what I like on the weekends because they are the hardest days to stay on track, but I am still losing weight, and more importantly inches!! You're doing great, don't let guilt get you down Razz

Plan ahead...if you know you are going to eat out, cut back during the day before, the day of, and the day after. That way you don't loose all that you gained (no pun intended!).

And make good choices! I get dessert at Golden Corral, but I only take a bite.

Have your servings of veggies and fruit! Have soup!

And like the ladies have said, treat yourself once in awhile...it's ok!

Soon to be slender Sara!
