don’t feel bad! Sometimes in order to stay on track, you need a little splurge every once in a while!

sendings Hugs Ms H… we all go thru the sugar urges.  if youre finding its becoming a too regular thing then maybe carrying some fruit (orange or mandarin is good) or get some dried fruit (mango or pineapple) in a small snaplock bag just to get a sugar rush without all the chemicals

either way -every now and then is ok so dont beat yourself up too much

Well…..your dress is made to fit you, not the other way around.  I haven’t dieted at all, it’s the least of my concerns.  Your hubbie is marrying you the way you are, so don’t beat yourself up about it.

as long as you still have fittings to go to, they can make the dress fit you! and your groom (and all your guests) know and love you for who you are  – it won’t matter to them as much as it matters to you.

It sounds to me like your depriving yourself.  I am a former chunky monkey and I found that every time I tried to give up all junk food, namely sweets, I failed miserably.  Once I started to let myself have a little something everyday, I lost the weight.  Maybe you’re going overboard on your diet?  Some low fat ice cream or other relatively healthy sweet at the end of each day may keep you from going off the deep end.  I can usually hold out if I know that I get a mini-splurge at the end of the day.

Ugh, I just ate a really large cookie. Two weeks until my fitting and I want to be looking my best!

The best way to handle the sugar urge is to take a bite or two, and move on.

The first few bites are the best, when the sugary goodness tastes the most heavenly. After about bite 3 you start feeling guilty and icky for overindulging. I like to think that feeling is my body telling me that it’s had enough.

So take a bite and enjoy it, throw the rest away, and do it fast enough that you don’t think twice about it. The relatively large expense (say, 4 bucks for a huge cookie when you throw away most of it) might tempt you to pass it up next time.

Don’t feel too bad about it – when you are dieting, you can’t deny yourself some splurges…even in the Weight Watcher’s program they allow you extra points to “splurge” over the course of the week or on one day. You’ll be ok!!!

I never resist anything, haha. I know my willpower better than that.

So having a bite and stepping away is the only way for me! I love tasting food, I don’t like depriving myself from all of the depth of flavors out there!

Fill up on salad and healthy lean protein and have a bite of desert, have a smoothie or a bowl of oatmeal or whole grain toast and a bite of bacon. That’s the way I’ve done it for 10 or so years now, and I’ve gone from 195 to 125 lbs. Gotta have balance 🙂

 

Sorry, I don’t mean to preach. I just have a problem with diets, because they always seem to make people unhappy and left feeling like they’re missing out. You gotta live.
