I'm also an "everything in moderation" type of person. A few years ago when I made my big push to finally lose the "baby weight", I went cold turkey with no treats. And I was really good for about a month. So I dropped a bunch of pounds and really kick-started my weight-loss. But then I started finding new "treats". For example, I was only drinking water for that month. So a Coke Zero (which used to be a daily drink for me) is now a treat. Someone introduced me to those Bai drinks during that time, so they also became a treat. That is also when I started to like dark chocolate, so I would occasionally put 1 or 2 small miniatures in my lunch bag for a mid-afternoon treat at work. Another thing I started was sharing a dessert. For example, if my family goes out for ice cream, I don't usually get anything for myself. But my husband will share a few bites of his or if the kids don't finish theirs...depending on what it is, I might finish it for them. My exception is usually vacations...when I will go all out on things I enjoy. The problem has become getting back on track when we get home. It's not too bad if we go on vacation during the school year. But summer vacations usually wreck me...Topic Tuesday
What is your view on treats? Moderate or avoid? Do you have any plans to change your treats?
