I love icecream - or maybe I should say that I used to love icecream. I had the blessing of not being able to eat it for a whild because my teeth ached too much and it was not worth it.

But now I have eaten icecream saturday and sunday - it was not as good as I had anticipated. The saturday cone was an impulse and I wonder why I did not throw it away after two bites since I did not really like it that much. Yesterday was a question of having it in the house, I bought a package for daughter and friend but when I came home, they had left to play at the friends house and then it was time to drive my daughter to the bus that takes her back to her father... so the icecream was in the freezer and that I could not handle at all.

I wonder if it is sort of a self-fulfilling prophecy? "I can´t keep triggers in the house"... which means that if trigger foods randomly end up in my house I don´t have to resist them...

I am sort of sure that it is also a delayd reaction from my crises last week - I did not binge after session in court and I did not binge after being fined for driving without a seat belt... and when I relax and think "wow, I did not binge!" I fall for something small....

Back ont track today, I have a hard time to get working, but I beter because otherwise I will have a very difficult situation next week!

    Best not have things in the house that you can't control your eating with. I love ice cream and if it is in the freezer I will eat it often. A treat now and then I think is ok . Now I only have ice cream when I am eating out. Any thing I want to reduce in my diet I stop keeping it in the home . I think it is good to accept and know are weakness so we can develop a good plan to keep it under control. Your own the right path. Never give up!

    I use to have an addiction to ice cream didn't matter what flavor if it was in the house it wasn't there long. I would buy 4 liter pails and it would be gone before the week was out!
    Now I can have it in the house (only buy ti when Walt asks for it) and it doesn't even phase me. I forget it's even there until Walt asks for a dish of it
    And even when I'm dishing it out for him I might have a tablespoon. But if I want some for myself I do but not four liters at a time!

    I love ice cream. I haven't had any in months now. I tried buying ice cream sandwiches and eating them slowly but can't even do that - if they are in the house I get up at night and eat the whole box.

    Good for you not binging.

    I am trying something new. When my head says, "you deserve ___ (fill in blank) because life is so stressful... blah, blah, blah". I say back (back talk is good in this case), you deserve to live healthy and that _____ will not allow you to live healthy. Is it really worth it?

    Now... sometimes it is! But not all the time and not even most of the time for me.

    I got through Easter and Peep time... I can do anything!!!! emoticon

    One day at a time Meddy!
    You've hit on my weakness and I would probably have done the same. I've quit having those trigger foods in the house "for my grandkids". More often than not they were not the one's eating them. Out of town company is still a challenge. My best defense when they leave is to pack up remaining food I bought for them and take it over to my daughters; with 3 teenagers it doesn't last long there and doesn't do any damage.
    Today my grandkids are fine with pretzels as munchies. Something more if it's a planned visti. For a sweet treat we'll go out for frozen yogurt; in that situation portion control is reasonable. The ice cream in my freezer--I will finish off. More and more my grandkids are good with my healthy choices.
    Remember we're shooting for progress; not perfection. You're making great progress!!

    Why not make your own yogurt ice cream at home low fat plain yogurt, sweetner, and your favourite berries. I also use vanilla, toffee, and home made sweets essences.. Whom says you have to give up stuff- it freezes rock hard. I would love to have a ice cream maker and try the recipe out in this for a less hard consistance.. Make ice blocks from our ½ cup of juice max portion.. Also hits the spot in hot weather..

    Really? It helped me a LOT, that I realized my body is allergic against diary products and I feel MUCH better without.

    Ive got a vegan chocolade icecream in the freezer, which is fine, but not as fine as "proper" ice-cream ... So easier to resist ;)

    Gratulation for not binge eating after two really emotional situations :)

    I haven't had icecream in years but if it was in my freezer in a flavor I loved like chocolate fudge brownie or butter pecan it would be calling my name. Congrats on not binging!
