I'm always puzzled when I hear the term "moderation" as it is so vague. We may think of foods in terms of moderation, but there are many other things that need to be done in moderation too. My growing list is this. Only one or two of these

I've spent many a Valentines Day with no candy due to this never ending weight loss journey! You can do it, I have faith in you!!

just having found out last june i have diabetes i have found that there is sugar free ice cream(usually just vanilla in most stores), weight watchers cookies and brownies, there is also sugard free dark chocolate squares in the baking section. I have alos found some great stuff at the drug store and walmart in the diabetes section. Sugar free chocolate bars, reeses sugar free peanut butter cups, candies,sweeteners and suagar free pancape syrup. so if cant make it through sugar free try these.

my biggest thing is carbs. they are in so much and put on the lbs

Ackkk..sugar free sweets..I cannot eat that stuff!! It's because of the manitol in them, sends me right to the bathroom!! Last month, I bought a box of peanut butter cookies, my favorite cookie flavor. I didn't notice on the label that they were sugar free!! I ate two of them and soon after, the "green apple quick step" hit me!! LOL!! I looked at the label then and saw they were sugar free!! I'm more careful now!! I also don't buy sugar free sweets hardly ever, those cookies were a rare buy, because even if they don't have manitol in them, it's still a sweet flavor and may trigger my sweet tooth to want more! Even too much of a good thing can be a bad thing and I can't trust myself. Best for me to stay away from sweets except for my weekly Applebees small dessert shooter or a bite or two of husbands dessert when we dine out.

too bad you cant trust yourself more donna

i have sugar free chocolate bars in a drawer with the sugar free pb cups. they have been there 3 weeks now. i had a bar a couple days ago. i dont find them half as adicting as sugar sweets

cant wait to go to applebys to try the shooters...2.5 hours from here...:: sigh:: someday!
