I was thinking of being faithful to taking all 3 AS daily as to keep food interests from my mind. Currently, I have been taking only 1 a day. Having 3 kids I find it hard to keep resisting their treats, but do so 99% of the time! My husband is a big treats person too! I Can't imagine not craving treats and giving in now and then- you are strong. I know I need to work on the mental side of temptation and will do so. I want to be successful and you have got me thinking of being fair to myself and not cheating even a little. Thanks
I TOTALLY know what you mean about finding it hard to resist your kids treats. I gave my kids kettle corn the other day for their snack and before I knew it I had shoved a handful in my mouth. I beat myself up about it all day long b/c I was worried it had knocked me out of ketosis-----thankfully it didn't. Like you, I've been able to resist 99% of the time, but sometimes it's just hard to resist. I'm only in Week 1 and feel horrible for falling off the wagon for that brief moment by eating that popcorn, but
I'm hoping my ability to "resist" will get stronger as I am more successful towards reaching my weight loss goal. We're all in this together----Hang in there.
