  • Becareful ladies or at least be wiser than me. I've been doing this for way too long, thinking I deserve something after making it through a long day of work and kids and family, and now I'm over 100 pounds over weight. I call myself a closet eater (waiting until the kids were asleep) and a self sabotager. I use to tell myself it could be worse, I could be drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes or doing drugs. Well I found my drug of choice and I've done my body a lot of harm.

  • We sneak a snack from time to time, or put them down and run to Taco Bell etc. However, this question made me think of a friend of mine. She asked me to teach her how to bake all different kinds of Christmas cookies. So, I did and she called me later and I asked her what the kids thought of them. Her response was they liked them, but we only gave them on a piece. We are saving the rest for the adults. I thought that was really mean and selfish. Just sayin.

  • lol prettyrayray I have a glass of wine now and then too.. QandA, I totally understand where you are coming from. I watch my weight and workout. But every blue moon I buy ice cream and cones or some other treat for the family. My hubby is hard on himself about his weight (I have no Idea why is is tall and trim), but the Army tapes them. So I guess that's why. So most of the time we don't have sweets in the house except healthy ones.

  • Once or twice a week I'll enjoy a candy bar after my daughter goes to bed. She has yet to enjoy a candy bar...trying to hold off until she's older! :-)
