Each month we take turns with the birthday cakes at work. Well this month was my turn to make the cake. Well I didn't want to bake it because It's hot out and I didn't want to smell it baking and temp myself with the batter. So I went to the local store and purchased the most delicious looking death by chocolate ice cream cake. I was so proud of myself. I cut it, served it and didn't have any.

Everyone was like can't you have a small piece. I was like no thanks I don't want any. If I have a taste then I will know what I am missing. If I don't have any it really doesn't bother me. I just told myself my usual saying.

You can have it another time. As long as I know that someday I can have a piece I am ok waiting...

Good job! Knowing that those decadent treats will still be waiting when we are down to our preferred size makes it much easier to keep on task!.

I haven't found a food that I can't say no to yet! My biggest weakness has been Rum! I love it - and when my husband comes home on friday evening after stopping at the "special store" with bottle in hand it is really tough for me to say....... NO thanks. Most of the time I can handle it, but there have been times when I've had just a little........

Good for you, and good for you for recognizing that you did something praiseworthy! We need to fill ourselves with more positive talk every time we triumph over temptation so we reinforce those good choices. Way to go!..

Great job! And thank you for sharing - your words have motivated me! I have been struggling lately with rationalizing "just a taste," and your post is dead-on. You reminded me that I can just say no and never realize what I am missing, and that this is not the last chance I will ever have to eat cake/chocolate/brownies/whatever....

Congrats again and keep up the good work!..

Thank you everyone! It took me a long time to realize that I needed to have that kind of attitude. Before I would have had a small piece and then when everyone left I would have had another big one because I would have it stuck in my head. I would treat every meal or snack like it was my last meal. lol My mind is in such a better place and I have to say that no piece of cake is worth taking that feeling away...

Good job! I had to make cupcakes for a celebration this week... I didn't eat one but I did lick the homemade chocolate frosting from my finger!! I felt soooooo guilty about it too. NOT worth it! YOU ARE SO STRONG!..
