so that I could eat a home made fruit cake at tea time....
sooooo glad I did it, these home made fruit cakes are amazing....

I don't really sacrifice - it's more that I only allow myself a limited amount of snacks. "OK, tonight you have a party, you're going for either the beer or the chocolate, and whichever you choose, you can only take a certain amount of it." Like that.

On weekends, I sometimes sacrifice food for alcohol... Gee, that kinda makes me sound like an alcoholic. Anyway, if I'm having sweets, I won't have alcohol and vice versa.

It doesn't really sound like you sacrificed anything, you just traded one treat for a different one.

I sacrifice junk and eating until I'm stuffed, so I can have yummy food (nuts! avocado!), and really good dessert when I have it.

A variety! Each has different strengths. Same as with veggies and fruits.

They say almonds are the healthiest because of their heart health qualities among other things. I've seen them touted as one of the top 10 foods you should eat...

I don't "sacrifice," I make adjustments accordingly. If I know I'm going out to dinner, I'll eat a lot lighter during the day, so that I can have some more room with dinner to actually order what I want, instead of being really strict and feeling like "NO! I CAN'T have that." That way, I feel a lot less guilty and I know that I made smart choices all day. That's how I know I've definitely learned something on this journey..I never would have thought about that stuff before and just ate what I wanted all day long. No more!

I'm really lucky that I don't like chocolate or sweets. I never even thought about eating sweets until I get on here and realize that the whole women and chocolate thing is not a myth. I gained my weight by just eating too much of bad food, so thats what I'm sacrificing I guess, bad food. But I feel 100% better so I guess I was actually sacrificing before, sacrificing feeling good for too much bad food. My bf is a fast food junky and being in school that was just easier.. bad idea.
