That is a good plan... I want to be more fit for Jenna. So I can play with her better, and hopefully have a longer life to spend with her.

I am not low carbing... but I know what you mean about giving in to something and then craving it a lot. Maybe if you could allow yourself a small treat once in a while it wouldn't be so bad? I don't know how low carb works, but maybe if you got like those little bite size Snickers and only had one once in a while?

Maybe just think you have come so far... do you just want to give that up? Or do the sweets taste as good as losing weight feels?

Unfortunately, some of us can't have the first bite or it starts a load of misery trying to get back on track. I have red light foods that I just can't handle - one bite and I want more and more so having the occasional treat is not the answer. The answer is to learn to reward yourself with things other than food.
