Every time I go out to eat at a good restaurant I see a lot of the desserts and all I was is to eat it. Why is it so hard to fight on wanting all the sugar. So I really try to stay away from it and eat healthy but I feel that I am still not doing anything right.

My boyfriend and I may go to a buffet restaurant maybe 2-3 times a month. But every time we go I am always wanting in to the dessert area of it. But it not just that now. I work in an in home health taking care of people and it's hard to fight the fight wanting to take a piece of the candy but I am doing better on telling myself that I don't need it. It just makes it hard when people keep offering me can anytime I go out some where even so store will ask me. But it is a constant fight on wanting the sweet wonder junk food.

I go to buffets here in Las Wages quite often and it is a matter of knowing how to eat low carb at one of these. I do occasionally have a treat of a NSA dessert especially when I avoid the higher carb offerings. But I know it is always a temptation to eat too much of the wrong things in a place like like that.

God's best to you and yours

It takes time to re-educate your palate…remember that it took years for you to get where you are. It does become somewhat easier as time goes on. I was always a big dessert eater/baker. I no longer bake and will allow myself one bit of a dessert if I can't resist. I tell myself that the last bite will taste as good as the first one, so I don't need more. Gaining control of my diabetes is the reward for resisting the creamy, gooey, gloppy yummy stuff. I figure it's pay me now (by depriving myself) or pay me later (by dealing with serious diabetes complications.) (Doesn't mean I don't drool/salivate when I watch the Great British Baking Show!)

There is a buffet that I visit once or twice a month. I can have a nice salad and plenty of protein and a tiny taste of usually forbidden foods and sometimes try something new. They also have a really great desert bar and yes, I do visit it too. No, I don't feel guilty about it, it isn't every day. Does It make me want more? No, I don't think so. Keeps me happy for a little while to know that every now and then, I can. Some of the regular restaurants have the mini deserts now, the ones that come in a small glass instead of the humongous portion that seems to be the norm in most places. Don't go out to those places much these days because income is much reduced since retiring.

How often do you eat out at restaurants? Can you allow yourself a treat now and then? You don't have to deprive yourself all of the time. It's really okay now and then to give yourself a treat, just not all of the time. Be careful, and maybe try splitting the dessert with someone else ?
