    Or how about you have already closed out your food diary for the night??

  18. Avatar Paula says:

    OK OK….I’ve used one or two of these, but every ONCE IN A WHILE we have to allow ourselves a treat. I know that if I don’t allow myself that treat once in a while, I will get frustrated with eating healthy, and use the excuse that it’s too hard to follow a healthy diet. Gotta get that treat ONCE IN A WHILE!!!

    Calories don’t count during “that time of the month” ever. lol

      Indeed, they can’t! It’s my stupid body that wants mounds of chocolate; my brain is reeling in horror! I shouldn’t have to count calories that are vociferously protested by my brain and insisted upon by my stupid PMS.

      • Avatar Caty says:

        Ugh, chocolate and Dr. Pepper for me. I’ve been able to at least reduce how much I consume but I can’t just eliminate them during that time.

  25. Avatar Michelle Murray says:

    • Avatar Kelly O says:

      If you bought the food at a gas station (and that includes those awesome tacos and/or barbecue at hole in the wall joints) then it doesn’t count.

  28. Avatar ILove2Run says:

    Yeah right! Everything that goes in your mouth counts!!!!
