I had an ice cream cone. Was not something that I planned. In our small town, we used to have an awesome drive in with the best ice cream. They have been closed for 2 years and just opened today and we didn't know it was going to so when we heard, we rushed up to have one. It was GOOD! I am feeling a little guilty about it because I have been doing so well. I reminded myself, however, that I am taking this slow and I don't have to be perfect yet. In fact, tomorrow my husband and I are going to a new restaurant for our anniversary and I don't plan on holding back. Actually, I wasn't even planning on starting my "diet" until after the summer because we are going on vacation and to the fair and I don't want to have to be so strict.
I think the key is going to be that I need to always do the best that I can. I cannot sustain a life without occasional treats or occasional favorite foods. This needs to be a lifestyle change, not a diet. I need to learn how to have treats once in awhile and not let it derail me completely.
