I live In a part of the country where It stays warm a little longer, when I have a sweet tooth I grab a sugar free popsicle they come In great flavors I keep them In the freezer@ all times. There about 10 calories cool & just enough of a treat.
I've been exercising aerobics and weight training 6-7 days a week for a month now. I've dropped 3-5 lbs. Also by eating a healthy diet (low sodium, lots of veggies, low carb, low sugar) helps.
I have a big problem with cravings at night after dinner. I've started to delay gratification instead of just denying myself. I do this by doing just a couple of minutes of quick exercise immediately. (like some jumping jacks) If I still want to eat something sweet after I finish (and very often the craving has passed by that point) then I let myself have something small like one Dove dark chocolate or a couple of small pieces of Panda licorice. But I have to earn it.
Now I need to loose and keep off the last 50. Re frame you can always eat what you want now, tomorrow.
