So when I deserve a reward I try to stick to non-food treats, but on occasionly I need sustanence! I get out a big wine goblet. Then in a container that will hold three cups add one box of sugar free jello and two cups of cold water. Mix until dissolved. Then I try to sip it slowly in a special goblet!

Since this is a life style change and not a diet I needed to learn how to eat deserts. So I now eat them in cupcake papers. Ice cream or apple pie, or a piece of cake in a cupcake paper looks festive and sufficient as compared to the same amount lost on a desert plate. Double satisfaction, having the desert and remaining in control.
