Hi everyone, quick 1st question: Have really bad gas.ate hamburger helper and my tummy keeps going bloop bloop.Vitamin Shoppe is not ?

My 2nd question is: My daughters 5th B-day party (tear ) is on Sat. My BFF ordered a cake from a really great (and expensive) bakery. I know there is no way I can resist the cake so I have already decided to have a small piece. Should I cut out my proteins or snack that day? How can I still have the cake without jeopardizing my NS?.

Thanks,.

Jenna.

P.S. I also plan on hitting the gym that morning...

I know it is not a great thing to cheat since you just started on NS but at least you plan on going to the gym that morning..

I can understand how you feel you can't resist having a piece of cake from your daughter's birthday cake. (happy birthday to her in advance).

There is a bakery here in Boston which is so good and every time I go somewhere that has their cake there is no way I can totally resist it. In other circumstances I can no problem because I am picky about the frosting, but this place...yum.

So I say at least you have admitted to yourself you are going to have a piece and as long as it is a small one allow yourself that pleasure and then get back on track to NS 100%..

I'm worried about Christmas! We all get together at my Mom's on the 23rd and all of my DH's family is coming here for the week of Christmas. I think that I'm going to eat on Christmas Day and just hop right back on NS on the 26th. I simply can't resist cookies at Christmas and I certainly don't plan on living the rest of my life without Christmas goodies...

I am planning on only eating Christmas dinner, and making it as healthy as we can...

My girls are 20 and 21 and I don't remember much about their birthday but I do remember that the cake was always chcolate with thick frosting and we always had it at a resturant. This is sad when I look back on how I focused so much on the food and not the people. Focus on your daughter's experience because it only comes around once. Good Luck.

Dear MTS001,.

What I do in your situation is to drink lots of water before I go somewhere where there's going to be a lot of food & goodies, and perhaps a small salad or NS bar so if I'm already slightly full, maybe all those goodies won't seem so tempting..

It's like anything else, when you have cravings for different restaurants or a certain food, and once you eat something healthy and are full, that craving seems to go away and we ask ourselves "why did I even want that fattening food?" Or, if we do give in to our temptation, then we're mad at ourselves and feel guilty about it....and maybe it wasn't even as good as our mind was telling us it would be..

Just go ahead and have what you want, but maybe just have a little taste of everything and attempt to eat some of the healthier choices.....if there aren't any, make something like lowfat/sugar cookies or goodies you like. Almost everything we eat can be made into a lowfat version/ Just don't beat yourself up over it and do the best you can. Get right back on track the next day. No one said it's easy, but our brain plays tricks on us. All we can do is try our best. Good luck!..

Don't Plan 2 Cheat...instead, Plan 2 Make A Choice..

Have a SMALL piece of the cake instead of your NutriSystem dessert...DRINK a ton more water...and hit that treadmill hard..

This is for life, not for a brief period of dieting and then back to same ol' same ol' again..

Practice now for the rest of your eating life..

Be well...

Here is my take on this. I started NS in mid April. I have lost 42 pounds and have hit my goal. Along the way, I did have a few cheats here and there. I did not eat NS on special occasions or holidays. I just ate a little bit of the regular food and a very small piece of dessert.

Just don't see this as once I cheat, then I am done dieting. This is a life long track. I am now eating some regular food and some NS. Occasionally I have a special food or dessert, then back to healthy eating and exercise. Good Luck and enjoy that cake.

A small piece will do the trick!!..

I know I do what you do. I plan on the days that I know I will cheat. Which I don't think is wise on my part. I say I will only eat this certain thing..and then there are other things around that I want to try so I eat them I keep them in small portions, but it's still a lot of calories adding up. I recently cheated for two days by eating birthday cake, rice krispies, chicken dinner, gravy..etc. It tasted really good, but it wasn't worth how I felt after.

I ended up gaining back a pound, which isn't a big deal for me since I can lose it easily. But to other people it can be a set back. So just do what you think is right. As long as you work it off I think you should be fine. Best of luck..

I know it's not what you want to hear, but you don't actually have to cheat. I didn't even have a piece of my own birthday cake on my birthday.

This was when I just started and I knew if I didn't detox my body from all the sugar and junk I'd never be able to stop.

You could figure out how many calories it is and work it off on the treadmill.

My sister does that as a 'punishment' for when she eats something she shouldn't. Sometimes when you see how much longer you have to work out it's not worth it...
