And this is where I binged. I even got unsweetened tea, but I ate way too much. Then I bought a candy bar. I put the brownie mix back on the shelf but I grabbed a package of Oreo cookies instead. I cannot do this no artificial sweetener thing. I find myself craving sugar and eating too much, and eating things that are considerably worse for me than artificial sweeteners. All week long, I've noticed that when I don't have my coffee at work, I eat. When I'm home and can't have my tea, I eat. I struggle so much with making the right choices as it is. This is making it a million times harder. Call me weak, call me a failure. I'm calling it picking my battles.

So did you decide what you're doing about the sweetener thing? I have a feeling that if I tried to do what you did that I'd do the same thing. I honestly don't think you consume that much sweetener so I think you'd be fine to go back to what you were doing but then again what you decide to do is completely up to you. Dust yourself off and pull yourself together. You can get back to it - I have faith. :)

I have gone back to drinking my coffee and tea (with about half as much sweetener as I was using) and pop because it was just making me eat way too much. In the two days that I've been back and counting points, I'm not nearly as hungry and I've been able to stay on plan much better if I get my coffee in the morning. And the last two days (and tomorrow) I only have 1 mug of coffee instead of two.
