I messed up again...I mean-I'm doing really good with drinking enough water and i have been drinking about 4 cups of green tea, i got up early and did a little tae-bo then walked to school. I had a field trip for stuco and we sat around laughing at this comedian guy that was telling us to be good leaders. Then-sadly-we went to McDonalds adn I order a McRib value meal, and an ice cream sundae-i dont know why but everyone else had ice cream adn i just kinda gave into temptation. I felt really bad afterwards too. How can I resist the temptation i get when i'm around my friends?

just remember this: "a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips" and the MORE you eat....the MORE you have to work off!!!!

It is very hard to resist when all your friends are eating sweets. Here are some suggestions:
1. Are your friends struggling with a weight problem... or at least some of them? If they are, then make a plan to only have a dessert once a week or something.
2. Only have the ice cream when you are with your friends, and not when you go with your family or alone. That only works if you don't go with your friends alot though.
3. If all else fails, bring alot some minty gum or breath mints.... or even your toothbrush and toothpaste. The mint will make the ice cream taste gross, and you won't want it as much.
Good luck!

i have a lot of problems with this at marty's because he acctually has a tasre bud disorder and can only eat sweet foods without throwing up. i just make a healthy alternative or i don't even take a bite of it because i know that if itake a bite of it i'll eat it all. i clasp my hands together and ignore it. good luck! i know this isn't easy but remember that it is possible!
