Hi Haynes2016,

I don't have 'treat days' but I do usually allow myself a few 'extras' on the weekends - I usually have a packet of crisps on Saturday and Sunday, and I also tend to have desserts on weekend evenings, whereas I don't usually do so on weekdays. I also often have a different breakfast choice or brunch on weekends.

Hope your knee gets better soon - take it easy!

Hope you've enjoyed your meals, they sound tasty.

Great that you're weighing tomorrow - and good luck!

Lowcal :-)


I have a treat everyday .... talking to all you lovely people 😀

Sorry you've got a sore knee. Was it something your kids did?!?!

Hope you had a lovely treat day on the beach .... ice cream had to be consumed 😂 or your not normal !! That's a definite treat 🌞🍦 yummy (I had a treat sized magnum today .. shhhh don't tell anyone)


I don't have treat days but build things like a bag of crisps or a bit of galaxy which I like in when I want them, within my calorie allowance.

I try to do the same, if not necessarily every day. I don't think I'll keep to healthy eating in the long term if I have to give everything up. If you're not allowed to have it, it only makes you want it more. Or it does me anyway! :)

But I do try to keep some things for "special" so I don't always have them in the house. Like potato chips (or crisps as you say here ;) ) I only get for picnics and I try save sodas for meals out.

Yep I try to focus on healthy foods first and most and don't have crisps and chocolates every day just an as and when thing. A treat is something like a take away but I don't have any rules about when a treat is earned. I've had a lot of birthdays to deal with in the last month so there have been celebratory treats that I shared in, without guilt! They were "special" things as you say Vicky :-)


see the thing is.. Believe or not I don't drink or smoke . Nor do I have sweets or crisps in the cupboard because I choose not to give my children that much of it .. Dont get me wrong they looovvve sugary foods lol that why I keep most of it out the house . My only down fall is my dinner . Like I said I was coming from a background of takeaways nearly every night .. So ita been hard .. But onwards and upwards .. Or downwards if your talking about weight lol
