No shame. I licked pizza sauce off a slice of pizza my kid didn’t eat. Lol I’m doing my full liquid diet for my surgery on the 16th and I’m already bored by broth and Jello lol
Lol.... yeah that’s technically “liquid”

I ate Taco Bell a few days ago, mind you it was a taco. Thats it. But still the internet food police would have you believe you'll die if you eat fast food. I absolutely do not make it a habit and Im still losing weight. Went to a bbq last night and ate Doritos and 1/2 a hamburger patty with cheese. Its all about balance.

Last week on my way to drop off my son at Camp Wakonda we stopped and picked him up some Mc Donalds along the way. He usually finishes his food so I had no worries. But this time he left like 1/3 of his fries in the car alone with me for the drive home. Now I've been so good at not ordering myself anything from Micky D's and resisting the temptation of stealing fries from him. But for some reason, maybe it was being all alone with them, I caved. I ate them all. It was so good. The grease, the salt, the starch. Unfortunately my stomach wasn't too happy with my decision. The whole hour and a half drive home I was completely miserable with abdominal pain and nausea. Never again!

I wish fries made me sick but they sit just fine in my stomach! :( I think I've had fries maybe 3x and wont make it a habit but yeah. I wish stuff made me sick and pretty much nothing does

Im 3 wks po and was so sick of Water i drank a 12 oz soda. Took like an hour but no problem with my stomach just the guilt knowing that I had 150 empty calories.

I don't even like reg.pepsi I am a diet Pepsi drinker. But that's what was available.

I am in month 3 post and had popcorn at the movies and a little birthday cake/cookie on my sons 4th birthday last week. Got to experience how “slider foods” are, because I was able to eat way more popcorn than I should have. Probably had a few cups during Toy Story 4. But I was consciously making that decision. Won’t make it a habit.

This whole idea of cheats doesn't really sit well with me. I do eat 'unnecessary' foods, but just in very small amounts - small enough for me to still lose weight. I can eat 5 or 6 chocolate buttons without wanting to binge on them. For me, if there are forbidden foods, I feel like I'm 'on a diet' and that mindset has always failed for me in the past...I have a tendency to rebel!

I know my Achilles heel is alcohol, so that is what I avoid, apart from special social occasions. It's a balance that seems to be working for me...if it doesn't in the future, then I'll change it!

ps When I do drink alcohol on special occasions, I am extremely naughty and then I unexpectedly lose weight the next day - I bet it's dehydration! 😲😀

Despite eating what I thought was enough for a while my weight had dropped a bit so I bought a bag of pretzel rods to eat with Peanut Butter to stabilize/maintain. I ate so many that I ended up throwing the rest away because I was just plain tired of it. This is the first time I truly didn't enjoy something but choked it down. Never again. I bet it doesn't even help. Carbs not enjoyed seems to disappear into the ether. I should have just bought ice cream 😒

I ate s’mores. Microwave s’mores. No regrets for the ones I ate, but I’m 3 lbs over my usual zone so I’ve now hidden the box with all the ingredients in the back of the cupboard. See you in late January, s’mores!

I literally sucked the chocolate off a fun size twix on Halloween. Spit the rest out. Lol. That was the worst I've done so far. Felt so guilty afterwards, I haven't strayed since.

Okay, so this may sound like a ridiculous thing to stress about after reading some of these cheats, but this weekend I grabbed some lifesavers out of our candy bucket at work this weekend.
The first one was because I had just gulped down some pepperoni and pepper jack cheese cubes and I had to go give a family flu shots and I didn’t want to knock them over with my bad breath, but the first one led to a second, and then a third.
It happened so fast and shocked me at how easy it was to suck all of that useless sugar down in less than an hour. The craving for more was with me for a few hours and it legit worried me.

I bought some sugar-free breath mints and now have some of those in my cubby.

I ate a bite of a Cookies and cream croissant. I'm barely 4 weeks post-op. We were at a german restaurant/bakery and my wife was asking the server about the croissant and what was in it. It looked like chocolate but also had white stuff. Server didn't know but I pestered them that they could give us (4 people) one to try and we could tell them. Well it worked and I wasn't about to tell them I couldn't eat it after cajoling them to get one for free!! I took one bite of the 1/4 of the croissant I was given and loved it. Gave the rest to my wife lol.

I really like this thread!

My cheat was this past weekend. I scraped some cheese and pepperoni topping off of a domino's pizza my parents bought for my younger sibling. It was tough resisting that smell 😕

Lol, I don’t consider that a cheat. You made a really smart choice based off of your situation.
Yeah, pizza smell is tough to beat. Last week someone dropped off scripts through the drive through and they had just picked up pizza.
I wasn’t hungry at all, but that smell..... omg I wanted some pizza
