    Sometimes, you just need to throw caution to the wind ! Tonight I had chocolate millionaire shortbread cheesecake with Ben & Jerrys hazelnut ice cream ! I feel like I just cheated on my wife lol !

    Haha know how that feels on my husband though
    If I have anything I think I shouldn't I mumble to myself for ages
    But I also think sometimes you just got to let go and breathe
    As long as you reign yourself back in I think occasionally its fine well that's my philosophy :)

    OMG OMG OMG what are your BS like then ? I'm torn about being worried for you and the other part of me is envious, but I just couldn't and wouldn't :( but I really do hope you enjoyed it.

    I was very tempted to buy a Value Trifle the other day.

    But I forwent the luscious Strawberry jelly,the cheap custard and the whipped cream for a selection of 10 calorie jelly pots.

    Didn't taste the sane but I felt very good afterwards.

    Know just what you mean though.

    I am officially a member of the Jelly Club !!

    Yes, it has aspartame in it.

    But I can't see how you can eat sugar free jelly without Aspartane ??

    Can you ??
