See's Candy, The Moderation Edition

I grew up eating See's Candy every year at Christmas.  Their confections are scrumptious and I loved how my dad seemed to know which ones were which.. a helpful skill since a picture guide isn't on the lid.

Last year a student gave me a gift card to See's and I finally got around to redeeming it yesterday. Eric and I had fun picking out our favorites to create a custom box.

Before I started consciously tracking everything I eat, I would have thought nothing about chowing down on the box. Now, however, I consider carefully.  I had 3 pieces yesterday and 1 today so far. I am at -1 WW points for the week, and that's only because I forgot to add in the store sample I had.  Whoops! I can go work it off tonight, though, and be positive again.

Moderation in all things, indeed. It makes me feel less deprived if I can have some sweet treats instead of cutting them all out. I'm still going down on the scale, too!

What treats have you been able to work in without going overboard?
