Daniel, you sound like the rational physician now! Oh Fie! To have a root beer float topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and a lovely sprinkle of nuts on top!

Felaine, it would be a lot healthier to have your root beer float, without the ice cream and the root beer.  :-)

When I was on the diet about 3 days, I was shopping and saw that I was approaching the ice cream parlor that sells delicious Ice cream for $1 a scoop or cup.  I looked at my clock and saw that it was just past their opening time of noon, so I popped-in.

I started to order three cups of varieties that I've not tried before, when I realized I was on the Atkins diet, so I took the one cup she had made, took it home and put it in the freezer, where it still resides until I start adding carbs back in the diet.

Two healthy things to do, according to some science magazines: eat chocolate and watch cat movies. Or have daily conversations with cats!

Oh my goodness, No! Spud. You wouldn't give up, any more than I wouldn't give up. Life is about facing challenges with grit and vinegar! I did have the spark knocked out of me for a few days, but recovery returned soon enough to make me want to work harder.

Ooooh, I would like a root beer float, but I'm going to resist because I've been on the Atkins diet for 2 weeks now and have lost 12 pounds.  I do eat all the strawberries from my garden, but my two small patches don't produce many, so they don't hurt the diet too much.  I also dip into my yogurt every 5 days and have a tablespoon of that.

Sk8ey - Following Randall's lead, if you didn't have whipped cream and chocolate sauce on your root beer float, it was comparatively speaking a healthy diet dish.

Felaine, I could give you a dozen cliches for which to rationalize your naughty indulgence. I'm the expert in using them! Enjoy!

I'll try.....there's a mockingbird outside who may help me.  He sits  on the chimney every night and hollers, "Dirty!  Dirty!  Dirty!"

I sew baddddd!  I just ordered vanilla ice cream and A&W root Beer from Store2Door. (They ONLY deliver....make great sammidges, too.)

I've been thinking "root beer float" all day, and finally gave in to it.

Am I forgiven?
