Got any tips on how to stop from cheating?

The sweet siren sound of the pumpkin pie in the fridge. Nor was I strong enough to resist the seductive charms of her evil cousin, whipped cream.

Did you have one small piece (probably ok) or the whole pie?

If you resolve to give up pumpkin pie and whipped cream completely, you will probably have an extremely difficult time of it.

If it calls you, have a little piece. Emphasis on the word little.

And if you screw up, start over again tomorrow. Don't beat yourself up over it.
