1. YES - then accept the fact that you have eaten them and enjoyed them...count the syns and allow yourself that one treat then get back on plan 100%
2 - NO - then next time you are tempted - remember how you feel afterwards and you won't waste your time/syns eating them in the first place!
Temptation is everywhere - but in saying that dieting should not be a punishment and you should be allowed to slip - as long as you acknowledge the slip.....and get right back on track.....no thinking - oh well I've had a box...might as well open the mince pies now too!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought myself some Lindor chocolates and 1 ball in 4 syns. I allow myself 1 every evening after dinner. I think if you can allow yourself a little each day, it can prevent you from having a binge. Not guaranteed at times of mental/emotional stress though!
