"I Don't Want To Go To Dessert Rehab But I Must, Must, Must!"

I made a SparkRecipe dessert I like this weekend with
nonfat cottage cheese
the juice of one lemon or at least 2 Tbs. of lemon juice
(I like lemon so I used the juice of one and one-half lemons)
sugar free, fat free vanilla pudding
lowfat whip cream (there is also non fat and sugar free but it cost more)
lowfat graham crackers (I used regular, couldn't find lowfat)
I really like this recipe. I usually can't tolerate sugar free products (definitely not soda) but with sugar free pudding I do ok.
Unfortunately, just like a regular dessert I want to eat much more than I should.
I may just have to cut out desserts until I can demonstrate some self control in that area.
Today I had cantaloupe. I can handle that as a dessert. I don't go overboard with fresh fruit.
I thought since I replaced the cream cheese in the recipe with cottage cheese it would help because I CAN NOT even be around cream cheese.
I saw an episode of According to Jim and Jim's brother-in-law, Andy, was eating a stick of butter. Yes, a stick of butter. It was gross. But that is how I am with cream cheese. I can eat it without even putting it on a bagel.
What I am learning is that I am just going to have to stay away from desserts that I CRAVE. I could make a chocolate cake and it would sit there forever because I just don't like chocolate cake much. But if it is a dessert that I think about all day as it is sitting there in the fridge I have to say, "No, no, no!"
