I've been overseas for the last week and a half on a work trip and I took a little No-S hiatus while I was gone.

When I want something sweet after dinner, I make myself a cup of decaf or herb tea with a little honey. It feels a tiny bit indulgent without being a sugary treat.

I agree, when I am in these high pressure dessert situations, usually a simple "no thanks" is enough. But when people are persistent, I just say "I'm watching my weight" or if I want to be cute, "I'm watching my girlish figure". It is totally honest, to the point, and that should be the end of the d...
