I had a piece of cheesecake and a mini eclair last weekend for the first time in months. I generally stay away from those items. But I took like 7 units and was pretty much fine. Now I am thinking what's the harm in having sweets with dinner or something if I bolus properly or have an ice cream sundae. Is that a bad way to think since maybe I got lucky just this one time.

Ever since I got the Pump, I bolus ALL the time for sweets... I am the WORST person to have diabetes because I love sweets... but If you bolus the right about, you should def be fine. I mean I wouldnt go eat a gallon of Ice Cream, something simple like an Ice Cream Cone or snickers bar is fine.
You are right I always try to limit my ice cream to a Quart - but a gallon sounds awesome
- I wonder if therre is enough insulin in my cartridge to cover it!
I do this sometimes, but generally really try to stay away from desserts. It's a rare treat that I allow myself something like this, and I try hard not to make a habit of it. Even though I'm clearly still producing some insulin, desserts are hard for me to guestimate and my BSL ends up going all over the map (like over 200 and then down to 60 because I over-corrected).
