I don't think it is so much a matter of will power. I have a strong will in all other areas of my life so it seems to be more about stopping and thinking about my emotions before I turn to food. I have a chemical reaction that happens in my brain when I am upset or nervous and the feeling I get in the moment that I am consuming sugary treats, pacifies that emotion for a short while and provides relief.

But, when I am abstaining from the sugar and simple carbs, and eating more vegetables and drinking water, I seem to be able to think more clearly and when I get stressed I can stop and take a moment before reaching for the sweets. It is in that moment that I can talk to myself before I act out and binge.

I think you have strong willpower. You just have to give yourself a chance to find your moment of clarity before you react. If you can have that moment to acknowledge that the junk food will not satisfy you and in the end, will not solve the problem, you can find something else to occupy your mind until the craving passes.

Thanks for remind me of this. Have a wonderful week and keep Sparkin'...it works!

Hugs to you Sparkfriend!

Stopping by Renee to see how you are doing. Hope you are doing well. Focus on remembering this journey is not about perfection, but one of having a healthier lifestyle. Hope you have a good rest of the week! emoticon Sarah

Just stopped by to see how you are doing. I am back on track and working to stay that way through the stressful holidays.

My goal is to lose 8 lbs. by Jan. 1st, 2013. I am working out 4 days a week and eating within my calorie range. I am eating more fruits and veggies and cut way back on sugar and simple carbs.

When I get stressed out, I remind myself that binging on comfort foods will never fill me up inside. I may think I feel better for a short time but, in the end, I will never be satisfied and then I will regret what I did.

I have found that eating more vegetables and drinking my water has helped reduce my sugar cravings. WooHoo!

The past is the past...it is time to move forward. We CAN do this!

Have a wonderful Sparkly week!
