Day 5-Got Trough The Night Without Eating!

Sunday, November 22, 2009

5 down, 23 to go! I'm going to break this habit once and for all.

I went to bed early last night but I still woke up with a headache. I don't know if it's because of waking up 2 or 3 times during the night to potty. Today I'll try to get my 8-12 glasses in before 8:00 pm and maybe that will help keep me from running all night. Anyway, other than that, I'm am grateful to be alive and well.

Have a grrreat day! Hugs~Sabrina

Day 4-Got Trough The Night Without Eating!

Saturday, November 21, 2009

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonCan you tell? I'm excited! It goes to show, you can do anything you put your mind to do.

I am so grateful to my friend DAWNROBIN *aka* WaterWoman because 4 days ago she planted some seeds for me and now they're beginning to grow. Thanks Dawn for spreading the Spark!

This morning was bitter/sweet or should I say sweet/bitter because DH had me up half the night and now I'm up with the kids w/headache. When my sleep is broken, I'm a wreck the next day. Hopefully a cup of coffee will do me some justice. Here, have one with me. emoticon

Have A GRRREAT Day Everyone! Don't forget to spread the spark.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! I am so proud of you!!! And you lost ANOTHER pound. How coooool is that!! I was awake all night fighting the urge to give in and eat. Not because I was hungry, there were no hunger pains but, because it is an addiction. You know exactly what I am talking about. But you know what?? I made it through my first night!!! I'm so proud of me..LOL.

Day 2-Got Trough The Night Without Eating!

Thursday, November 19, 2009

I made it through another night without eating but I could not make out the feeling I was having last night. It felt like hunger because my stomach had that burning sensation you get when you're hungry. It could also be my body responding to what I've taught it and that is, to expect something to eat at sleep time.

It takes 28 days to break a habit so I'm going to give it everything I got. 2 down, 26 more to go. I will pay more attention to that feeling tonight, if I get it. Hopefully I'll be sound asleep.

Have a grrreat day!

    Would it help to plan a snack before you go to bed?

The notion that we shouldn't eat after 5:30, or 7:30 or whenever is outdated and has been disproved

    emoticon just take it one day at a time. You can and will do this! I know it is hard not to do but try not to think about it. When those hunger pangs come drink, a nice glass of cold water. You could even spruce it up by having some seltzer water with some cut up fruit in it and put it in a pretty glass just to make it special just like the special person you are.

emoticon emoticon emoticon now where are the lemon, lime, or oranges when you need them

I did it!

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

I got through the night without eating. I've struggled with night time eating for a very long time. The last couple of days it has started to affect something in me. The disappointment I feel every morning when I awake, was making me feel like a failure. I would give myself a pep talk every night before bed saying, " I will NOT eat tonight, I CAN DO THIS!!!" Then wake up a failure every morning. It was beginning to take a toll. Because of my honesty and willingness to share where I am with others, I was given a suggestion by a fellow Sparker. She said to make a sign and put it on the door so when I get up it'll be the first thing I see. I had a open mind and went to the grocers and got a nice size box and wrote," STOP, DANGER, PRAYER CHANGES THINGS(Eat the word of GOD!), SPARK then a arrow pointing in the direction of my computer, Are YOU Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired?".

"Don't eat at night" is one of my SparkStreaks and I'm hoping to look back one day and say, "I've conquered that issue" but for now, I settle for ONE more night. One day, ONE step, and ONE pound at a time! Here's to another successful night!

Have A Sparktacular Day!!!

    Way to go Sabrina! Just remember how proud you feel right now compared to the guilt you would normally feel if you had eaten. Keep it up girl!

    Wow, that's a milestone to overcome something you've conditioned yourself to do. You broke a habit last night which is extremely hard to do, and with every night it will become easier and easier. Good luck to you, you're well on your way!
