Ok. Deb is not perfect. I do some things that I am not proud of at times and last night was one.
I sent my 20 year old to Aldi to get a few items.
I had a sandwich for my dinner and yogurt and some pb crackers. Good calorie range. I noticed that he had bought these Chocolate filled sandwich cookies. HMMMMMMMMMMM ?
I resisted at first...but...
I tried one. (2 had 150 calories and I believe 7 grams of fat.) Of course, I couldn't eat just one....ending...I ate at least 6. Was I emotional eating I asked myself? I repented to myself and God. Didn't want to be lusting after chocolate even though it was dark.
I think I fasted breakfast yesterday so I don't believe I went over my calorie range. Regardless...I wanted to be accountable. I looked at the package today and kept walking.
I'm going to tell that little boy to keep his snacks in his room from now on.
Hope and Pray your day is going great!!! I had a great Physical Therapy Session and Thursday will be my last one...I pray. I'm ready to go running...lol...NOT!
I was just thinking about preparation. Being prepared in the mind to handle the "new" me. I used to almost always sabotage my success by not being prepared for the change inside and out and that's why I gained weight back and that's why I still struggled with a poor self image.
We have to work on our thoughts about ourselves and who we are becoming. I think this is a vital part of the lifestyle change. We can say we love our self and love on ourselves in that mirror all the day long but we have to believe our words and in the outcome.
Picture yourself being healthy and whole in every way. Continually see yourself with the desired weight gone. Have faith in what you are doing and truly believe that you can and will do it. Prepare your mind for success.

That's what my N O W mean No Other Way! We are a successful group of people and let's not stop until we get to the desired end and then keep on for Life!
Hope you all survived the temptations. If you ate a little something special Praise the Lord!!! You are not going to die! All is well. God is on your side. Go for a jog or walk extra. It will all be ok.
My day was great...my son and myself until he went to work at 2pm but he was off early and tore that gooey butter cake sweet potato kind up!!! He loves that cake. All that powder sugar in it makes it's velvety.
