You have never heard of jumping candy bars? No, I do not mean jumping beans (and if you are too young to know what a jumping bean is, ask someone older). Every time I would get in a checkout line for groceries, etc. , candy bars "jumped" into my cart to go home with me. Now at least 1 of these jumping candy bars never made it home because it was devoured on the drive home.
Since I have joined SP, I never leave the house hungry (eat an apple, drink more water). I try to have "blinders" when stuck in a slow line as they always have the high calorie candy bars right next to your shopping cart just ready to jump. Keep a sharp eye out for the "jumpers" and do not let them win!
I still have the occasional taste of something chocolate (like in my Trail Mix), but I do not indulge myself like I used to. I am enjoying seeing my body size change for the better, feel better about myself keeping away from so much sugar, and realizing the old saying "once on the lips, forever on the hips" is soooooooooo true.
In parting today I leave you with the following to think about:
From this moment forward…I stop the blame game and excuses. I am responsible for my life and for where I am today. I cannot blame the people and circumstances in my past, and I refuse to hide behind my past mistakes.
