I ATE THE WHOLE BAR....
Friday, March 27, 2009
Yesterday March 26, 2009 I was face with one of my worst demons. The demon that challenged me was temptation. At approximately 1:30PM my manager walked in with a box of assorted Chocolate Bars, ( Almonds, rice crispies, Caramel). He told everyone to take two(two not one). Everyone rushed to his office and dug in the box and took the bars of their choice. I sat at my desk pondering if I should take one. I finally got out of my seat and went to the box. In the box were Dark Chocolate and caramel bars. I must of lost consciousness because I was sitting at by desk with two bars, one dark chocolate and one caramel NET WT 1.5 oz and 200 calories a bar. The bars sat there while I weighed the pros and cons of eating the bars. I decided to give them away. Again I must of loss consciousness because i was standing at my co worker;s desk with one bar in my hands (the dark chocolate). I presented her with the bar , which made her shout with glee. I went back to my desk and preceded to work on a case. Suddenly i taste the sweet taste of chocolate and googie caramel in my mouth the sensation was a familiar taste, i had not had for a long time and i welcome the taste with each and every bite. I decided i would eat half of the bar and save the other for tomorrow(maybe by then I would come to my senses.) Well it didn't happened, I lost consciousness for the third times that day and when I came around had nothing but a wrapper to log my daily nutritious value. Yes you guessed it I ATE THE WHOLE BAR...
Today I got on the scale and I gained 3 pounds. Was it the Candy bar or have I been loosing consciousness? Who knows. Today i will move forward with my vow and commitment to loose the weight.

fall off the wagon, but dont be scared to chase after it and jump back on!!! Good to hear you will get back up and wipe yourself off.. Dont give up- it will get easier to give the 2 bars away.. it just takes time. Remember- it takes 30 days to create a habit... so keep on going, and smile its free :)

I'm faced with these demons daily. Some days I have the will power to say no, other days I give in to temptation. Work is hard because you don't have control over the food that enters the workplace.
I believe it's OK to treat yourself as long as it's in moderation. If I don't get a treat I think I would feel deprived and totally fall off the deep end.
I think it's great that you were able to give one away! That's a step in the right direction! Next time you're faced with temptation, maybe get up from your desk and go for a short walk. It helps me at work.

Whoa, you have met and eaten an enemy! The main thing here is that you knew that it was not good for you. SARURN2002, you have reached a milepoint, where you know that something that you ate, you didn't really need to eat..... stay strong and move forward if you want to lose the weight. I need to lose the weight also, and I do give encouragement to members here, but I still eat in the night, and have not been losing weight.
We seem to be on the same course, PM me if you want.
