Shaking things up
Thursday, June 18, 2009
For the most part I've been doing well in sticking to my eating plan, but yesterday I had an attack of craving that I did not resist. I took a trip into town yesterday. Before I left I had a cup of yogurt and a banana for breakfast. While I was in town I started getting hungry. Instead of getting a fast food meal, which is what I would normally do, I bought a box of cereal bars from a drug store. I was pretty proud of myself. However, the bar tasted so good, I immediately began to crave a second bar with a vanilla milkshake. I drove right by a DQ but did not stop. On my way back home all I could think about was having a milkshake. When I returned home, l stopped at a fast food restaurant and bought a vanilla milkshake and it was everything I dreamed it would be. I kicked myself a little for giving into the craving, but I kept reminding myself that an occasional milkshake is not what's going to derail my progress. It's the milkshake or cup of ice cream 3 or 4 times a week that will sabotage my goals. To my great - and happy - surprise, when I got up this morning, I found I had lost 4 pounds since Saturday. Whoo-hoo!!
