So, check, I'm eating breakfast at home the past two days before work. I had peanut butter toast yesterday and cereal today. Yesterday, I had cherries for snack. I took vegetables and shrimp for lunch yesterday, and I had the chicken out of the Orange Chicken Lean Cuisine today. Dinner yesterday was a turkey, ham, bacon wrap. I only ate half. Today was baked Mahi Mahi with rice and whole grain bread. Now the bad. Yesterday, a coworker brought me chocolate cakes/brownies. I had three 2x2 squares. Then I had a large dipped ice cream cone from Dairy Queen. Today has been bad. I had two malted chocolate balls. I had two Little Debbie cupcakes, and I had a big chocolate chip cookie. I also had two cans of sweet pop. What is wrong with me that I gorge on these sweets? I really can't be this week, can I?
I was sick all day today from eating raw veggies and cherries yesterday. I cannot tolerate raw produce at all, I guess. Now veggies today or fruit. I had to work 10 to 8, so 10 hours of stress. I think I handle stress by eating sweets. I don't know. Right now, I must go to bed.

    Oh, I know how you feel! I haven't eaten raw veg for close to three years now and only apples, bananas, avocadoes, and the occasional peach for fruit. UC just doesn't like them. I snack on crackers and cheese, the reduced-fat varieties of both. And my downfalls are chips, chocolate, and cookies. So I never (make that only occasionally) buy chips and cookies. But I do keep bars of dark chocolate in the refrigerator and dole it out in 15-gram servings a couple of times a day to satisfy that addiction. I work at home, so mercifully I'm not exposed to other people's food gifts at work.

    That said, I struggle even looking down the chips and snacks aisle at the store. If I buy a bag of chips, it won't last more than a few hours. I just can't help myself. I almost caved on Monday. Who knows what'll happen the next time. Yesterday wasn't so good. I ate a bag of gummi bears (yeah, I know) and have been resisting the Clark Bar I bought. Maybe if I put it in the back of the refrigerator, I'll forget about it.

    Hang in there. You can get past this. emoticon

    Hmmmmm, well you wrote it down & it does show that you are being accountable to you. We must be accountable, take ownership & assume responsibility for our actions. Know your triggers.

    If you are stressed you can't fill that void by eating sweets. Try some fruit (Kiwi, Strawberries, an apple) or if you can, go for a quick walk. Find ways to deal with stress. I'm not good at handling stress but I am learning that there are healthier ways to deal with it.

    BTW, you are not weak! You are human like the rest of us! We are all prone to slipping up or making mistakes along the way. That is why this journey is not so much about 'dieting' as it is about making 'lifestyle changes' Forever!!! This journey is all about learning. Also, keep a diary of what you are eating. You can learn so much from it. Take time to re-read your food journal & think back how you were feeling at the time you ate that cookie, brownie or the salad or fruit. You will be amazed at how much insight you will gain from this & how much you will learn about you. Then you can make the necessary changes to help you along.

    You will be fine! emoticon
