No Sweets Until Thanksgiving

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

I started on the last Sunday in August, the 29th with no sweets until Thanksgiving. On the previous Sunday, when I was getting ready for church, I went to put on my stockings, and couldn't get them over my thighs. I felt upset, angry, mad, and embarassed. But I knew I wasn't eating that much but what I was eating, which was sweets, packed on more pounds. I told my husband and he said ok, but then had the nerve last week to put my favorite candy bar in the freezer. Reese's anything is my absolute weakness: the cups, pieces, ice cream, fast break, whips, anything Reese's. So the candy, which was the cups, stayed in the freezer until last night when my husband had the sweet tooth and ate it.

    I think he wanted it more than you which was good for you. Perhaps he was thinking more of himself. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You can do it! Just don't bring it in the house and ask your husband to do the same. Be strong and have a lot of gum around to chew!

    I am really blessed. My husband is a candy-holic, but he hides it. Its in plain site, not hard to find but I find it very endearing that he trys.

You can do this. Pretend the freezer is hiding it from you. emoticon

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
