The past is past.

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

This blog is way overdue, but it's here now. I have come to the decision that I must make make one radical change in order to reach my ultimate goal. I have been eating well and healthily to get to the point I am at but I have have one weakness that is sabotaging my my is, to my shame, SWEETS. Not after dinner deserts, not biscuits or cakes, not chocolate bars or doughnuts, no, its proper SWEETS! At first it was a mini bag of Dolly Mixtures that were three for 1.00. I would buy the 3 give 1 each to my nephew and niece and eat the 3rd one myself. I still lost weight as this was well in control and occurred. about every 2 or 3 weeks. Well, you know what it's like, we tell ourselves " I can control this" and "I know what I'm doing." and before you know it you are back to your old ways. Well, that's what happened with me this weekend, I am ashamed to admit that over the past 5 days I have replaced 4 meals with bags of sweets! Huge bags! Bargain bags!

Now that is in the past, gone, unchangeable. I'm over it so I'll leave it there/ or here- whatever, it's done.

Today is a new day! it is very cold but the sun is shining, I am going to visit my sister who is celebrating her birthday today then I am going to take my friend's wife to visit him in hospital which is 40 miles away....they are just coming to terms with his recent diagnosis of inoperable cancer. It sort of puts things into perspective doesn't it? And here I am moaning about binging on sugar!

Anyway, that's the plan. I have no strategies in place for beating the sweetie cravings but I'll get by with a little help from my friends, oooo gonna try with a little help from my friends....yes reader you are probably correct in thinking "...she's lost the plot" , but in the whole scheme of things does it really matter? No, I think not! Blimey I'm going off on one.

I have to make contact with Sparkfriends whom I have neglected due to apathy. I will do this during the week, but I have to stop here or I will just carry on writing drivel.......

    For me it's Doritos and Diet Pepsi, which give me such a lovely full feeling... But the price isn't really worth it, of course.

    I know exactly how you feel. I too binge on stuff that isn't good but with me it is the big bags of chocolates (the ones you share) which are on offer in one of our supermarkets at the moment. Cadbury's Caramel Nibbles... mmmmm! No, I will not go there.

Be careful about cutting out sweets completely without having a back up plan. I found that I couldn't give up chocolate as when I did cave, I caved in style - 2 HUGE chocolate bars. Now I satisfy my craving by allowing myself a chocolate fix on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings and build it into the food plan.

Best of luck and congratulations on your achivements so far.

    Hi She

Sounds like positive action is afoot. I know I don't need to tell you that sweets don't solve a thing how ever many bags we eat-a great quick fix though, but only a short one.

You have done brilliant so far and are a great example to many and I know you are one very determined lady so you will kick the sweetie habit for sure. emoticon

Lotsa Luv Chris xxx

    I can relate. I was buying and eating a bag of chocolates and then buying a bag to replace it and, well on and on. Once I was diagnosed with diabetes I stopped that but was still craving something sweet. Now I try to have some protein and that has helped those cravings a bit but every once in a while I dream of baking something decadent. Baking was my hobby!

You can do it too!

    You've taken the first step & it's a huge one - admitting that the problem is there. Just take the rest one day at a time - one step at a time. I think you cna do it!!

    Sounds like a good plan! One step at a time. Turn down one bag of sweets at a time and soon it will become a habit, right? We just have to learn to say No. See, I said We. We are in this together. Just keep on fighting! (The urges)

    There first strategy for sweet cravings is to be able to say that the exist and it is a difficult challenge.
