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 dream...it 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.......
