SparkPoints can I do this???

Thursday, January 06, 2011

I am having a hard time. I am tempted soooo much. Even by my own kids. How can I break habits and not give in when it's right in my face?? Soda in the fridge because hubby "WANTS" his soda, and I don't want to deprive him of what he wants.

Today my kids had no school it was a snow day. My son, who is 13 nagged and nagged about using his $10 to buy lunch. It didn't seem to matter what I said it was a total battle of wills. So I finally gave in with making an excuse of,'s my daughter's 17th birthday and I am sure she would like it. Off to Wendys we go. Along the way I told all of my kids......I NEED YOUR SUPPORT I CAN'T DO THIS ALONE!!!!

I think maybe they are more understanding now. I told them if "WE" don't treat are bodies good now, they will not treat us good later, and that it's hard for me to loose wait and be healthy when I see them eating things I enjoy and am trying to change. I also told them that there is things I want to do and can't because of my weight and it makes me sad.

So How, how do I go to Basketball games without Nachos, and the mall with out eating the junk. I try sometimes just to fall flat and feel like it's not worth trying. When will I be able to say NOPE I don't want that crap??

Is it all in my head?? I hate giving in!! Maybe this vent will help me feel beter!!

    Soda and Coffe for me as always been something that was hard togive up.About 2 weeks ago I made the decision to not have soda/coffee until March 1st. I was doign good untill earlier this week when I had half a can. Wemust remember that we are human and wil slip and that if continend to deprive ourselves then we will give in more. If you slip enjoy it but pick yourslef up and keep moving.As for fast food eat, u can still hae it but pick things that are better for you. Good luck

    When I was young my Mom did Weight Watchers. She made one dinner and we all ate the same thing. Remember this is a life style change not a diet. Make fast food a "treat" not a standard. As for eating at events, either eat before you go or make that your "treat." Make changes to your other meals to allow for the one splurge. As VANSMOM said, you can do it.

    I am the same way!
    I am a "food associator" too:
    Going to my dad's house = stop at Popeye's
    Disneyland= churros, turkey leg (must have or not the same)
    Etc, etc, etc...

    I think that for myself, it is going to be a battle at first, but then I will hopefully think, "Well, that churro would be delicious, but wouldn't you rather fit in the seat on CA Screamin'?

    I am trying to be better about taking my water bottle EVERYWHERE so that I can have something to help with the hunger and will remind me of the changes that I am making. I am also going to be making better choices when I do have to go to Popeye's (or Wendy's in your case)

    I try to remember the saying "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels". I haven't been thin since I was a kid so this is kind of abstract, but I have a good imagination... :0)

    We can do this!
