Or more importantly, how will I respond?!!! That's the real question.
This is our 4th year visiting this place. We love it here..except...it is the devil's den for me. Dh loves to eat out. I get bored...at loose ends... and I snack.
Dh & I bike, but not with enough exertion or miles to burn enough calories. It's the best he can do & I'm glad we can bike together after lots of health issues for him.
I'm too embarrassed to share all the details of the ridiculous "snacking'' I've done here. And the pounds I've gained here....only to spend the rest of the year losing them...year after year. The first year involved hidden bags of Hershey's kisses which I consumed....secretly. Each year it was a different temptation.-- all resulting in weight gain and months of losing those same, silly pounds.. .again..again...again.
I have a special event in July for which I'd like to wear a stunning new dress. I don't want to gain weight this time. In fact, I want to lose.
It will require tremendous self control when we eat out so frequently. It will require serious...I will mean Serious Dedication to exercise which will interfere with others' plans and desires and will be labeled "obsessing about weight." I'm a people pleaser...it's hard for me to take a stand and inconvenience others.
Today's temptation:After 62 minutes of hard exercise, we came to the condo, which has been redecorated. New furniture, TV, bedding...very nice. And on the counter top, a huge 6" Hershey's kiss-shaped container holding 10 kisses. sigh. I ate 2, hid the container in a drawer and have been dying to eat them. Tomorrow they go in the trash and the container REMAINS in the drawer...out of sight, out of mind.
Tomorrow is March 2, Day 2. It's the only day I have to worry about all day tomorrow. Future days are not a concern....I just have to do tomorrow correctly. That's all. One day. That's how I'll respond.
