how i feel when i eat peanut m&m's

Friday, June 08, 2012

or any candy, for that matter.

i'm hoping to write this blog then remember to refer to it when sugar/chocolate/candy cravings occur. the only cravings i've really dealt with throughout my pregnancy are sugar. which is very odd. i don't usually crave stuff like that unless i'm pms'ing.

i'm trying to control the cravings cause lots of sugar can't be good for the baby, right? so after this bag i'm done! hopefully those aren't famous last words.

anyway, this morning i stopped and got a pack of m&m's on my way to work. now i'm eating them. not cause i'm hungry, but because i know they were in the drawer waiting for me to eat them. their crunchy shell, chocolatly middle mixed with a peanut were just calling my name. so i'm sitting here eating the whole bag. one or two would have been enough, but i can't let the bag just sit there uneaten. and they aren't that good! they are good while i'm eating them. very tasty. but when i'm done? i'll take a drink of water and forget all about them. except the damage has been done. the sugar is in me. the fat is floating around looking for a place to deposit itself. and what do i have to show for all this? nothing. a dollar poorer and 1/10 of a lb heavier. why do i keep eating junk food? it's not doing me any good and i'm getting nothing out of it. so stop! don't buy the candy. let someone else eat the ice cream. i just need to ignore the craving. i know if i can get passed it i will be fine. but if i cave in, i'll feel guilty and have just a moment of gratification.

i must focus on this and move on to healthier choices.

    M&MS are definitely one of my comfort foods! I don't eat them because I'm hungry, I just eat them because I want to. I have to keep them out of the house because it they are there, they will be eaten, lol!

    I agree with punkin track it and move on...if you are denying yourself ---it will be harder for you to stick with the program in the long run.. a diet denies ...a life change means within healthy limits... gl you can do this... emoticon emoticon

    Hey, at least you go for the m&m's with the protein! Good Job!!!! ;)

    M&Ms are not gonna break you. As long as you track them and stay in your ranges, they are perfectly acceptable!!! Don't be so hard on yourself, but it might be a good idea to find something else to sooth the sweet tooth! I am working on this myself. Maybe grab some chocolate almond milk... I love that stuff!!!!!

    Hey, don't sweat it! When I gave birth to my third son, all I ate for 3 months was peanut M+M's. I'm not kidding. I would go to Costco and buy those 5 lb bags and literally that is all I ate. Maybe it was because I had 3 kids under the age of 3. Maybe because my husband traveled 2 weeks out of every month. Maybe because I was working full time. Maybe I was stressed. Whatever. Those M+M's had a purpose and they helped me survive. That was a long time ago, and things now are great. So know that, for now, they had a purpose. Tomorrow you will make different, better choices. Guilt serves no purpose, but, looking at life's gifts does. So onward Girlfriend. HUGS!
