Disaster Averted!

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

It has been a crazy week, and it seems to be continuing in the same pattern this week. I wake up each morning wondering what will break today. However, I determined to stay with healthy eating-because that is something I can control. I was good all day-made excellent choices-until my dinner. Actually, it was after dinner-I felt the need through an aggravating situation to raid the refrigerator and the pantry! After my second dessert,though, I came to my senses and realized I HAVE TO STOP. Why should hard work and determination be derailed by senseless eating? I am very thankful that I did not continue- a small victory to celebrate. Those of you who also struggle with emotional eating-celebrate your small victories! They work much better than 3000 mindless calories.

    See that is so me...I can do so well all day but then the after dinner munchie monster takes over. UGH!! So I try to keep snacks to a minimum & try to drink more juice or water.

God bless,

Dee

    I THINK I READ SOMEWHERE THAT THE ONLY THING FOOD SOLVES IS HUNGER.

    Good for you for realizing what you were doing. You didn't let it continue, you stopped! Great idea on counting the small victories first, I'll try that in the future.

    Agree with Pennypacker3 I made a safe zone and moved out all food I wouldn't nutritionally be happy if I stuffed my face with them. Some "company food" I moved to a special spot downstairs so it is out of sight.

Good job stepping back on the path.

    This is what I did. Take ALL dessert foods, snacks, sugary foods, peanut butter and throw it in the trash can outside and don't buy any more.
Any unopened boxed / bagged non perishibles that are salty and bad donate to a Church food pantry.
