Yesterday was really rough, but I didn't eat the cake!

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

Eating right seems to be the BIGGEST issue I am having on my weight lost journey. I have always craved carbs, and it seems like the cravings have intensified by 10!! And I am not talking about the good carbs either....I want to eat comfort food. On yesterday I was craving this lemon coconut cake that my grandmother had made so bad that i just sat in my room and cried. I cried because I am tired of this on going battle with food that isn't good for my body. Adapting to this new lifestyle is very tough, but I need it. I need the self disciple, even if I have to cry....just as long as I don't give in...I'm good

    I think it will take our body time to catch up with our minds...until then, the cravings will be difficult but you passed the day at a time and hopefully, it will get easier!

    I am really sorry that you were crying, and your grandma's cake sounds good, and we all love the memories and comfort food. But with all that said I am very very proud of you, you may have cryied it out but you also didn't eat the cake! That is a big step, and like they say it takes 1 step at a time and you will get to were you are going! And you will get there emoticon

    Congrats on overcoming the temptation. That's a battle in itself to achieve.

    Even better, exercise in the moments of craving! Allow yourself a piece of cake but a small one and count it for your calories in the day. The rest of the day get in veggies, fruits, protein and dairy. Life is a balance and there is no need to cry over feeding our bodies properly. We don't need to deprive ourselves, just eat in portion. Do what your body needs and you will feel great. Drink lots of water, treat yourself once a day and count it, exercise and feel well!!
