I wasn't hungry - I had lunch with an old friend today. We had a long conversation to catch up on stuff and some of the stuff I had experienced was painful and caused me great anxiety. Talking about it left its residue it seems. After we parted ways, I went to Trader Joes to buy some coffee and see if the peanut butter I had bought was a recalled jar. It wasn't they told me so happily off I went to buy my coffee. While on that isle, I perused the cookies, looking here looking there. Oh, this only has 1.5 grams of fat and you can eat 17 pieces and it's only 23 carbs, etc. On and on I went considering which I would buy.
And then it struck me-this is a trigger food-if I start to eat this ( mindless) food, I probably couldn't or wouldn't stop myself. I recently started SparkPeople and I'm very successful with this program so far. But, I don't do well with success, I have to mess with it.
I'm am so tired of messing with any and all accomplishments that it might be a sign!
I did not walk away with those cookies, I think that is a SIGN. I'm getting a little stronger.
