WHY I CAN'T STOP NOW

Friday, November 02, 2012

121 days ago I went on a no dessert streak.

Why emoticon

Because my dessert eating was out of control. I couldn't have just one, I couldn't have just one portion; I had to have the whole thing.

Now I can't stop. emoticon what?, stop eating. No I can't emoticon
the streak.

One reason after so long I no longer wanted dessert. I can sit beside desserts and I am not tempted.

Another reason is because of the quote by Robert E Lee.

"You must be careful how you walk, and where you go, for there are those following you who will set their feet where yours are set." permalink Robert Edward Lee

I don't know how many people I have influenced on going on the no dessert streak.

emoticon and think. What does sugar do FOR your body.
What does sugar do TO your body.

Two different things.

Let's continue the streak. Don't become a sugarholic.

    emoticon for setting the example. Even though its only been a few days I have exercised at least 10 minutes since I started this streak. Most days I actually get over 30 minutes.

  That's quite an accomplishment!

I wonder if it's like smoking, if one can have a small piece at the holidays, or it makes one want to go back to the previous habits. Just thinking.... emoticon

    emoticon Irene, Great job!
I don't eat a lot of desserts, but have other things that I can streak on.

Love the quote by Robert, E. Lee. You know I have mentioned setting an example, and this puts it perfectly.

Keep up the good work and thank you for setting a good example. emoticon

Irene, you are an excellent example of what we can do if we just put our mind to it. Your body loves you for going on the streak.

    I am proud of you Irene.
You have been doing excellent.
I did not do the streak because I am not much of a dessert eater, never have been, but I know you have made people think about their sugar addiction.
I do enjoy celebrating with family for a birthday, I usually have a small piece of cake.

Hugs Mary

    Irene, you have influenced me to go on a 'no dessert' streak and today is my one month day without any desserts! Thank you!
I, too, lost control over desserts and could not stop at one . . so it was best for me to give up these sugary concoctions. I do believe in moderation in all things but if something tempts me badly, it's best for me not to have it in the house!
Way to go on your streak, you have inspired many of us to follow you!
