BLC 20 plan for the holidays
Monday, December 03, 2012
I have really mixed emotions about this. I know I have a definite problem with sweets. Yet to totally eliminate them does not seem to be a solution. Because if I break over and have one, it will be look out!! I won't stop until I have eaten the whole batch. Then I'll probably make more!
I have discussed this issue with a dietician, family, and friends. Most think that total avoidance of sweets is not the answer. So how do I do moderation? How do I stop at just one or two? I have no idea, obviously, or it wouldn't be a problem. I know I can lighten them up and make them healthier. But it is still a problem of stopping with just a serving. That has always been an issue.
The only idea I have come up with is to allow myself a treat each day. But only one with the idea, "you can have more tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that". Maybe that will eliminate the "fear" that leads to gobbling down every bite. It is like I treat it as "the last supper" and shove in everything possible.
I know if I would be sure to exercise every day it would also help. And perhaps vamp up the exercise.
That is the best solution I can come up with. If any of you out there have any ideas or suggestions, I will gladly hear them. I need all the help that I can get.
