Rough start to 2013!!! :(

Saturday, January 05, 2013

I had all the best hopes for 2013. My goals and game plan were in place. Boy did I have a rude awakening!!! And it is all because of a delicious snack that I got...sesame sticks. Sesame sticks for me are like crack to a druggie!! I ordered some on-line and then found some at a local Amish store. I was loaded down with the blasted things. The worst part was when I found out the serving size I was appalled, but did that stop me from eating cupfuls??? NO!!!! I couldn't help myself. The serving size was a measly 1/8th of a cup for 160 calories. Certainly not worth the calories to eat only 1/8th of a cup. As I said, I was eating probably a cup or more at a time!!!! My husband liked them but he wasn't eating them fast enough :( I finally told him to hide them or throw them away. He didn't hide them and didn't want to throw them away so I continued to eat them until they were gone. They weren't gone until Friday evening. So I have over-indulged for days upon days since the 1st of the year. The second worst part was that I had other healthier, better choices for snacks available. Those sesame sticks just called my name every afternoon/evening. I had the Special K Cracker chips snack packs for 90 calories and they are wonderful...crunchy, lightly salted. A great snack when you need a crunch. Did I got for them? No. I was drawn back to the sesame sticks bag. So, now they are gone. Finally there will be peace in the house for me. Now I can get back on my plan. There is light at the end of the tunnel. I have found another trigger food that I just cannot buy any longer. I cannot have them in the house. Glad there is a lot more time to 2013. Now I can start over and do my best, work hard and work towards my goals.

    I am with JOANOFSPARK. That was just a glitch in your plan and now you will get on with the good stuff. I have things that trigger me also but knowing I have a pre-canceous Esphagus that has helped me concer some of it. I also love M&Ms but know if I eat I will be sick in the night. So at least the brain is saying you no better, move on. emoticon

    The key is learning what works for you. Eat in balance and include some snacks that you really like in your diet. Abstinence from all the yummy treats that a person likes will eventually cause a binge.

    I finally found the last of the cookies and candy from "well wishing" relatives. The only way to dispose of them was to eat them. A burial at sea "in the garbage can" seemed improper so I sang taps and chomped them down.
Am now in a sugar crash. How can something so yummy make you feel like crap and ready to eat more? I imagine this is how drug dealers work.

    WOW, AND I STILL HAVE HALF A TIN OF POPCORN AND HALF A BOX OF CHOCOLATES. I'M TELLING MYSELF IF I JUST EAT A LITTLE EACH DAY IT WON'T BE BAD. BUT FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER COUNTED CALORIES IT TURNS OUT THAT IS A BIT MORE THAN I SHOULD CHEW. I'M 8 HOURS INTO A 12 HOUR SHIFT, MAYBE I'M NOT AS FUNNY AS I THINK. GOOD LUCK I AM RIGHT THERE WITH YOU. emoticon

    Lesson definitely learned. There are just certain things that cannot be kept in the house!

HUGS and time to move on . . . right!?! HUGS

    you learned your lesson, now move on. You'll be fine, a few sesame sticks never killed anyone (to my knowledge). If you love the flavor (like I do) try sprinkling sesame seeds on salads for a little pop of sesame-goodness.

    It is true that we do not have to give up certain foods UNLESS they lead us to a binge. It is still a great year ahead of you have learned something valuable!

    emoticon It was just a minor glitch in your plan for 2013. now you know that it is a trigger food, so it is over and done with....right? *grin* I too have trigger foods, namely M&M peanuts....but the trouble is, both my husband and my son love them as well........uh oh.....just realized that there is a snack box in my file cabinet.....that's our snack supply cabinet....and actually I've not touched it for two whole days......of course, it was also because I had forgotten it....*gulp* bet it does not stay forgotten...anyway, you can do this......you have everything in place and you have a good start on the year ahead.......don't let this get you down, for it really is just a minor glitch........ emoticon emoticon emoticon
