I have GOT to stop eating!
More importantly, I have got to stop having
in the house. I cannot stop at just a square or two, or three, or well geez why not the whole bar of Chocolate Love at 477 calories.
Chocolate Love (the name brand of the dark chocolate that knows my Swan Song by heart) doesn't love me. It only loves the sound of the cash register when I buy it, but it doesn't give a hoot about me.
Chocolate Love has a companion, which sings the Swan Song of "You aren't quite full yet, how about something salty now to go with that sugar high you are about to feel."
I just cannot have that in my house any more. At least, not right now, not until I'm strong enough to say no and and have some discipline and mean it.
I have a pantry full of healthy food, that's not the problem. Its giving in to cravings that is the problem right now.
So this week's goal is to stay within my calorie range. I still have my other goals, but this is the main one I'm going to focus on. One day at a time. One meal or snack at a time. Just for today, I'm going to eat within my range, and I'm going to track every lick, nibble, and bite. If it means I have to spend 15 minutes uploading a recipe into Spark so I get an ACCURATE account, then I will do that.
I didn't even bother stepping on the scale today -- yesterday's view was enough. I'm not going to change my weight tracker until it begins to go down again.
I am stronger than any craving. This too shall pass.
