emoticon emoticon emoticon I have GOT to stop eating!

More importantly, I have got to stop having emoticon 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.

emoticon 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.

    Mine is booze, sometimes. Although, I had a glass of wine yesterday, and I swear the universe punished me by giving me a migraine that lasted two days. I also have some Frango chocolate, but I only eat it in extreme occasions. Have you tried Swiss Miss chocolate? It's not so high in calories or fat, and I swear the heat of the beverage makes you think you're full. I had a cup with dinner today because my calories were low (some dummy, got so caught up with work emails, she skipped breakfast. And the migraine didn't help.) It's not a bad chocolate substitute, and you can make it with water. Just a thought. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon I'm struggling along there with you!! Trigger foods in the house only lead to disaster. I know this, but I still do it sometimes anyway, and it's always bad!

    I love your plan to track. Sometimes, it helps me to break meals down into protein/ veggies/ starch, etc. It feels easier to track a cup of broccoli, a half cup of potatoes, and X oz of meat sometimes, rather than casseroles, etc that I might cook. I really do love Spark's recipie/ calorie calculator, and I've used it many times! Sometimes I just feel so lazy, though.

    I think having that trigger food out of the house is a great idea. Go for it!
