Day 18... Demons!

Friday, January 25, 2013

Yesterday was not my best day eating wise. I went over on calories by dinner time. But I didn't stop eating then, even though I was full.

Those demons we call hormones were out in full force last night. After dinner, I ate a Skinny Cow Ice Cream sandwich thinking that would shut the demons up. Wrong answer!!! It spurred them on. Even though I knew it was wrong, I ate 2 whole Snickers bars after that. Ugh!

Stupid hormones! It was like once I fed them that little bit they went on a rampage. I've been working on reading You on a Diet by Dr. Oz. He said something like that would happen, talking about the vicious cycle of eating to feel better, then feeling worse and needing more junk to feel better again.

Ah well! The past is the past and today is a new day. I won't give an inch to those little demons today. Sneaky buggers that they are, they will try to find another in today. Not happening!

    Yep! You've got it right. Hang in there. The only way that the demons (big or small) can win is if you quit trying to change. Bit by bit those voices get quieter. It's taking me years to get it right, but I don't do all of the same eating behaviors that I used to. I'm learning how to fulfill the real needs that I have without turning to food. emoticon

    Yes, sneaky buggers that they are, is for sure. We all have to deal with them and that's why we're here. So that's why I can help you! Just try to forget about yesterday and start over. It doesn't matter how many times we have to start over, just as long as we do! Also, sugar really is my problem child! I truly believe that the more I eat, the more I crave! The same as posta, popcorn with butter, by the way!! So many of those simple carbs, that's why I try to stay away from them, but we can't always do that. And hormones are such a culprit for that! We have to be stronger most of the time because there are times that we can't be strong at all, so the stronger times make up for the difference. I like to remember too that if I can have the majority of my days to be good ones, then I'm doing it and I will lose!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
