I am my biggest food saboteur...

Monday, January 28, 2013

For some people it is others who tempts them to go down that slippery food path.

For me, its me, myself and I--plain and simple.

If I want to BE a healthy living person, I need to BEhave in ways ensure I am successful. Do things like:

--plan ahead. I am human and WILL want to indulge every now and then--bank calories so I can safely do that.

--plan ahead. If I know I want to say "No thank you" I need to have my line and smile ready so I can be firm, but cordial.

--plan ahead. If I know I have a trigger food (for me it is cheese and cakey sweets) I need to keep them out when I know I cannot have them. "To thine own self be true..."

Is someone else your biggest food saboteur, or might it be you yourself? I don't know the answer to that. Only you do...

    I don't know if it will work for you, but I finally prayed to God for help. It helped.

    You're so right. For me it's home made bread. i baked some today, and it's calling out to me.

    I don't know why it is so easy to tell others no but yet I cannot tell myself that. My problem is sweets. And unfortunately I've had to do some baking for church and it's been hard to keep myself from tasting or having just one.

    I've decided the easiest thing for me right now is to say no to church baking for awhile.

    I am my worst enemy!!!

    Planning your food is absolutely necessary- when I am not eating junk- I look forward to yogurt or ants on a log (lol) or frozen fruit which is my favorite. Everytime in the past I have been successful- I planned my food out- then I got lazy and didn't want to bother. In the end it is a small thing to do to be healthy.

    I eat forbidden foods too. Being in a family with teenagers, there are snacky things around and I sometimes indulge. Right now, there is angel food cake. Cakey, but not fatty...and very tasty!

    Oh yes, I have no one to blame but myself.

    Hello, Soul Sister! Don't put me in line in front of the chips and dips, or cheese and crackers. Don't open up a bag of Dunkin Donuts. Please.

    I have no problem saying no - to others. But I'm mindless when it comes to myself. Nobody can convince me to do something I don't want to do. I am mindless.

    I like that. Plan ahead. BEFORE you get hungry. I've started logging my food first thing in the morning - BEFORE I actually sit down and eat. Because if I eat without thinking, I eat like a moron.

    I am the same way. I need to work on this.
