Conversation with Myself
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
Myself: I don't know why I keep doing it to myself. I go along great - am at the halfway mark to my goal - blow it all for no reason!
Me: You haven't blown it all. It is a temporary setback.
Myself: I know what I am supposed to do and then I do something stupid like I did tonight - went to the store and consciously bought Little Debbie Nutty Bars and a box of cookies and Debbi cakes. I have already downed part of the cookies and two servings of Little Debbie Nutty Bars.
Me: Look at the bright side. You didn't down the whole box and you know you will have to account for it later. Just put those boxes away. Think about tomorrow and how you will lower your calorie intake to compensate for what you did tonight. It is not the end of the world and you haven't destroyed what you have already accomplished!! It is a temporary setback.
Myself: I am glad you understand me so well and that you don't get mad at me. I know the right things to do and I will do them. After all, the girls at TOPS have been cheering me on and helping me get to where I am now. And all those Spark Members - I don't want to let them down. But most important of all - I don't want to let myself down.
