5% Winter Challenge - Assignment 4

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Today's assignment was to determine our trigger foods and our strategy to avoid them.

My trigger foods are basically sweets and salty sweets mostly.

My only strategy to avoid them is to plan ahead and stay focused. I have a much harder time now that I am married because my husband is always wanting snacks too. His snack of choice is ice cream and, unfortunately, even though I didn't really like ice cream when I met him, I now find myself eating it.

I have come a long way over the years and I know that I can overcome this in the same way I have overcome so many other not so healthy food choices and that is by total avoidance and staying strong. I'm hoping this is the time I will stand strong on my choice and that choice is to reach my goals.

  Yes I too am starting to believe that avoidance may be the only way forward, For me, a little is never enough, So the only way I seem to control my cravings and urges is to not start at all. I stopped buying any treats for the house when I do food shopping 2 weeks ago, and this seems to help alot!. If its not in the house then I cant eat it lol.x

    Yup, me too. Avoid the treats or I'm in trouble. No one little bite for me- it's all or nothing. So I choose NOTHING !!!! See you soon, Barbie!!!!

    I agree with avoidance. I make rules that work well for me. When I joined the local church and saw the pastries, etc. put out with coffee I knew I would make it a habit if I had that first bite. So I never eat there, just sip coffee and chat.

I know you can do it!
