Help Wanted: Discipline Needed

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Tonight I am feeling more positive about the weight loss. I am at my home and able to follow my eating plan. If and when I go see my sister in law is when I have problems with my calorie ranges. I really feel she is a sabotage in my life. She buys junk even when I tell her not to buy stuff I like. I have a real hard time when she does this and I go over when she has the extra sweet chocolates I love. I really try to watch myself but I end up failing. I have decided I would be better off steering clear of her house.

    Some family members just don't get it. I don't think they intentionally try to trip us up, but they think they are giving us a break and treat at the same time. I agree, go for a visit and take your own healthy snack. Tell her your allergic to the chocolates now...they make you break out in fat all over. Then laugh and say I really need your help by Not having them out when I come over. Hope this helps. Main thing is to do what You think will keep you on track.

    Hi there - how are you doing?

    The thing is... well, there will ALWAYS be chocolates in the world. Your goal needs to be getting to the point where you can CONTROL your response to triggers. It's tough stuff, I know. I try to create better responses by making rules. For me, it's things like pretzels and licorice. So I have made rules like "I don't eat licorice because it was one of the contributing factors to my obesity."

    You can get that food trigger under control - I'm certain of it.

    You are strong.
    Remember that.

    Make it a great day!

    Bring Your Own.....if you feel threatened by the TREATS she has waiting ...stand firm, say thanks but NO, I don't want that stuff anymore, I have my own. In fact, warn her ahead of time that you are bringing your own. Bring fruit.crudite.hot air popcorn...anything you can enjoy guilt free so that you won't feel deprived.
    You Can Do it

    Saboters gotta love them... are they not everywhere! You may have to have a conversation w her. Say that as long as she buys the junk that she is not helping you with your new lifestyle. you may have to make the choice to not go if she doesnt change her ways.
