I made it through day 2 with only the previously mentioned slip up of Nut Thins. I even made it through a trip to Wal-Mart without buying any junk! I left with exactly what I came in for, well and some sardines too. But the point is that I didn't buy any junk!!! The chips and crackers were calling my name, but I had pumpkin seeds in the car. Being prepared really helps!
And that little note I wrote to myself has been a big help too. As soon as I open the car door and see the note on my seat I feel strengthened and encouraged to keep pushing past my cravings. Today I felt a bit like Gandalf the White when he is releasing Theoden from Saruman..."You did not kill me, you will not kill him." Or like Harry Potter when he realized he could conjure a patronus because he'd seen himself do it before. (Yes, I am a nerd.) When I see that note in my car, I remember that I didn't fail yesterday and know that I don't have to fail today.
I feel good. I hope you all do as well. :)
