say no and mean NO..................

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Woke up this morning and the sky is full of fog... when my oldest son was little he used to say that the clouds had not got up yet... It kind of feels like this. i am looking for something positive about it, as it is the kind of weather that goes straight to the chest and with the peak flows being bad at the moment i dont think i want to risk going out in it. Ahhh well chair dancing it is then.... but.... my flower on my fitbit does not grow to this emoticon .
Foodwise was difficult the other day as my daughter visited ( she is about a size six , and five foot if that..) She also brought a bag full of chocolate and tried to feed me malteasers. i had three and feel bad about it, although, previously i would have eaten more.
Its hard because even though , because i am trying to not become so obsessive that i never allow myself anything nice, i know as soon as i have one mouthful of choccy i want more and my body reacts horrid. She has agreed not to bring them anymore.... but i still feel guilty about it.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend all
emoticon i need to practice saying NO more even when my body wants to say yes.

    Hi. I really respect the intent of your blog about learning to say "no". My mom gave me a goodie bag for Valentine's Day and it had some vitamins in it but also lots of candy. She wants me to be successful in losing weight but she gave me candy of all things! I only ate one piece of chocolate and felt guilty about it until I remembered something a trainer at the gym told me, "It is about what you do 98% of the time that makes the difference". Three malteasers won't break you and how great it is that you stopped at 3 of them! Try not to feel so guilty. It is a negative emotion and does nothing for your mental well being. Keep sparking and hugs!

    I took my daughter to a friend's house to play. The parents only spoke Spanish and my Spanglish is not so good. I did to know how to say no to the homemade tamales and glass of hot sugar cinnamon milk so I ended up stuck. I did not want to insult their hospitality. Especially since I had no words to explain why I didn't want the food. The tamales rocked thank goodness ;-). I felt guilty too but sometimes having a treat with others is ok. You are not weak. You did better than I may have for sure!

    Hope you get rid of the guilt soon. Focus on the fact that you only ate a couple, and not so much like before. I think that is a huge accomplishment--one you should be proud of. Changes don't occur overnight, and change, when it does come, often comes in increments. You are definitely heading in the right direction, and should feel pride in that. Even when I fall of the wagon, I just get right back on it, and try again. Change, little by little for me, has resulted in a bigger overall change.

Sending many emoticon emoticon emoticon to you today!

    Actually, being able to eat a few of something seductive and then tolerate the desire emoticon to eat more without giving in is a very important skill for the long run. I can tell you from experience that even after three years of pretty good habits, I still sometimes want more of certain sweets. (other times, not so much) I have to use that skill. I limit the days I allow myself to make that kind of random choice to have something just because it's there. The rest of the time, I have only meals and no sweets. It's become relatively easy.

    Sometimes it's hard to say no, nor is necessary.
What we need to do is be able to say yes, find a balance and NOT beat ourselves up over it.
You had a few pieces of candy. It was enjoyable, you didn't eat it all. It is okay.
Now you are in control and you are back on track. That's how we need to look at it.
Not all or nothing.
Be kind to yourself.

    it is such a little word, but carries so much power. Practice saying it out loud when you are alone- get used to the sound of your voice saying it- be confident, expect respect when you say it..I'm glad you were able to talk with your daughter about the chocolate. glad she loves you enough to have listened. don't feel guilty, be thankful!

    I think that you're doing a terrific job of saying no. Keep up the great work, and you'll get there. One no at a time. I love chocolate too :)
