Stopped the binge before it started

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

So relieved! I didn't give in! I had an emotional trigger that would have usually sent me straight for the sugar. I stopped myself before I did and went and filled the bath tub. I stayed in the tub and read a book until it passed. Granted, the water was past luke warm and nearly cold by the time I had gained control over myself but the thing is that I did. I got out and made the healthy dinner I had planned on earlier in the day. Now it is nearing bed time and I am feeling good instead of beating myself up. I know that it was only one victory, but it is also one less slip up which in my book feels like double points.

    Great job!!! Now you have one way that you know works for you when you're stressed. Write it down somewhere visible so you'll be more likely to do it again if you have that urge again.

Keep up the good work! emoticon
