Resisting temptation! Woo hoo !

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I walked into the dining room at work and was confronted with a major dilemma!

There they were , sitting in a bowl in the middle of the table!

SMALL Turkish Delights and Cherri Ripes!

2 of my most favourite chocolate/sweet items in the whole wide world!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

If I was not on this eating plan I would have had at least 4, if not more! and the fact that I went into the staff dining area several times over 2 days and did not touch one!

It was very hard, but the sensible sparkpeople voice spoke and said NO!

emoticon emoticon to my positive side of my brain !

It amazes me still that positive

thought can be so powerful! emoticon

So just hoping that this message gets out there!

It is possible!

Tell me , what have you resisted recently that makes you proud! emoticon

If I can resist , so can you. emoticon emoticon

    My resistance to any food has been almost non-existent the past few months. I should adopt a new philosophy and before I eat anything ask myself, "WWLD?" What would Libby do? Think that will work to get me back on track? emoticon -- Lou

    I really haven't had much resistance to anything for a while. Although, I haven't had much for temptation around the house. It's kind of good having control at what comes in the house.

Hope you are doing well.

    Not sure what those items are but they sound good! Congrats - I think you should automatically lose 5 pounds for passing them up. emoticon It truly does build character, in my opinion. Pat

    Well done. I am home and visitors brought me potato bread
and muffins and banana bread. I told them to take it all home
after we had coffee and they said no. My son is on a keto diet
and I have given up white carbs. I put everything in the freezer
and just knowing it is there is driving me crazy. That's my
exercise in WILLPOWER. I am glad you were strong and I am
taking your advice and resisting because of my good 'Spark
voice'.You are awesome Libby. That has given me more
encouragement to listen to my inner voice of reason.

    Way to go!!! I just started back on SP on Sunday. I have given up my Mt. Dew. Before, I was drinking an insane amount of soda. Now, I flood my body with water every chance I get. I won't leave the house without my ice water, b/c I know what'll happen if I don't. To deal with the sudden lack of caffeine, I have been drinking more coffee, but its better than all the carbs and empty calories that I was consuming.

    Well done, Libby!! That's great work and effort!

My resistance begins at the food store. If I can keep it out of the cart, it won't come home with me.

  I love chocolate especially white chocolate. I keep my chocolate in the freezer and have one tiny piece every day or two. I figure out of sight out of mind and I don't end up eating it all at once.
