How many of you think you need a splurge day? I myself could never. In the past I have had those splurge days, and I came to a complete halt to the plan I was following. I went on a total binge and never returned.
Most of us cannot control it. A little bite here or a little bit there, and it led to big bag of whatever and a great big soda, or milk to wash it all down. That was me (not the soda, never a fan but I did love my milk) And of course if one had to have chips, you always accompanied it with the dip.
Well it never worked for me. If I had a bag of Hersheys kisses or several power bars or anything of multiples, they were eaten all at the same time. I could never dole out one a day,
Ha, that is even funny to imagine me doling anything in a one at a time effort. It's like that apple hanging over the horses head, to get him moving to try to catch it. You put it in front of me and it's gone, and not put away but eaten. I would have broken my neck trying to get that danged apple (sugar in my case)
I admire those of you who can control, and not bring on the binge, but I myself feel that it's just a precursor to eating out of control, when you have any sweets or chips or whatever smokes your shorts laying around, you can almost say good bye to whatever you are doing to work on your health.
If we restrict these things whether it be sugar, cheeses, pastas, chips. We are doing it for the fact, we are not strong enough to resist them, if they are around for our "Splurge days"
It becomes "Splurge weeks, months"
I fell off that wagon, multiple times. It's time for me to put a gate on "That wagon"
I know it sounds very restrictive, but could you do it?
The key word here is "Cheat" but only yourself, it doesn't involve anyone else. For me it's a lifetime commitment, because I choose health over splurges that will plummet me into a no bottom well.
I have declined a lot of social events, because no one understands and "Why can't you have a little of it"? I can't I would want it all.
I hope this changes soon, when I get where I want to be, and people won't think of tempting me, when they see what I am doing is beneficial to me. And maybe they will get on the wagon, and close the gate.
