Dearest Spark Friends,

This has been a crazy week for me seeing I have these three people living in my body at the same, not so funny.

Like the old movie starring Joanne Woodward "The Three Faces of Eve" I watched the part of me with all this good info from spark and gathered through my life guide me through the diet do's and don't. emoticon The attentive one of me followed through, shopping, preparing and attempting to be 100% spot on. emoticon The rebellious one of me argued, debated, made excuses, upset the other two of me when confronted with a crisis this past week proceeded to play the old tapes inside of me and I beguiled and succumbed to eating some carbs when I should have had none. emoticon

I reinstate my resolve this week to attempt to destroy or at least put into a cage the rebellious side of me who is driving me to INSANITY. That is doing the same thing and expecting different results. So here I go again fighting my own demon and hoping someday that rebellious little child in me realizes she is killing herself. emoticon

Will keep you posted.

Love and Support to all of my Spark Family emoticon emoticon

Yvonne emoticon

    Yvonne, Changing our eating habits is hard for almost everyone. . .and I know in your heart you want to switch it up so you'll feel better. . .I had a really hard time getting through the first Phase of SB. I did slip up a couple of times but got right back on it. Somehow I made it through and did lose 8 excess pounds. If this First Phase is too difficult maybe you should start with Phase 2 which isn't as strict and the food choices are larger. Just an idea, as you'd still be eating less carbs, sugar and fat so if you figure out it's doable just jump into Phase 2 first. I know you can do it and I'll be here ready to encourage you. Take one meal at a time and be sure to have tons of sugar free Jello on hand (also try the Ricotta Cheese Dessert) emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon as if it wasn't for eating that all day long I know I would have never made it as I have a big sweet tooth.

Hugs & Love,

    I bet you get it figured out and deal with it, Yvonne. I'm sure there are many of us right there with you. When you get yours tamed, please and do something about mine! LOL! Hugs, Jeannie

    LOL - I know what you mean Yvonne. I sometimes feel the same way. Though if the rebellious child is in your arena ... talk to her and see what she wants. Something is trying to get your attention. Happens to me as well... Good for you! I support you in continuing your healthy journey!

    Lol...I so enjoyed reading your blog.
I never thought of it that way.
I will from now on. Mine is a she devil.
Make sure you have a good key for the cage.
You take care.

    Ha! I can so very well relate to this...

Currently I am rationing out a package of Pretzel M&M's, 4 at a time... (If my boy were home, he'd have taken care of that temptation for me ;-)

    LOL! I totally know what you mean! I feed my inner child a tidbit of her favorites when she whines, but she's learned that 4 M&M's a day is all she'll EVER get. I had a heart-to-heart with her some time back and explained that feeding HER junk food made ME feel crappy, and then I don't treat ANYONE nicely, not even her. So, Inner Child mostly plays nicely these days. Good luck to all three of you!

(I switched the middle one to a big grin face. The halo made me think too much of deprivation!)
