I have been going crazy, giving in to cravings. Well maybe just a little crazy as I have been eating healthy 50% of the time. I know that I should not make any foods "no foods" and I have been doing that. When I put foods on a "no list" I want them even more.
For the last week or so I have been eating my "no foods". I have had 2 or 3 small bags of chips every day and yesterday I had 6 mini candy bars and one regular size one. I shared a loaf of french bread with butter with my hubby. The day I ate the bread I ate little else. When I write it down it doesn't really look like I did much damage but to me it felt crazy.
My clothes still fit me the same but the scale says I have gained 3 pounds. Chips every day could have put on a water gain that would show on the scale. I have one small bag of chips and one bag of pretzels left in the pantry, the pretzels are going in the trash can right now. There that is done, I don't need all that salt in my diet, no one does. I am not making them "no foods" but if I want them I will get a little bag and not eat them every day.
I have come a long way losing 30 pounds and I don't want to put that all back on. I need to make wiser food choices and stick to them. Eating a little of my crave foods once a week is better than eating them every day. I need to take small portions and just one serving a week. I know I love these foods and putting them on a "no eat list" has gotten me in to this crazy frame of mind.
Today is a new day and I can make the choices that will make my life better. Today I want a hamburger. I don't have to have the fries that come with it I can say I just want the burger and stick to my guns. I will not be tempted by other foods. What I want is the burger not fries. Some other day I will order just the fries if that is what I am craving and share them with my hubby.
