Food....it's not the enemy. I have always thought this and continue to tell others this yet when I see that delicious sweet/salty treat I get on the defensive. I think it is out to get me and ruin my efforts but that is not so. Yesterday I think I made a breathrough with my irrational side. I took a friend to subway and they brought out two cookies to share with me. At first I was hesitant saying "just by looking at that I gained 5 lbs!" " If I have one I will eat more and won't be able to stop". I was then reminded that I am stronger than that and if I looked at my life the way I do work (persistant/stubborn) I can have my cake and eat it too. So...i took a bite....then another and do you know what? It tasted phenomenal and I was able to save half of it and take it home to my sister!! Have I just made a minor victory? I count that as a yes! I know food is not the enemy and everything in moderation. I have increased my exercise and instead of driving places I walk, always take the stairs and park further away at stores so that half a cookie doesn't scare me! I am happy to say that I am not a hypocrite anymore....I am happy to say that I can control myself and am stronger than I realized. Thank you for helping me believe in myself the way I believe in all of you!
