That Unspeakable Addiction!!

Monday, November 04, 2013

We discussed what motivates me. So now we will look at what demotivates me. That one is easy to answer. I am a food addict. Just talk about some kind of food, smell it, see it, think about it and I am lost!! I read a lot and when they start describing what they are eating I start to salivate.
There are also those around me who will say "oh just forget it for today and enjoy this lovely meal". I know that is wrong and yet my weakness is stronger than my strength. But I am working on it. Trying to substitute whenever possible, something yummy and healthy for something that is yummy and not so healthy.

    I so fight that battle every day. They guys made a birthday cake for me. NO frosting at my request and with egg whites instead of whole eggs. I cut it into pieces that are allowable and figured the calories for it. Then packaged them in little ziplock bags and promptly froze them.. Not before I had two of the pieces. I can slide around most things and make the trade outs my sweets of any kind just make me go crazy and want them so bad. I have to make sure they aren't around Which is fairly easy with 2 male critters in house. but I like coconut so my cake had coconut in it... So it will be hanging out. But it is now put away so I don't eat it all right now.. emoticon

    Every day is a new day. There will be successful days and unsuccessful days -- but we will never give up!

    It is really is hard not to eat the wrong things. Keeping busy is the best way that I have found besides not keeping unhealthy foods where I can easily get to them. It is still something we have to continually deal with......and it is not EASY to always deal with it. Good luck Arlene, just do the best you can each and every day. If you have a bad day, then you get to have a Fresh Start.......always remember that. emoticon and emoticon . Together emoticon emoticon
