I Am Ashamed of Myself

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

I am really ashamed of what I did this morning. I saw a really good cookie that DH had taken a bite out of and threw in the garbage. The cookie was still in the box, so it hadn't touched anything, but what was I thinking?????? Would I have done that for a piece of meat, a vegetable a piece of fruit? Heck no! I am so ashamed of myself. I have been eating cookies like crazy. The trouble and I have realized this is, once I start eating sweets, my brain is like it's on drugs, I can't stop. Have to munch on more fruit or frozen grapes. Well, Merry Christmas to all my Spark friends. Going to my sister's and Christmas Eve Mass. emoticon

    I'm always torn when I hear of any food being thrown away.

    I know we are counting calories, and trigger foods are bad for us too.

    But you can get back on track and continue on. Many of us gain in December with all the luscious foods around us. The ones that do not give in, good for them, and us, well we will behave shortly. I kept my cookies in the freezer, gave most away but kept a few gingerbread ones for my present today. I only make them once a year.

    I know you wanted to fess up on the blog, more than I do, I track and add weight to my scale on the page but rarely admit what I ate to get there!

    Nope nope nope. Let go of the shame friend. Shame feels like a great way to make yourself "straighten up" - but it just leads to more cookies and the like.

    It's okay. You don't like the choice that you made. That's all it was. Just 1 choice. Ask yourself - what's going on that's amping up your sugar-lust ... for me it can be stress, or loneliness, or uncertainty, ... all things I can really DO something about - but if I don't pay attention - leads to cheese (my weakness) ... point is ... it's okay - use it as motivation to figure out what's going on.

    Hang in there!
    Wishing you and yours a fantastic Christmas!
