rewards system, and M&Ms damage control

Sunday, February 09, 2014

I feel so good today. I just finished cleaning, and as much as I hate to do it, I always feel better when my environment is clean.

Anyways, I finally decided on a "rewards" system. I'm never good at rewards, because really there's not much I want. And when I do want something, I have a hard time talking myself out if getting it. Well... there's something that I want that I can't talk myself into... Medifast. I want it back so bad, but I can't convince myself that I'm ready, and that I won't gain all my weight back when I'm done with the program. I finally came up with a solution that has me excited... right now my weight watchers points to lose are what they will be at my goal weight to maintain. So, if I can prove that I can stay within my points for 1 month, I will let myself do Medifast. Once I am able to do that, I feel I will be prepared to maintain any losses I makeon Medifast. If I'm not able to do it, then I 'm not ready, and i keep trying until I am ready. And it has nothing to do with weight loss... in fact, I'm not going to weigh myself the whole month. I don't care what I lose. This is me proving my will power to myself. Hopefully it'll work.

Also, there's another thing I'm trying. We keep party size bags of M&Ms around the house. I can't get rid of them, because they're hubby's treat... or they're supposed to be. I have a hard time keeping my hands out of them. I've decided that everyday I'm going to portion out one serving to have during the day, and automatically count points for the serving. Once that servings gone, it's gone, so i have to have it when cravings hit hardest. Today's my first day trying this and i was surprised at how small a serving is! It doesn't seem worth it, but I've tried cutting them out completely and that didn't work, so for now I'm at least going to try this and see how it goes. I can see how it's possible to double the amount of points I eat in a day with M&Ms!

    M&Ms is the one chocolate I can control --- go figure! I keep them on hand b/c hubby will have them now and then and when the kids are here, they enjoy them too. I like them, but can handle them --- I have 1/8 of a cup when I do decide to have them for a treat and if I refuse to chew them, they last me a long time! I don't know how this is possible, b/c I do love chocolate and there are many other chocolates that I can't handle at all -- but these work for me. Hopefully you will find that the serving will work for you too - I find there's a lot of chocolate satisfaction in these little tiny candies that melt in your mouth, but not in your hand --- just like the old commercials would say!

Enjoy your serving of M&Ms and have a strong will powered month!!
