Halloween Trouble

Thursday, November 01, 2007

I was surrounded by candy all night - every kind you could think of. I did ok, until I got home. Then came the temptation of Reese's peanut butter cups. These things are evil. If I was buying candy to give out I would get things I hate, like almond joys (I wouldn't touch those things for anything (well, I might be able to stomach one for a million dollars - I'd try anyway). The point is - I hate them, no temptation. I don't know exactly how much damage I did, but I know I went well past the 2,000 cal mark yesterday. I've decided today is a new day though, and I am tracking all and staying away from the candy. Next landmine - Thanksgiving. Bring it on!

    Hahahahaha!!! I too had so much temptation during Halloween....I, for the first time in 8 1/2 months reverted back to my ugly old habits of binging on chocolate. Prior to Halloween, I actually had to go out and buy more mini chocolate bars to replace the far too many I had eaten each evening for several days straight. I was SHOCKED that I still had that in me!!! I was on a rollercoaster of cravings and couldn't get myself off. I also for the first time in almost a year, began to crave heavy, fattening meals. A bunch of girlfriends and I began to analyse these cravings and all decided it was mostly due to the combination of the onset of the cold weather (an animal instinct to put on extra fat for the winter moths) and each of us losing in excess of 50 pounds of insulation since last Fall/Winter. My cravings and eating foods that I should not have, lasted two entire weeks until I had to get tough with myself and ended it. It proved one very critical thing to me.....my binging habits still lie deep down inside me and can crop up ANYTIME and ANYWHERE, so I can't be so smug as to think I won't have struggles now and again....but I also proved to myself that I can overcome those lapses in my new lifestyle and just need to push them back and get back on track.....life is too important to just lie down and give up!!!
    Keep on with your successes!!! Hope to hear from you!
