Okay people I know you are out there! I am going to get really tired of listening to myself! Naners? Briarrose? Where are you?????
Today I had a silly victory I wanted to share but I'm not sure if I am sharing it with anyone but myself! I will take a chance someone is reading and share it anyways. Only people who struggle with weight can appreciate what I did and I need to tell someone!!
Today at our staff meeting another nurse brought in a big bag of vanilla flavored tootsie rolls. I LOVE vanilla flavored tootsie rolls! Probably as much as anything on earth. My instant reaction was oh crap. Since I came back from Chicago in March and completely changed my eating habits (long story) I have eaten clean for almost four weeks. I allow myself one sweet a day and have never broken that. Sweets are my vice. I wanted those toosie rolls so bad I was practically salivating. Then I thought "you can do this. You have for four weeks. You can eat some and they will be your sweet for the day". So I read the calories, decided I didn't want to waste 140 calories on six tootsie rolls and ate only three. I completely ignored them the last fifty-five minutes and honestly never thought about them again. Those three toosie rolls were delicious but they were also enough. In all the times, off and on, I have tryed to change my eating habits, I have NEVER been able to do what I did today! I am proud of myself!
Okay, so maybe nobody read this and I am talking to myself but just seeing it in print makes me relive and enjoy that one small success. I would love to hear about everyone else's small and big successes!
Heal yourself first, then give to others
