My most common temptation is snacking. I know that snacking is not necessarily a bad thing but I tend to overdo it, even with healthy snacks. I will eat three servings of whole grain crackers with low fat cheese instead of one or 4 handfuls of nuts instead of one serving!

This may sound so cheesy, but I have taken on the slogan, "JUST": As in Just say no! Just exericse! Just do it! Just be strong! Just hold on til tomorrow! ETC.... My main mantra is: JUST know that Jesus Christ lives within you and will help you overcome any obstacle that stands in the way of becoming the person he wants you to be. One of those obstacles being Temptation.

Temptations vary in my life, but I have been making a serious effort to avoid these temptations. Obedience is a must to avoid temptations, and what makes obedience so difficult is you have to adhere to it even when don't want to do so.

Temptation. What a word!! I've learned that in order to overcome any trial and fight every temptation we need to be OBEDIENT to GOD!! I've realized that with GOD at the center of my LIFE and the head of my LIFE I am able to stand up and FIGHT every temptation that comes my way!! Mona, sistah thank you for your words.. Words which has helped me and opened my eyes to what I know is REAL which is our Lord Jesus Christ!! I had lost this weight 3 years ago and then got married, had my lil'angel and gained it all back.. For reasons that were BLESSED but now it is time to take it off so I can become that Healthy Mama for my family!! Life is too short to be tempted to eat and live a unhealthy life.. Let us not be overwhelmed by temptations that will withhold us from our VICTORY!! Be accountable of your actions and your WORDS!! If you say you want to be healthy, and you want to loose this weight then do it!! My encouragement is that we need to lay it all before GOD. Only GOD can pull us through the storm and only HE can bless us!! Since God's Word is of such blessing and benefit to us, why do we find it so difficult to live with and live by? Why is Bible reading, study, meditation and memorization such a chore for us? Why do we so readily neglect and forget it? Why does it not hold a more prominent and important place in our experience? What a frustration! Well, I think these all have a very simple answer: spiritual warfare. Our flesh wars against our spirit. The devil wars against us. The world distracts us. Its a war...and we arent always on a war footing! So lets do what everybody is supposed to do in a war -- fight! And in this daily fight, remember to lean heavily on the Lord: With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments (Psalm 119:10)" Be blessed this week and know that you are not alone!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

My Temptation is the "Caramel Turtle Sipable Sundae" from Steak n Shake. That was my daily treat while I was pregnant. Now that I have had the baby & Im ready to lose these extra pounds, I swear I have started to crave these shakes more now then ever.

Believe it or not, my temptation is my mind. Sometimes I feel like giving up or not doing my exercises or not eating right or something that is contrary to who I need to be, the place I am trying to go or the peace I long for, but I am extremely grateful for two things (the word of God and accountability). The word of God tells me in 1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. In addition to that I thank God for people that allow you to stand and lean on their shoulders. Those are the people I am accountable to. I believe that people come into your life for a reason, season, and a lifetime and Tamara is a life timer. We have been friends since we were little girls and it just gets better and better. Since we are more spirit than body and my body is subject to my spirit (not my spirit to my body) I have no other choice but to overcome my mind when it tries to tempt me to not exercise, not eat healthy, not pursue my dreams, not be the best wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend or simply NOT LIVE MY BEST LIFE NOW!

Life is choice driven. You will live or die by the choice you make. You can make the choice, but you CAN NOT choose the consequence!!!!!!!

Blackpearlmej- what are raisin canes?

Fact: however long it'll take you to reach your goals, just remember that the time's going to pass anyway, so either you'll stay where you are now, or you'll be the "you" you dream about today:)

My temptations are problems that I am having with a co-worker. I was tempted to curse her, but I refrained. However, I did eat Raisin Canes twice this week. I know I ate it because I emotionally stressed. I am going to reflect and revamp my strategies for dealing with difficult co-workers.

Last night my temptation was to not work out, but I did. 3 miles. Every day so far in August. emoticon

Then it was not to taste my husbands late night "snack" of a pot pie. emoticon

Today I will do it for me. If I fall down I will get back up each and every time!!

I am worth the fight!

Oh I agree with you, Jerseygirl:) They are really high in calories and fat, though it's the "good" kind of fat. And I know that too much fat- even if it's the good kind- will still make you fat, so I do have 1 or 2 oz. at the most when I have them, and I always track them and stay within my daily calorie limit. That's the only way I can still have them! I'm not really going to od on them-lol- I was just thinking that it figures I never noticed them before I was really trying to lose weight.

Fact: however long it'll take you to reach your goals, just remember that the time's going to pass anyway, so either you'll stay where you are now, or you'll be the "you" you dream about today:)

The only thing stopping me is me!

To Misstherealme:

Ok, I know I have to be very careful about how I say this, but maybe smoked almonds aren't such a bad thing. Nuts can be very satisfying. There is some proof that high fat snacks can stave off later snacking and eating better than high carb, low fat snacks (like pretzels).

That said, and the reason I have to be careful, is that nuts are high in fat, and fat can make you.. well, fat. You have to be careful to eat in moderation. Measure out a portion (e.g. 1 oz.) and do not eat more. If it is too much of a temptation and you can't stop, then you probably do have to give up the nuts. But it may not be so bad. Just a thought.

Right now my temptation is smoked almonds. I'm wondering why I never ate them when I wasn't concerning myself with tracking calories. emoticon

My temptations are:
1. Ice Cream
2. Cookies
3. To go to sleep each and everyday without exercising and then not doing it when I wake up.
4. To focus on how much weight I have to lose, rather than the weight I have lost thus far.

F.A.I.T.H.

Hello and here to lay it on the line...to put it out into the universe so good things will come from it.

My temptations are...
-Staying with a husband that has no respect for me or our kids.
-PIZZA
-My ego
-To over eat
-to stay in a place in my life that is not healthy for me(mind, body and soul)just for the simple fact that I'm comfortable.

Since I am new I guess it is my turn to confess!

My temptations are:

smoking

wanting to slap the people around me for underminding me when I am trying to do something good

stepping on the scales EVERY HOUR on the HOUR!

Not to scream at my mother in law "FOR GODS SAKE GET MEDICATED, we all know where your son got his mental problems even if you are in denial"

to over exercise and under eat

skipping meals

I am very tempted to let myself sink into this loosing weight thing and ignore the rest of my life

to eat even less when I see someone else over eating

if exposed to someone over eating for too long, I even feel the need to get sick

to hide in my room so I do not have to cope with the drama or stress

to be selfish

okay enough for now....

My temptation today is actually not food, but wanting to skip working out. It is so hot still and this weather drains my energy and makes me want to do anything but be active. But I know I have to force myself! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

My temptation is still McDonald's choclate chip cookies. This is how bad I have it, I went the opposite way I needed to go to work. I sat in traffic for about 10 minutes to get to McDonald's for these COOKIES. So you see how bad I really have it. LOL. emoticon

Passing up cake takes some serious willpower, J! Congrats! You are very strong! My temptation today was everything I saw that looked good- ice cream, pizza, the whole bakery- because I had to go grocery shopping after work before I could go home and eat my healthy dinner first. But I didn't get any of it! I did get fat-free sugar-free frozen yogurt, 40 cal fudgesicles, more veggies for my baked chicken, high-protein cereal bars and soy-milk and yogurt for my smoothies. Now I won't be tempted by what I didn't buy! emoticon

Congrats too to Maialofasvito on the muffins! They're nothing but unfrosted cake anyway- lol- and having only one showed a lot of strength!

Today like everyday my temptation will be to minimize sweets as well as try to stay with in my calorie range. I also will need to fight temptation even harder after work not to over do it.

Today I will do it for me. If I fall down I will get back up each and every time!!

Today's temptation was a McDonalds Sausage Mcgriddle. I really wanted it but I kept driving to work and had my oatmeal instead. Baby steps I know.... I have had a tough week fighting temptations. But today is a new day. So here I go getting back on the wagon.... I can do it. emoticon

OMG, today is Donuts, I just moved back home for the summer from college. At school I am able to control my cravings but here my brother and step father are junk food fanatics. There are these yummy looking glazed donuts on top of the refrigerator. I just want to eat them up.

Today it is Chocolate M&M's. My co-worker keeps them on her desk. A big bowl. So tempting. I did not eat them today. I have about 2.5 hours before quitting time, and I will steer clear of her office the rest of the day. And ice cream, its always calling my name. emoticon

Today and every day my temptation is ice cream. So I have come to the conclusion instead of eating a huge bowl just to eat a small one or a cone of ice cream of the low fat less calories. Most of the time I can't tell the difference.

Today I will do it for me. If I fall down I will get back up each and every time!!
