Smell is very powerful for me unfortunately. I have caved in on a lot of occasions because of the smell of things, or after I left kept thinking about that item and went and got it. I have still yet to go to the movies and NOT pig out on popcorn! I just accept that it is going to happen and therefore go to the movies VERY rarely!

My temptation was fish and chips - I LOVE Fish and Chips - batter and all - we use to own a Fish and Chips restaurant! My husband was having surgery and my sister and brother-in-law came to take me out to supper (surgery was out of town). We went to a local pub and it was a Friday - what more can I say - Fish and Chip Day! I ordered the grilled fish and salad (my sister the same) but my B-I-L ordered the Fish and Chips! The smell drove me nuts - I could sooooooo taste them. I was however, so proud of myself for sticking to Paleo and ordering the healthier choice. I seriously have not had the hankering for sweets but the smell of the batter and vinegar and chips just drove me nuts! emoticon

Hang in there, Karen!! I know how you feel!

A co-worker just brought in a plate with two fresh baked cookies from the kitchen... ugg!! Had to say no -- but I did it! I may be willing to make small "cheats" later -- but our goal is 90 days 100%! On day 10, so I guess we're already over 10% there!!!

One idea about kids bringing stuff like that home: trade it for something he really wants, even cold, hard cash will work. And sometimes that's where the paleo-treats come in handy. Chocolate cheesecake with nut crust, very little Xylitol or Erythritol will be soooo yummy, even in comparison to a regular brownie. I'm not planning to eat stuff like that regularly but like to have some in the freezer when a family member "needs" a treat.

Over Christmas break I went to breakfast at The Village Inn with my sister. I know that i could have just gotten an omelet with extra veggies and pushed the pancakes aside, but for some reason the smothered waffles were calling my name. I ate them and i'm not proud of it. Not only was I bouncing off the walls for HOURS!!!! but I also had wheat belly and wanted to vomit. I have taken that moment of joy that i had while eating them and turned it into a lesson for myself. That joy only lasted until the food was gone and then I had the stomach ache. It wasn't worth it. I prefer to get my moments of joy from other things.

Exactly!

That's one thing that I didn't "get" when I first looked at the Whole30 and it said not to 'paleo-ify' goodies... I mean, what's wrong with that?!

Oh yeah, that reliance on 'treats' that moves them from the occasional food group to the staple food group isn't a good thing.

Keep pressing on!

Yep ladyrose, I am PRESSING ON! I also always look for my "way of escape"! It was to just get out of there!

In a couple weeks I may try a brownie substitute. But right now I need to get it out of my head that I need them at all!

Thanks for the encouragement ladies!

To steal from your signature line:

:)

Sometimes I do a game to remind myself that 1) it's my choice to eat or not eat something, and 2) I've eaten a LOT of brownies (or what ever food is extra tempting at the moment) and while I may enjoy that taste, I don't need it right now...

I expected you to say it smelled bad!

The longer you're away from stuff like that, the weirder things smell.

Keep pushing!

Just looking for someone to commiserate with me I guess . . .My son (4 years old) got a brownie yesterday from a friend. He brought it home wrapped in foil to save for today.

He just opened it at the other end of the table. It smells SOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOD!

sigh. Just need to buck up that it isn't what I need right now. I don't need the wheat, I don't need the white sugar, and I don't need the calories.

Making the choice to be INTENTIONAL. (Just wrote a blog post about that).
