Cookies go away!

Monday, December 22, 2008

I have realized something today this is the first holiday season I have lost weight instead of gaining in many years. Today I was at work in the nurses lounge with cookies upon cookies around me. Temptation was very high and I really just wanted to snatch just one! One of the docs the other day gave us a huge gift bag full of chocolate, chips and other junk food. The bag was just about empty, when I looked inside there was a few south beach protein snack bars in there. I not surprised no one ate them with all the goodies to be had but I felt it was a sign for me to continue my journey and ditch the cookies. So I finished my break by taking a walk around the hospital eating one of the bars. I know I can do this. I honestly can't wait for the holidays to end but these are just trials for me to get through and decide how bad do I want to reach my goal.

    i understand that
    i work at a nursing home and it seems all the families want to bring in sweets for everyone this time of year.
    i enjoy the freh fruits the most.
    however that one seems to get sent in the least.

    Good for you on resisting temptation. You are doing great. I am so very impressed that you took a walk and ate a bar instead. Have no fear the holidays will soon be over all we will only have all the normal temptations.
