Feeling Self Destructive

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

I have worked very hard to break 160 lbs. I spent 23 weeks of up and down never getting there.
I am finally on the downward slide. 29 lbs will get me to my goal. WooHoo RIGHT.
Then why all week have I have all these huge urges. Urges to buy or bake brownies. Urges to tackle the chinese buffet. Urges to eat a 16 oz porterhouse medium rare with a baked potato swimming in whipped BUTTER and sour cream!!!
I have given in to NONE. It has been such a very hard week and it is only Tuesday!!
I am DONE!!!! I will survive because I am DONE!!! I am strong because I am DONE!!!!

    We all sabotage ourselves, we do so well for so long and then just want to give in, want that brownie (THIS WEAKNESS IS THE WORST!), or the cheese fries, or that chinese buffet. But plan ahead, know that you are ready for the cravings, keep gum in the car to keep you from stopping to pick up food, drink lots of water, if you have to pee you don't think as much about your cravings, plus the water helps fill you up. Give a bag of hershey kisses to someone you trust and when you are in desperate need, go and ask for one, HOWEVER, it needs to be someone who will stand up to your begging for more, and someone who hides the kisses from you so that you don't go splurge while they are out of their office ;) I tried keeping the kisses with me, and realized that I dont have nearly enough self control to have only one. Good luck with your weight loss, I too am battling my own weaknesses, I know we can do this, despite ourselves :) I will pass along my email address, I know that for me, sending a quick email in celebration after I come home from the grocery store without any "extras", or when I am trying to talk myself into a run, shoot me an email if you need a little back up :) krisrobe@gmail.com

    I don't know what it is about being close to a goal that makes us want to sabatage ourselves! What is up with that? I'm proud of you for not giving in to those cravings though! Stand strong. Chew a piece of gum, suck on a mint - brush your teeth - go for a walk. Anything to think about something besides food.

    Hang in there baby - you'll make it - because you're DONE!
