Day 41 - Self-sabotage

Thursday, December 24, 2009

I went out to eat Chinese for dinner with a friend. I had a lovely dinner - hot and sour soup, steamed flounder with bok choy, brown rice and plenty of water and unsweetened tea. Everything was very delicious. I ate slowly, chewed well, enjoyed my food and had lovely conversation.

But I, yes I, suggested we share a dessert. Did I need ice cream? NO. Did I want ice cream? YES.

If I am to get off this plateau - in the right direction - I cannot continue to indulge my wants. Why do I do this to myself? I need to send more love and less food my way!

    OOOh...I, too, LUV ice cream. You CAN fit it into your plan you know. You keep doing "this" because food tastes good. Don't deprive yourself completely. I know, it's hard. Sometimes ridiculously hard. Maybe we should picture ourselves busted by a sea of paparazzi every time we have a secret eating episode....

    Hang in there. Remember the occasional splurge is ok. It just gets dangerous when those rare treats start to happen all the time. :) Congrats on your loss this week!

    What is done is done, tomorrow is another day :) And it is Christmas :)

    Have you tried Frozen Yogurt? It has less calories than Ice Cream or Dryer's Slow Churned Light Ice Cream it has half the fat.

    Don't give up, if I should slip up I just start again :)

    And there are always substitutes and alternatives :)

    Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :) and come and visit my page anytime :)
