figuring things out....

Monday, February 15, 2010

Previously I had mentioned my conundrum...if I try to eliminate sugar I want it more. If I try it in moderation...I always want more than just one bite, which at times can turn into a carbfest! I think that I realized today (and maybe it's just from feeling inspired) that I think it's just easier to not have ANY. Realizing this in and of itself is a step in the right direction.

I am very proud of myself for not eating DD Munchkins @ work today which may not seem like a big deal, but for me it's progress. I thought about how good it would feel to Spark about how I DIDN'T eat them vs. how crappy I'd feel for giving in to the temptation of eating pure JUNK. Now tmrw there will be bday cake for a coworker and I will try my darnedest to not have ANY. I don't NEED it. I will not cease to exist w/o it. It will be OK!

    emoticon on staying strong. It's an emoticon start. I think it is definitely easier to not have any especially if you are struggling to bad. It's frustrating and I know you wish it didn't have to be that way but you just feel better without it because when there is no control it just gets us down and depressed.

    You sound like me when I quit smoking! I tried a couple of times to just "cut back". Yeah, like that worked!!! HA HA I found myself creeping back up to where I was before. The only thing that really did it was to go cold turkey. The first week I did a lot of praying (seriously, it helped!). I determined that God was my strong hold & if I leaned on Him & not the pack of smokes I'd be a lot better off. I have been smoke free since the day I quit 8 years ago.

    You can do it!

    I have come to realize that if you are tempted by something it is best to avoid it, but when you are in control you can enjoy everything in moderation. emoticon
