Today was one of those days that was just okay..
The best part of the day , it was sunny and warm, 65 degrees so that was a good thing.
but for some reason, it has happened before and will happen again I'm sure....I could not stop thinking of food..I think it was boredom.
I tried keeping busy but I was drawn to the kitchen, to the pantry to the freezer.....
I tried to go over what I did and the only thing I can think of is I had a bagel lite with breakfast, it was 100% whole wheat but it is carbs, good carbs, I also had oatmeal, I did not have my usually blueberries and yogurt, just because I wanted something different...tomorrow it's back to my regular breakfast.....
I hate the battle with food, I hate feeling like I'm being taken over my some cookie monster...
I worked in the house and outside, I call a friend who was not really interested in my eating issues....her rely was you might feel better if you ate more...ya right I have been on that road before....I then went for a 2 mile walk by that time it was snack time...
I'm feeling brain dead by all the self talk I had to do....but the positive side is I have the skills and the tools to do this....I have to keep strong and know the cookie monster will retreat if given enough time......I am happy it was another thing I did not think to do is chew gum or have a mint.....but next time I'll think of that.....and believe me there will be a next time.....tomorrow will be another day and an other challenge....

What was your challenge today?

    Hi Kitt. My challenge today was the weather. It is cold and dismal and rainy here. When the weather is ugly, so am I. My challenge was yours the estumopolis. I snacked on a rice crispie square but that made it worse I tried some salty chips but stilll no luck. I did not do well but it is clearing a little and I just now, how dumb am I? thought of my Spark friends. Good fory you for working through the challenges. I will practice more and get better at it too.

    I understand the feeling. Sometimes you just get food on the brain! It's wonderful that you didn't cave in to the feeling and went for a walk. I need to do more of that.

    Kitt you are an amazing person and doing so well. My battle is with food when Todd is gone. I get bored and figure I can eat whatever I want then get back on plan the next day. I was bad last night had cookies and popcorn. Although the popcorn was lite.

    Keep your head up and keep pressing on healthy and younger kitt.

    Bagels are a huge challenge for me and someone is always bringing in a bag here at work, like yesterday. I just need to stay out of the lunch room and it is hard. Keeping weight off and changing habit is simple but sure not easy.

    Glad you are able to blog about this as it really hits home with me

    I loved hearing that you associated your hunger with the bagel, because I really think that I have the same problem. If I eat good, healthy whole grain bread, my brain keeps after me all day long for more! There has got to be a brain-wave connection to the nutrients or hormones or whatnot that stimulates the desire to seek more of the same.

    WTG on stomping that monster into submission. I keep gum in my purse for snack attacks.

    Kitt its like being an alcoholic...kinda one wrong bite and we are hooked ..something I guess we will have to struggle with....

    Mary got some great veggies and fruit today so I got to munch on strawberries and we had yum asparagus for dinner ..sooooo maybe you need to go shopping for some different/exotic fruits and veggies...might just help you never know till you try it.. try papya mango ect...

    You are doing great, Kitt. I'm sure it's hard now, and hopefully it becomes easier with practice.

    Drive a stake through the heart of the cookie monster and kill it! emoticon

    You are doing great! It's a tough battle sometimes, but you're right -- you have the tools and the stamina to do it. I am so proud of you, Kitt!

    Hi there, you are the friend of a friend. I just read your post and think it is so important to know that it never goes away exactly, just gets more familiar maybe?

    You are an inspiration - thanks for continuing to be here and be healthy!

    You did a great job taming the cookie monster! Losing weight is hard, but so is maintaining. My WW friends that have been lifetime for some time said they struggle just as much if not more than they did when losing. So good to have the skills and tools you do and to be able to recognize when you need to use them! emoticon

    Thank you Kitt ,it is good to be reminded that our struggle will always be there, because we do have to eat.
    Food is going to be with us forever.

    emoticon for doing a great job of dealing with it.

    Better day to morrow!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon
