T-51 SET YOURSELF ON FIRE! I DID!
Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.
Arnold H. Glasow
I had a great day! I stayed 100 percent on track with eating but that part is not hard with this plan.
IT is a no brainer , simple eating plan and I DON”T HAVE ANY CRAVINGS and that is why I find it so easy!
I have followed 100’s of eating plans over my many years of battling the bulge….
I have done simple and I have done complicated.
I have never done one that banished the cravings.
Here is my biggest reason why this plan is for me….
I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW that when I have 1 Quacker Dipps bar I want 5.
WHEN I have 1 twix I WANT 5!
When I have 10 M&M’s I WANT a bag!
When I have a serving of Doritoes.. I WANT 2 more servings!
When I have 5 pringles I WANT 10 more!
Yes there is a thing called will power… but MR. WILLPOWER runs for the hills when Mr. Doritoe, Mrs. M&M, and Sir Pringles show up! LOL
I just don’t like the battle I get into when I eat this food… I don’t like the energy it consumes.
SIMPLE keeps me successful!
SIMPLE and WITH NO CRAVINGS let me get other things accomplished like work, projects, and all the other things in life that come my way.
I had a LOVE AFFAIR with FOOD for years and years!
McDonalds called my name as I headed to town.
Sonic winked at me everytime I drove by! LOL
Mtn. Dew and Doritoes were my 2 best friends after everyone else went to bed!
Ice Cream treats and Popcorn came out to play when my kids were out of the house for awhile; oh and hubby too… coz I like to have these binges with my food and no one else!
I blamed food missing on one of my kids when someone asked who ate the last brownie, cookie, etc!
OF course you blame the kid that is not in the room… (silly… you have to be creative)
BUT then of course guilt shows up for lying!)
SO then I had a WHOLE new emotion to feed….. guilt!
IF YOU TOLD ME that I could give up sugar and white flour and NOT have anymore cravings I would have told you “YEAH RIGHT?????”
Blah.. blah blah……
MY sister DID tell me this (although she doesn’t follow my eating plan… she paid 300 a month to follow a Weight Loss Clinic’s plan)
NONEtheless.. … she gave up sugar and white flour (breads, etc) and she said…. You won’t even miss it! I rolled my eyes and said “Sure you won’t…” and mumbled under my breath… “IT may work for you but not for me!”
IN fact my thoughts were this:
YOU TELL me I can’t have something and I will want it all the more! HA! Don’t go tell me I won’t miss it… who do you think you are talkin’ too” (hand on the hip and said matter of factly!) I wasn’t born yesterday! Humph!!!
Or another thought I had was:
“IF I go to cuttin’ foods out… and them being off limits… I won’t last 2 wks coz “plans like that don’t work!”
WELL little did I know that if you don’t have the stinkin’ cravings and thoughts about that junk food… like snack crackers, snack foods, homemade breads..etc….
Then you don’t care about it! Who would have known?
ANOTHER big “A LIGHTBULB MOMENT”
Was when my tastebuds CHANGED and I literally…. Find the fresh veggies, fruits, and lean proteins just POP with flavor now!
A salad never did that for me very long before. The old way of eating salads while I STILL ATE all the junk too…. Didn’t last too long.. because I got SICK of salads!
WELL guess what SALADS taste AMAZING now… coz my palette has seriously changed and I LOVE them everyday…. I love lean proteins like ground turkey, chicken, lean steaks, salmon, tilapia..etc!!!!
THE just “POP” with flavor now….
And the sodium contents in these foods are so low compared to all the junk I was eating before!
My blog from 9-17 has the food plan if anyone wants to see it.
I FINALLY feel free from the pull of food for the first time in my life!
Food is ONLY fuel now…. Not an obsession, not a compulsion, NOT AN ADDICTION!
THANK you God for leading me to Nancy (TWO-TOO- MUCH) to learn about this plan!
