Tough Tuesday

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

The weather has been beautiful, sunny and why am over whelmed with thoughts of cookies candies and chocolates...Seems today no matter where I went or what I did someone was waving goodies in my face.....
People asking me to taste this or try that.....have just a small piece, and for one moment I thought I was going to scream... emoticon..

I was able to get away for a while and do some deep breathing, I know once I get started I won't stop....
and now I promised to make some peanut cluster for a friend who loves them....OH nuts .. I love nuts and chocolate and together...look out....
My class tomorrow is making a gingerbread house......frosting and candy and gum drops and just seems to be caving in on me......

I need to get a grip......

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

this might be the struggle of my life......

Have a Healthy Wednesday

    Kitt maybe you could pretend to yourself that you are terrible allergic to all chocolate.

    If you eat it you will be very sick---- I won't tell you to have just one because I know what just one can do to a food addict.

    Take the road less travelled Kitt, emoticon

    Oh my Kitt. When I think about people coaxing us with just one bite, I think to myself "would they ask an alcoholic to take just one sip?"

    Unless you have been there they don't understand it is an addiction most of us have with food.

    I'm so proud of you for hanging in there.

    This time of the year is sure the worst for everyone. However only take 1 day at a time and plan your treat. Just make sure after you have it you remove yourself and lordy don't bring anything home

    This time of year is especially hard for me too. Every time I turn around someone is bringing cookies and candy into the office. I was so happy yesterday when our lab rep brought cookies AND a big fresh fruit tray for those of us he knew were eating healthier. It was nice.

    Kitt, it IS the struggle of YOUR life and MY life, and we must remember that the goal is to win the WAR. Sometimes a battle will be lost - but it's the final outcome that matters most!

    We're here for each other! emoticon

    Kitt, this is a very tough time of year. We are besieged with treats and I totally understand how overwhelmed you feel. I feel the same! We have to stand strong and fight it, one day at a time, one treat at a time. Today I comprised and had a couple of those small cupcakes. Then I prayed for strength to not have anything else, and I visualized myself sticking to the rest of my food plan. With God's help I got through it. You can, too. Don't give in and definitely don't give up! Factor in some treats, if that helps you. Visualize yourself cloaked in the armor of God, impervious to chocolate and frosting and gingerbread and candy. It's hard, but you can do it, Kitt! Food has no power over you except that which you give it. Keep the power for yourself! You are tough and you can do it, Kitt! Stand strong!!!

    Stay strong Kitt, you can do it. Let yourself have one or two pieces of candy then the struggle won't be so overwhelming for you. Let us know how it goes.

    Oh my goodness Kitt, I am totally in the same park that you are, except that it is sub zero temps. with snow. These food issues are really getting to me this year. Last year, it didn't bother me at all. This year is a totally different story. I haven't caved yet, but if it gets too bad, I will allow myself my favorite in moderation. I think that I can do the moderation thing. People who wave this stuff in front of our faces, just don't understand what it's like.
