Stop Romancing the Food!

Monday, April 25, 2011

So, an intersting discovery was made yesterday, Easter Sunday, 2011. Candy (particularly Cadbury Robin Eggs and chocolate covered marshmallow eggs), and I have broken up for good. Sure, I looked at them, perhaps even coveted them a bit, but I did not allow myself to continue my romance with the very thing that has brought me to where I am - struggling to drop pounds and inches!

I have had a long love affair with junk food, but something is changing inside of me. That candy at Easter, those chips and drinks at parties - the general overindulgence hasn't really been a positive thing. Sure, I THOUGHT I felt better, but after months of struggling, and making the decision to take sugar out of my diet - has truly changed my life. I realized - TRULY REALIZED - that my relief was temporary. I was band aiding lots of "emotional" issues. The food was my comfort and my friend - or so I thought.

As my kids chowed down all of their chocolate and other treats, I really did struggle for a minute or two. I really wanted to just have one - but then I remembered my promise to myself - and reminded myself that one is too many and ten is not enough. (I learned that from an addiction counselor). While I may have felt a longing for that "comfort", it too was only temporary, and I woke up this morning in full VICTORY mode! I did it! I survived Easter without one tiny speckle of sugar!

So I say to my old loves - It was great while it lasted, but I'm moving on to better things! Keep moving forward! Count every success and before you know it - you will have won little battles after little battles! If I can do it - anyone can!
