My weakness will NOT defeat me!

Thursday, November 10, 2011

My weakness, I have a few of them, but one big weakness for me is sweet addiction. The worst culprit...... ice cream!

There is just something about it that makes it so addicting to me.

Well for November I am giving up sweets and this includes ice cream. But we still have some in our house. So I am just torturing myself but I will win!

Last night I am talking with my hubby and he dished himself up a small bowl of my favorite. Moose tracks.... the kind with peanut butter chocolate chunks. So I am watching him as he is licking his spoon. And I start thinking to myself, what is one little bowl....

WHAT..... what are you doing ELAINE!

BUT WAIT..... I made a commitment! I made a goal! I can't go back on my word that I made to myself. So I didn't.... instead I made myself a hot cup of peppermint tea (decaf of course) and ate a cracker w/ cheese.

And guess what..... I also had support!

My dear spark friend Michelene (MICHCLEARY) was so sweet and sent me a reminder text saying, "NO ice cream Elaine". Almost at the exact time that I wanted to reach for some ice cream. How did she do that??? How did she know that I needed that??? Cuz she is awesome that is why!


So lean on your friends.... lean on your family..... ask them for support because it really does help and make a difference. And having goals also helps to keep you on track. Post them everywhere for that little friendly reminder. Because you owe it to yourself!

I know I may have a few more weak moments but with the right people on my side, I will conquer! And my weakness, it WON'T defeat me!

    Ice cream is also one of my week spot! Great job on resisting temptation and finding better alternative! I truly admire that! One of my Sparkfriend MOMONTHERUN1 has also decided to say no to sugar for the next month... Since then I have been more conscious of my food choices... I have to say that example like both of you inspire me and keeps me motivated (when I think of giving up, I think of my Sparkfriends...) emoticon

    Ice cream is my weakness too. I used to eat some almost every day. But, I think I've only had it about eight times in the last 6 months (and in more controlled proportions). It still calls to me, I just try to ignore it.

    great job resisting temptation, and when it was right up in your face like that, you have shown your strength!

    It will get easier the longer you go, especially if you keep track of how long you've gone without the sweets....you won't want to give up the "streak"!

    She is more than a Spark friend - she's got to be an amazing psychic BFF.
    That is cool!
    And congrats on not giving in to the craving.
