My weakness will NOT defeat me!

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!
