Conversation with Myself

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Myself: I don't know why I keep doing it to myself. I go along great - am at the halfway mark to my goal - blow it all for no reason!

Me: You haven't blown it all. It is a temporary setback.

Myself: I know what I am supposed to do and then I do something stupid like I did tonight - went to the store and consciously bought Little Debbie Nutty Bars and a box of cookies and Debbi cakes. I have already downed part of the cookies and two servings of Little Debbie Nutty Bars.

Me: Look at the bright side. You didn't down the whole box and you know you will have to account for it later. Just put those boxes away. Think about tomorrow and how you will lower your calorie intake to compensate for what you did tonight. It is not the end of the world and you haven't destroyed what you have already accomplished!! It is a temporary setback.

Myself: I am glad you understand me so well and that you don't get mad at me. I know the right things to do and I will do them. After all, the girls at TOPS have been cheering me on and helping me get to where I am now. And all those Spark Members - I don't want to let them down. But most important of all - I don't want to let myself down.

    Believe me you could have been talking to me as you were talking to yourself except my downfall was Oreos but my saving grace is that this time I only had a total of 2 today at different times. Wish I could find something good for me that is crunchy to replace other stuff but not celery. It bothers my stomach for some reason at night. You will make it and your "inner you" gave you great advice. I liked your blog a lot.

    Nicely written. I know if this was me then I would be writing that same blog then continuing with my eating anyway. My stomach would have to be exploding not to keep eating. Even now... all that just sounded delicious. Isn't it funny how our brains work? That stuff is bad for you! Put it away until you can manage your portions! Get back on track. You don't have to "make up" for it. Just keep within your calorie range from now on and stick to it.

    You're a really strong person and you have the power to do this. Keep on keeping on!
