Day 7

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Another day of success. I stayed within my calorie limits. I even went to the store and was not even tempted to stray. I have often been known to buy candy bars, a cake slice, ice cream, or more and I usually consumed most of it on the short drive home. If I had items left over I would hide them and eat them later when I was alone. I would also hide the wrappers so that my husband wouldn't see what I had consumed. It sounds so stupid and actually like a drug addict. I had successfully overcome this behavior for most of 2012 and then started slipping at Halloween and was fully back into this behavior by January of this year. Somehow I felt justified to have "treats" whenever I shopped. So thank goodness for this ability to blog and be accountable to you wonderful SparkPeople. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your kind remarks and support!

    What you described is not stupid.....just a bad habit to have. You have successfully dodged this habit and will continue to do so.....being aware and accountable is YOUR key.....congrats for being aware of this. I can relate to buying those "treats" when shopping.....been there. Now I carry what I call a "safe" snack along with me to the store......and a bottle of water. I manage to drink the water while shopping and waiting in the check out line. I also eat the safe snack on the way home.....for me it's a win win situation. Keep moving forward with your plan and we will get/stay healthy together. emoticon
