TRIGGERS (not the horse)

Saturday, June 29, 2013

I have found that you just have to know the triggers. Sugar, processed refined anything that will cause your desires for the "wrong" kind of food, what I mean is GMO's and High sugar content. It's in everything! In all forms under seriously at least 40 different names!

Anyway since I started dropping these forms of food. 97 days ago, I have had absolutely NO
cravings. And I am discovering how wonderful this new lifestyle is. I have energy to walk 3 miles a day, never did before with any diet I tried. And believe me I tried all of them. But with all of them I managed to still get sugar in there somewhere, because I still craved it! It was still an ingredient in packaged items (Nutri system, Jenny Craig, WW) And I still binged because of the triggers.

I think with my own experience, guilty pleasures of eating things you know you shouldn't brings on not only the binge, (I want more) but the guilt trip. Oh yeah, been there done that. Most all the time I left the diet or plan I was trying to do at the time. How many times I went to Weight Watchers? How many times did I restart, feeling ok this was it? I did so many times I can't remember.

I have to commend those of you that can have cheat days, or eat that little bit of something that you know is a trigger, and still be able to remain faithful to your journey. That is very hard for some of us to do.

I am just one of those who can't. It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle change. I have chosen to give
up "my" triggers. If I can still say this on my next 3 months of improving my health, and staying faithful to my plan. Than as Charlie Sheen had said "Winning"!!!!

    I'm with you ! I find I am much better off to avoid the "triggers" in the first place. I have dabbled lately with trying an occasional sweet treat ( like today I had a single serving of butter pecan ice cream w/o the cone ), but overall I am better off staying away from that stuff as much as possible.

    that is what I have to do, I can not eat candy, because I can not quit eating candy, really simple, and I know this is the way I am, but still slip up pretty darn often, I have not had any for 4 days, and this is good. emoticon
