Day 9 and sugar is calling my name

Monday, July 08, 2013

I have cheated a few times this week with sugar. I am trying so hard but it is my downfall.
I hate tv commercials because of all the food they show. I do love my frozen blueberry , spinach and apple juice smoothy though and that helps. What doesn't is my hubby bringing home, two days ago, swiss cake rolls, yesterday jelly rolls and today sour cream and onion potato chips. I did not eat the swiss cakes, had one jelly roll and one chip. I sure hope it doesn't make me gain. I thought I had this in the bag and eventually I will but darn the first couple of weeks is going to be crazy.

I have been shaking my booty. That should get some of those calories off.

I have tried to hide from the snacks and he eats them in his man cave...but he has to come past me and the computer to go from the kitchen to his room.

so true...just keep saying that over and over again,

I know that this scale is smiling at me. Is that good or bad?

Know this If you give up, you will not win
If you put that in your mouth, you will have to start again
If you don't shake that booty, it will get bigger
Don't bring it home, if it is your food trigger
Life is for those who try and give it all
If you don't you will be as wide as you are tall
for heavens sake put down that swill
It will lead to unhealthy life and taking a pill
If you see your hubby on the way with a snack
Let him go by while you turn your back.
Your birthday cake, will summon you
Just remember to hold your breath, but don't turn blue
So If you read my blog and you don't take my advice
if I were you , I would think twice.
Thanks again for stopping by tonight
I have to go hide from my hubbys snack delight.

    LOL, my husband will not give up his chocolate or chips either. Most of the time chips don't bother me. Occasionally I'll get into his back, and usually have more than a serving, but won't touch them again for a month. His chocolate is milk chocolate, and since I've fallen for dark chocolate, I don't like milk chocolate at all. I keep Dove Dark Promise in the freezer. Occasionally I'll thaw 3 pieces, meanwhile he'll finish off 3 bags of Hershey milk chocolate (and not gain weight) in a week!

    I agree with some of the others, don't give up what you crave completely. Bag it in single serving sizes and put out of sight. When you can fit it into your tracking, have a serving. I read a blog recently and she said, You can have it all, just not all at once!"

    You're doing good, and you're helping so many others. I know it can't help to hear the rest of us complain about every little thing and want everything changed to suit us. You are always so polite and jump right on fixing or changing to suit us. Thanks for all of your hard work. It is appreciated.

    We all have to find what works for us. I MUST have my snacks and treats. Last night I finished off my peanut butter fudge that I made last month. I have had a couple of pieces almost every day. I also keep a drawer full of chocolate.

    Funny how when we each have our own methods. Like you, hubby wants no sweets around him. I get frustrated, because I might buy some chips or cookies or whatever, but he eats them then when I want them they aren't there! LOL!

    Good luck, Pam. Remember that this is a process not a temporary plan. You will find that which you can live with. I promise! emoticon

    Love your poem!! I like what Carolyn had to say.... I think it is all about the moderation unless the sugar is truly a ruthless trigger for you. If I tell myself that I can't have something it only makes me want it all the more and before i know it instead of eating one cookie I've eaten two or three. If you want something, have it, but plan for it, fit it into your tracker and you will be OK emoticon

    I like your light hearted yet serious look at sugar and your own desires. Give in occasionally but an counted amount then stop , it's chocolate with me!

    I think we all fight the urge to indulge and feel guilty when we do. I also think constantly trying to deprive ourselves of things we enjoy can derail our efforts. It's not realistic to think you're NEVER going to have the things you enjoy again. Even knowing they're bad for you and are derailing your efforts isn't going to make you stop wanting them. For me, what I think is a more realistic approach is allow yourself something you really want, but do it in moderation, make it a real treat instead of something you sneak and then feel guilty about. My nemesis is popcorn which wouldn't be too bad if I didn't pop it in oil on the stove and then add butter. So I've decided Saturday is popcorn night. I plan for it, I look forward to it and I enjoy it. I still want it other times during the week (I used to eat a big bowl of it at least 5 nights a week) but now I tell myself, "You can wait, it's only ___ days more." I remember when my children were little and I tried putting the treats on the top shelf in the kitchen out of reach. They seemed so much more tempting when they were up there than they ever did before I moved them. They also disappeared quicker. If we're trying to change our habits for life we have to be realistic. I don't think total denial is realistic. I truly wish you well with your efforts, I just don't want to see you get so frustrated that you end up giving up all together. I think a lot of us have been there too.

    I go through the same with my husband that has a very bad sugar addiction, he has to have dessert on every meal and even breakfast.
    I have found by trial and error.....many times over, when I give in and have a piece or two of any of his sweet desserts I have a hard time going back to the low sugar regimen. But if I stay clear of them I don't have any cravings for them.
    So I try to have the sweetest fruit of the day at dinner time while he is eating dessert and that keeps me satisfy.
    I'm getting over some binges with sweets I had a couple of weeks ago and I tell you the more sweets you have for one day the longer it gets to get them off your system.
    Good Luck! God Bless our husbands with good health....and hopefully one day they get over the sugar addiction.... emoticon
