Taking the Plunge!

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

It is nearly 6:30 p.m. and I decided to take the plunge (with the motivation of a great friend to lend encouragement.) Now I am regretting the plunge I took into that huge cinnamon roll earlier today.
I am really going to have to learn to deal with the cravings for sweets and chips!

I have a problem with managing the appetite. I feel like I am always hungry. So that is going to be my first goal. Find ways to curb the appetite. Right now my mouth is like an evil portal that leads to my stomach. Kind of like the way the closet was an evil portal in the movie Poltergeist!

Now I have the rest of the day to ponder my new beginnings, and learn to live with the guilt of that cinnamon roll from earlier today. Let us hope tomorrow is a little less fattening!

    What is done - is done! It cannot be undone. Move on.

    Try tracking everything you eat - you might be surprised what can be worked into your meal-plans.

    There are many articles here on SP to help deal with food cravings. But don't beat yourself up over the cinnamon roll, acknowledge the misstep and move forward from there. We can't change the past but we can shape our future.

    I tell myself I can eat anything as long as I don't swallow it. I get some sugary food and then I take a bite and chew and when I'm ready to swallow, I spit it out. Works for me to get through a CRAVING as I know I just want the TASTE. Then I clean up the sink, brush my teeth and get some lemon water to drink. Don't have the guilt and I know I'm in control. Doesn't sound great, but it works for me.

    It isn't helping to dwell on the cinnamon roll.
    Can't do anything about it now.
    Please stop beating yourself up and move on.
    Tomorrow is a new beginning.
    I learned that 'no' is a complete sentence.
    That lesson has helped my out of rough situations many times.
