Oh no so life is going along and I am getting better at making good eating choices, losing weight, gaining confidence and then something happens. Not even sure what happened - sure there is some deep seated reason but I do not have the time or inclination to discover the why - it is just easier to stop it.

Not sure what happen but I have made some conscious choices and eating one - two candy bars the last several days. I tell myself that I am tired and I am tired, so that is a truth, but what I am not sure is truth, is that chocolate is like speed to me and keeps me awake. The other part of the sabotage is that there is the untimely crash from eating two candy bars, so than I sleep more. And the scale jumped four pounds.

So I refuse to beat myself up over this candy bar incident, verbally. I also refuse to go down this slippery slope. No one needs eight candy bars in a week. I do not think I had eight candy bars in the last 12 month.

So I am back on a sugar fast because I do best avoiding sugar. Not really a candy bar challenge but a sugar fast. The rule is no sugar 30 days - have a treat and then back on the fast works best for me.

    I have had several incidents, the last one being last night. For me, it is after dinner eating, while I watch TV. But since I got a FitBit and synchronized it with SparkPeople, I can see if I can afford a bit of that extra eating or not. Tracking my food and my physical activity allows me to indulge sometimes. I cannot for now remove chocolate altogether from my life. But I opted to eat only high quality chocolate, like Lindt, and one or two squares at a time. That way, I can still treat myself but with control and without too much damage.

    You know your own weaknesses which is good. Sounds like you have a plan of action. So time to move on from the 'incident' and get to some healthy living.

    The complete sugar fasts just don't work for me! But, you are doing good to recognize that slippery slope and putting a stop to it no matter what it takes!
