I feel the same way and I professionally bake cakes! However, I don't eat what I bake so that helps. I think a lot of my sugar consumption comes from my iced teas. So that I am learning to curb. Been getting into water more and would like to try infused with fruit or veggies.

My meeting last night was about honesty & action plan. After this weekend I have had to admit I am allergic to sugar and can't have it. The littlest bit will lead me to binge. This will be hard for me to give up but I need to remember to ask God for help every time candy and baked goods come up.

We have snow and blowing wind here-not looking forward to the drive to work.

Happy Tuesday!

I am an intellingent person. I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me. Everytime I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desires, build up my enjured ego or dull my senses, I will remember...even though I overeat in private, my excess poundage is there for all the world to see.
I will take off pounds sensibly!

I am really struggling with my food the last couple of days-need to get back on track. I do good the first part of the week but slowly fall apart as the week goes on.

My granddaughter is here so today we will put up the tree and decorate the house.

We are also having nice weather for December, hard to get into the spirit as there is no snow.

Have a great day!

I got myself to the gym last night-felt good. My eating is going well, sticking to my food plan.
Today I start in my new room -lots of learning ahead.
Hard to believe we are coming to the end of the month-where does the time go?

Have a great day!

Went to my meeting is was on Step 3. Heard lots of wonderful things during the share.

For some reason I lost my wireless last night, hubby bought a new wireless printer and not sure if that is the problem. He is still sleeping so thank goodness we have a desk top computer that I can use.

Had another good day food wise, hoping today I will be able to abstain. Plan is to go to the gym in the evening.

Nell I don't know if I could get rid of the ice cream-good for you.

Yesterday was pretty good I got most of my list accomplished. I didn't make it to the gym hoping today it will happen. I touched base with my sponsor which was good.
My plan for today church, gym or a walk outside as the weather is going to be nice. Work on having only 3 meals and 2 healthy snacks if needed.

I woke up at 3:30. Sigh. Yesterday I put the homemade ice cream down the disposal. I should have figured out a way to send it home with grandchildren. Oh well, I'm safe now.

Today my wall post was "Refocusing" the past week and a half I have been off course. Not making it to meetings last week or even to church last Sunday it has really thrown me off and I need to get back on course.
I have let my resentments and fears cloud my mind. Today I am really going to try and let go and let God - get back to basics and do what I need to do.

Have a great day!

While I was out shopping yesterday, my car overheated. The temp came down, but it sounded funny. We'll be taking my car to the shop after rush hour this morning,hopefully they can figure it out since it faded by the time I got home. This is a bad time to be worried about my car. It's nearly 13 years old, has 114,000 miles on it, but I LOVE that car!

I noticed that Best Buy is offering Black Friday discounts online. I can actually get a Black Friday deal this year! I don't ever brave the crush in the stores on Black Friday.

Everyone ready for next week?

Janine, I haven't had anyone notice what I eat for a long time. Sometimes they'll ask, but when they know I'm perfectly happy they move on. I do the same thing: "Can I get you anything? Do you want more? Do you want more coffee?" etc, but it's just part of being the hostess. If anyone asks because of interest beyond my happiness, I just ask them why on earth they care what I'm eating, and can I get something for THEM? I just act like hired help when need be, but it doesn't happen much anymore. People are so used to my not eating much, and that I don't drink alcohol, that they are long past noticing me.

My AA sponsor long ago asked me if some guy insisted on "taking me to see his etchings" or whatever the current metaphor might be, would I even consider it? Or have any reaction other than NO? Offering food isn't quite the same, but my reaction is. If I am absolutely confident in my way of eating (or in my fidelity to my husband) no one can divert me, or even offend me. Irritate or disgust? Yes. Offend, no.

I can't believe how time is flying!! This is the time that I think we, as a group, really need to support each other. Holidays can represent so many things to us. I used to be really scared of the holidays. Not so much the food part.....but the criticism or toxic people that contributed to the food part. I was the walking wounded into any party. The party of family I detested the most. I always felt I had to back up or fight for my food choices. Why should I feel this way? AT A PARTY?! Well, as I relied on my HP, I had sort of an epiphany of sorts. You see, this party wasn't a party. It was under the disguise of a party. It was my judgmental, critical family gathering. Not a holiday party. I stopped going to them for quite a while until I learned I am worthy of who I am, what I say and can leave at any time to enjoy MY HOLIDAY. Does this story sound familiar? I am here for each and every one of you.

Janine
