For the past several days (today included),I have been tempted to buy a snickers ice cream bar!!! Over the 4th of July weekend my best friend discovered that they sell them at the 7-eleven directly downstairs from my loft! But so far, I've not given in! :)

Today, I was tempted to buy something at Kohl's dept. store. I have lately purchased enough clothes, so I was proud of myself for not feeling the "need" to buy something just because I was there.

My biggest temptation so far today was not diving into the community Doritos in the break room. Who says you just can't have one??

Thank you for your biblical messages. Nothing is too hard for God. Amen.

Todays temptation was to eat more cake than is allowed in on day, but the news at my medical last Friday indicated that I lost another 4 pounds. emoticon

I was really Happy with myself today by eating 3 peanut butter cookies instead of a dozen or more. I made these today from scratch. You can imagine the temptation I was experiencing. I have lost about 20 pounds so far and I am not ready to gain it all back. I keep reminding myself of the effort made to achieve it!!!!!!

Today's temptation for me is eating everything in sight just because I'm on vacation. A week long vacation can give me far more calories than I am bargaining for if I'm not more careful! Today, I am committing to stay in my boundaries. I hope I can do it!

Today as been fine so far but yesterday was brutal. My club was open with a new poolside cafe with bar. It was so convenient to just eat and enjoy down by the pool. I am going to have to watch myself this summer and bring my own good snacks. emoticon

Today I am soooo hungry and my temptation is to go to Subway, get a footlong, a Sprite, and some chocolate chip cookies instead of the healthy lunch I packed. I'm going to go out for a walk for some distraction and then come back and eat my healthy lunch instead!

we went to eat at a fast food restaurant but all they had was stuff with chicken or bacon or beef, no fish. But I've decided the only meat I'm consuming is fish and sea food. Was somewhat thinking of saying why not but chose not to have anything other than the frosty and some of my mom's fries

I got home late from errands, and was starving. Hugs had already eaten and planned to go to gym; no way I would be ready by that time. Now I am feeling drowsy and thinking about shirking the exercise. BUT I am not going to; I will go and do it NOW.

Well, got up early and did a nice 30 minute walk with my doggie. Next, I made myself a nice healthy b-fast. Well, guess what? 2 boxes of Dunkin Donuts were sitting in the office at work. Aaargh. I thumped the box and kept on walking. I'm avoiding that area today and all is good! emoticon

Well this day just went right by! and I still am not done with my errands.

I am tempted to just call it a day but I am not gonna; I am gonna get off here, and go do the errands since I decided we will have a simple nutritious dinner of pita pockets stuffed with peppers and broccoli salad mix with hummus and if desired, some smoked turkey.....later maybe some fruit. AND I am gonna go with HUGS to exercise tonight.....ST. Need to make it routine.

I had the fast food drive this AM on my way to work and a craving to boot. I just put on my blinders and drove on to work. My banana and peanut butter didn't do the trick so I had another banana mid morning. This got me to lunch. Now I feel sluggish and would love a nap---not today; too much to get done.

My biggest temptation was stopping somewhere to pick up a sandwich for lunch. I work for a Dr. office and am traveling between 2 offices today. Fast food row smelled so good, I wanted to stop. Instead, I rolled up my window and called hubby. Talked with him for a few minutes to say hi. I was past the temptation before I knew it and when I arrived at the 2nd office, I ate the spark lunch that I packed this morning.

HI, new here and:
1. What was your biggest temptation today?
NOT TO stop SPARKING and get ON with it

2. What was your healthy motivation to say "No" to that temptation?

I haven't yet, lol but I am gonna say it now; gotta get tootin' and have my to-do list ready. I think I need to establish a time slot with a limit here.

well the nestle drumsticks are gone, the revelos are gone, the peanut butter and chocolate ice cream cake is finished and so are the lindor chocoalte balls. so i dont really have any major temptations in the house in terms of eating things that taste good but throw my exercising efforts out the window. yesterday was a bingy day so I should be fine today. Today I will avoid temptation to over eat or eat when I dont need to by drinking water and keeping busy (lots planned to do today)

today i was planning my meals. Was wanting to have my usual dessert of greek yogurt, strawberries, almonds and maple syrup but that was going to put me over my limit so i changed it to just strawberries and a bit of chocolate syrup. Though in the end after lunch and munching on social teas earlier, when I woke up from my nap I wasn't hungry. so i didnt eat. now its after 8 and i have a rule not to eat after 8.

today's temptation was a bag of nacho cheese chips. i resisted that and had some tasty crisps that i got from weight watchers the other day. that satisfied my craving for something munchy with some flavor.

i am so happy that my cousin annie, known as mommy445, has joined sparkpeople. we were born about a year apart and we are best friends.

When I saw your group I knew I had to join because I suddenly realized that giving in to temptation was what was holding me back! I guess I had an aha! moment! I do great most of the day, but these insideous little tempations creep in until I have so few "points"(I do Weight Watchers) left that I sometimes blow my day. Today, I passed up a midmorning snack that I totally didn't need, and reheated my coffee instead. After I relaxed and overcame my temptation, I decided on a rational healthy snack of a 1 point lofat cheese stick. Now its lunchtime and I can allow myself to have a sensible healthy lunch without having blown my day before it was half over. So glad I found this forum; its just what I needed, and needed to share my problem. What was I tempted by? Any unknown food substance that was handy that I could stuff in my mouth to fill the moment. emoticon
