  • became all to weak :(

    *too is what that should have read...sorry my fingers type too fast for my own good.


    I held strong on Halloween with the candy, but failed majorly yesterday and today. Yesterday was my son's birthday party and I was hoping he would want ice cream cake for dessert, but he wanted regular cake. So I bought myself a slice of cheesecake to help fight off the urge. I ate the cheesecake and then buckled to some snickers and almond joys and then some cookies and candy corn. Then today I said that was it, we won't mourn we will just move on...and then I fell again tonight...guess where all that candy is going tomorrow...to work with the husband. I can't have it "laying" around. It has been too tempting.

    Of course I have needlessly beat myself up over this. I am going to press on. It is a lifestyle not a diet. Just needed to confess.

    It's hard, isn't it? I had a megafail late Halloween night after the kids brought home their candy. THe devil Reese's called my name... and one leads to many others. I decided that I had to just let it go and figure it in my 20% (I've been SOOOOOO clean for a few weeks now!!) I still find myself getting upset at myself about it... silly.

    Move on. Let it go. Be human

      Lori - don't beat yourself up. It isn't worth it. No one is perfect and we are all human. Just dust yourself off and get back with it. It is a lifestyle and every baby step in progress brings strength.

      Your thread title scared me. I thought it was an "I quit" thread.

        Thanks Moo and lolov, I was discouraged this morning but not out yet...pushing forward, it really is a stupid thing to get upset about. I also just read the carb refeed post from the other day and totally just made me feel better about my weakness to the candy.

            Life happens, momo, get rid of the triggers and reattack; that's all we can do sometimes.
            My whole life, I've felt like an animal......but I've ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. That will never happen again.

                Also with candy and other such things I find that "out of sight out of mind" works well for me. And for my wife I just put them up in the cabinets over the fridge, she's way too short to reach them

                  I failed on Halloween too, and my wedding anniversary... and my brother's wedding. I'm doing ultra low carb for a few days to get rid of the cravings and get back on track. Hubby is keeping the left over Halloween treats in his car so I won't get to them

                    mom... be kinder to yourself. I think all too often we all strive for perfection in things, especially having to do with diet and/or exercise. The nice thing about primal is that it's not all about perfection... 80/20 and all that. Think about all of the good eating you're doing now that you weren't... consider all of the improvements you've made and how far you've come. Try to step away from the "I ate something I shouldn't so I've failed" mentality (which is hard, don't get me wrong, as it's everywhere around us this illusion of perfection). Or think of it as a reminder... wow, that's what I used to eat more often and no wonder I didn't feel good?

                    But above all else, don't make yourself feel bad about it... just chalk it up to experience and move on to a new day!
