Thanks for the advice guys! I know that during the week I have all the resolve in the whole world. Once my honey gets home, I start to rationalize, "I've been so good, this one glass of wine won't hurt. I've been really good." But then as we all know, the glass of wine turns to two, that turns to a piece of cheesecake, which turns into a donut on Saturday morning... without me really thinking about it. Someone pointed out that a person having only 30 lbs to lose like myself is probably not struggling with a hardcore food addiction. And I'm not. I am like many people who just wants to look good in my old jeans and eat healthier. But sometimes your husband brings donuts home. Sometimes you drink a glass of wine. Sometimes your will power that you've had all week goes out the window because you're so damn happy to see your SO, who you haven't seen in 5 days, and you want to share some tastiness. I'm not condoning this at all. Just explaining what goes on in my head. But I just need to readjust my thoughts to say, "Wouldn't I rather look good at the end of the year instead of enjoying things now that slow me down?" That's all. I need to learn how to say no to temptation, which is everywhere. Not just at home. It's at Chick-fil-a when I drive by, its at the grocery store when I see the bakery, its at my sister's house when she has cookies made and my sweet nieces offer me one. We all have to learn how to deal with what is shoved in our face, even by the most innocent of sources.
No announcement yet.
Weekends are killing my attempts at progress!
