The only way to stay on this path is constant vigilance. A planned baked potato is one thing, a handful of chocolate chips is something TOTALLY different. It's like me thinking I could have ONE cigarette after I quit smoking. WAS I CRAZY??? Yes, crazy with addiction, which leads to lack of honesty with self, and an abandonment of common sense.
No one will know.
I can have just one.
I've done so well, I've come sooooo far, I deserve it.
These 3 statements along with many others reflect my lack of honesty. I used to consider myself an honest person...I don't take things that don't belong to me, etc. but this year, I am dissecting MY honesty with MYSELF. I've just had an epiphany that this is truly a different ballgame. This is MY year. My year to maintain. My year to be happy. My year to be grateful. My year to consider all my honesty.
