Constant vigilance

Sunday, January 13, 2013

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.

The baked potato

Friday, January 11, 2013

It's been over a year since I had a baked potato. I ate a whole one for supper last night, along with butter and sour cream...I couldn't stop at 1/4...I couldn't stop at 1/2...I couldn't even leave one bite on my plate.

That's the addiction.

Now today I won't eat a potato at all, and not tomorrow, and not the next day and not for probalby another year, or maybe never at all....only time will tell. But one thing is for sure, even though that potato had a grip on me last night, it's got no residual power today.

    Good for you. I hope you enjoyed your treat. I love your positive attitude about today being a new day. I have not had a potato in a year or two.

It's the new year again

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

It's the new year again, and somehow I've eaten toooo much at Christmas AGAIN! I know one year it will not happen, but it wasn't this year.

I will NOT give up.

    Today is a new day..You can get those pounds off from Xmas. The holidays are very stressful with so much food and socializing! Do something good for yourself today. You deserve to be happy and healthy.

Eating events

Sunday, December 23, 2012

I think life is a series of "EATING EVENTS" for which I must be constantly prepared.

    I agree. The key is that we constantly face eating events and have to plan how to stay healthy while attending them. It sure seems busy now.
