Default I'm in brownie ****!!!

So let me clarify that Brownies are my favorite food.

Last night I went to a purse party, among other things they had were brownies. I was a good little giral and didn't have any. Then I come into work and walk by the kitchen and there staring me in the face are a whole plate of brownies. AHHHHH!!! I was in there getting water and I stared at that plate. They look perfect. I thought...Can you imagine how happy that would have made me before. A whole plate of brownies for the taking and there is hardly anyone in the office today, so I could have lots. And I would have eaten lots, all day long. I would have made myself ill on them and I would have been happy.

Today I am taking the high road, I will not have any. I won't even look up the calories on them. I cannot start or I will not stop.

I am in Brownie ****!!!

The Secret is: CONSISTENCY

to you for passing up the brownies last night!! Stay strong today, Sandi. You can do it!! Imagine them covered with vomit or diesel or something really nasty. Can you get someone to cover them up? I read that people eat less candy when it's in a covered jar than they do when it's sitting out in the open.

chocolate is the devil on my shoulder most of the time!

this is how I try to look at it to help that temptation, and I hope that it helps you: I picture in the world all the chocolate there is, tons of it really, every variety there in the stores for me to buy any time I want. Barring a major disaster, it will be there in the stores for the rest of my life. Tons of it. So, I don't have to have that piece in front of me because I have another goal right now. The chocolate will wait until I'm ready and it suits me to have it. (kind of nice to think there's that much chocolate, heh heh)

Good for you Sandi!! It doesn't mean you can't ever have brownies again, for right now, you choose not to. It's your choice, that's what gives you power.

Oh Sandi I know just how you feel. I hate it when there is food at work. We are having a pot luck tomorrow so I know there will be stuff there. The only good thing for me is that I'm second shift and most of it will be gone. They still leave chips and and cookies though.

You can do this. I know how hard it is but you can win the battle.

Way to go Sandi ~ you are awesome ~ doing great!!
One day at a time ~ never giving up!!

Nobody can force you to have a certain attitude. But life will go so much better if you will simply choose to be positive. When you wake up, choose to be happy. Choose to be grateful for the day. (Joel Osteen)

Sandi, I bow down to your willpower! How great that you did not eat the brownie! I am that way as well, I just can not stop at one bite. Marge, I love your analogy of how the chocolate will be there later!

Sandi that is awesome you turned them down. You are doing great by refusing them today. If you feel your resolve start to slip, think of something you could possibly have tomorrow and plan it into your day for then. Not only will it help to keep you on plan it will give you something to look forward to tomorrow.

It's so great to hear people in control of those urges! I am feeling less in control this week. I haven't completely given in or anything, but I certainly hear the siren song of the snacks!
