One of my bad former habits was to stop every day on the way to work (I don't work every day) for coffee and donuts.

I really went to town on those donuts-- in fact, I didn't actually buy donuts, I bought the huge coffee rolls. Normally, I ate three. So every day, on the way to work, I was stuff, felt vaguely ill, and left sticky fingerprints on my steering wheel. Yuck.

Driving past that stop on the way to work was one of the big challenges I used to face. Every time I got near, I had to remind myself "don't stop, don't stop..."

So, this morning, I was driving to work and I realized that I didn't have toll money and I needed to go to an ATM-- then I remembered that there was an ATM in the old donut place. So I think "great, I can get coffee..."

So I go in, and I think, wow, I haven't been in here in such a long time, I wonder if the shop people will notice I've lost weight.

Get my money, get in line to pay for my coffee. It wasn't until I was leaving that I realized-- I never even LOOKED at the case where the donuts were. I walked right past without even thinking about it.:carrot::carrot::carrot:

Nice job! Ah donuts... Never as good as you imagine they're going to be and always make you feel like a zombie for hours afterward.

Ain't that the truth donuts always sound good to me, yet they never taste as good as I remember them being...weird.

Turning down/walking away from food is one of the best NSV's there is. Being in control is a great feeling.

You've come way too far to let a doughnut call the shots!

Way to go! Stopping those unhealthy habits is soooo difficult. You should definitely be proud you're so strong! Keep up the good work!!!! :)

Aw, that is super!

I applaud you as I am a donut lover myself!

When I was living in California I would frequent a Mom & Pop Donut Place...

Oh my gosh walking in there was pure heaven for me. The display cases loaded with so many varieties of donuts.

At one time I even contemplated opening up my own donut haven and calling it "Jelly's"....:)

Now that I live in the East Coast Dunkin Donuts is the primary donut place and I don't care for their selections.

So I am safe.

To not even think about it! Now that's a victory. I'd totally have been thinking about it.

And you've been at this "only" 6 months! Look at how far you've come! :carrot:

Yeah, they never taste quite as good as they should in theory huh? Too sweet, too bread-y... blech. Give me a peach! ;)

Congrats on this! Donuts are definitely very bad for you and it's great that you are not even tempted by them anymore.

good job!!

my rough spot is the line of fast food on my way to class, there's a Dunkin Doghnuts, a KFC, a Rally's, a McD's, a Taco Bell, a BK, a Arby's and a pizza place all within the mile or so between the highway and my small college. So i feel your pain and WISH that i didnt even think about it any more./ Go you!!!

Congrats, thats awesome news. Its funny the mental games we must play with ourselves, "don't stop, don't stop" :) - but hey, what ever works, right?

well, I love donuts....and they are always as good as I expect them to be but yes they make you feel horrible afterward...too much sugar....then you bottom out. I haven't eaten a donut in a couple of years myself. Now if I could stay away from the Hershey Kisses (sigh) lol!

WTG on your NSV!!!!!! Its amazing how things can change and how different you look at food! WTG!!!!! :carrot: :broc: :carrot:
