I'm going to be the Queen of senselss posts today. .....

My boss just came by here and PUT VALENTINE CANDY ON MY DESK!!!!!!! She KNOWS I'm dieting.... grrrrrr I Messaged and her said "Are you trying to kill me?" You want me to stay fat???? lol She like as soon as I set it down she likes oh crap shouldn't have done that lol.

I got the following
Russell Stover Strawberry Cream candy
Box of Sweethearts
Russell Stover Variety candy box

Thank god they all have Nutrian facts on them. I was gonna give them back to her, but geeze after all it is Valentines day coming and I have my period. lol And I didn't eat that Boston Creme Bear claw screaming my name. lol I was able to come up with the points. It's two points each piece of chocalate candy and 2 points for the Sweethearts. I just ate teh Strawberry cream... Yummmmy. Since have no food today I"m doing really good on my points anyway.

So far today
Plain Oatmeal 2 points
Applesauce 1 Point
Smart One Alfredo Chicken pasta 4 points
100 Calorie popcorn 2 points
Strawberry Creme heart 2 points
11 Points total which is on target for a normal day, in fact I could eat the sweethearts and be right where I am for the day normally. :)

Oh and my company has birthday cakes once a month for eveyrone birthday in that month. I will NOT be participating lol I looked at the one cake and its was 330 calories and 19 grams of fat for a teny tiny pieces. LOL The guy that goes and gets them was looking at sugar free type cakes for us people who watch our figures but hasn't been able to find any with low calories for us. :(

So sorry everyone for my mindless topics today.

I can't believe I haven't dipped into the other candy. I put it in my desk but I know it's there. I was surprising satisfied by that one piece. I'm amazed, and happy. Only 45 more mintues to resist them lol

Man, you are WAY stronger than me!

I'm the type who either puts them in the trash and pours water on them, or eats the whole box.

Hold strong, sister.

I would share them with the rest of the office.

Me too! I would eat the whole box and then pick up some more on the way home from work. I just can not handle sugar. Once I got sugar out of my system, my cravings for it stopped. I found out the hard way that it does not take much sugar to get me craving it again. It is just easier for me to not have a bite than to have to beat the craving monster again!

You might find it helpful, in fighting cravings, to eat more protein and fat and fewer carbs; and to simply eat more, period. Your food list that you posted here, and another you posted elsewhere, contain very little protein. Also I am concerned that you may be eating far too little for your weight. Your points total for the day is only about 1650 calories (33) points and you say you're eating "well under" that. What you posted for today (11 points) is only about 550 calories of food, all the way through your afternoon snack.

I give stuff I don't want to eat away, it's not worth the mental energy to leave it sitting there and having to work at not being tempted. Once it's gone, I can stop thinking about it.

I get lots of treats at work. Any excuse to eat, they do, even groundhog day. Today, a day where there wasn't even a pre-planned eating thing, I got offered cookies twice and ice cream once. Usually I say no thanks but if it is someone that won't take no for an answer I put it in my drawer to offer to anyone who comes by and if no one takes it, I throw it in the trash. Good job not going on an eating fest.

Candy is NOT a mindless subject! :)
It can be eaten mindlessly, that's why we must consider it consciously! Good job resisting (and the cake too--I don't think I could resist that--luckily I'm rarely confronted with the temptation!
