So I'm an impulsive eater, when I have money. I'll be out, and if I have money on me, my mind starts going "Where can I eat/drink? Starbucks for a coffee? Chinese food? Burrito? Buy some Cheetos at the 7-11?" and so on. Well, I have a $20 bill in my backpack, and on my drive home today I started thinking about stopping at 7-11 for a cheap latte - I make this horrible high-calorie concotion I love, with mostly french vanilla cappuccino from the machine, with a liberal sprinkling of cocoa powder, a shot of caramel praline creamer, and a handful of mini-marshmallows - on my way up to my apartment from downtown. I did that the other day, after buying my books at the bookstore in the same strip mall as the 7-11, got a Latte of Doom and a bag of Cheetos and scarfed it all that afternoon.

But I remembered that, almost EVERY time I "impulse eat" like that, I feel really crappy about it afterwards. So I bargained with myself, reasoning that if I was already arguing with myself so much it couldn't possibly be a good thing, and decided to go straight home, placating my inner "gimme!" with remembering that, if I still wanted it so bad in an hour or two, it's not that far from my house and I could walk to get one.

AND I DROVE STRAIGHT HOME! That's the first time I've consciously stepped in to reign in that kind of impulse noshing. Yay!

Way to go!!! I have much the same problem as you. When I have money, I eat.

Somehow I've had the willpower these past few weeks. I don't know how I've done it, but I've done it.



Great job to you. I know how hard it is. Keep up the awesome work!!!

Great job, I have found that I cheat sometimes when I'm out just because I have cash on me too. But, it happens less and less since starting my program and I'm more likely to think, "Hmm, no one will know, but that darn scale will know the next time I get on it". Then, I drive on home and eat something that is on program instead. WTG on passing up the junk food.

That's great, I have that same problem, except I have my mom pushing me along so it's twice as hard! I'm not blaming her, it's my choice- so I'm trying to eat salads when we eat out.
