Talking Yay for Self Control!!!!!

I am sooooo proud of myself! Today was one of those days at work where something sweet and tasty was in my face. We had a mini birthday party with a chocolate fudge cheescake, OMG!!!! It looked soooooooo tasty and the staff in our department were making their oooohs and ahhhs about how good it was and I simply sipped my cranberry tea (tasty to me). The birthday girl was upset that I wasn't partaking in her birthday cake, but I simply explained its not something that I can eat.

Then one of my clients came in and she knew that I was out sick yesterday so she bought me a heart sugar cookie and told me that she hoped I felt better. Which was sooooo nice of her. She then presented me with a giant (I mean massive, must have weighed 2 pounds) chocolate chip cookie that was baked with oreos in it. Again delicious looking, but not something that I could eat, the thought was more valuable to me than the cookie. But I kinda wanted to eat the cookie. I ended up sharing with the staff and didn't eat any of it. . I also shared the sugar cookie with someone on staff, I didn't eat it either.

It was a hard and tempting day but I got through it! And I am proud!

Just thought I would share.

Thanks for the kind words ladies! Today I am wearing a sweater that hasn't fit me in years

Though the scale hasn't really moved in a while....It was a great confidence booster!!! a few small inches closer to my weightloss goal.

Woo-hoo! I had similar temptations yesterday and I gave in. A coworker made brownies and trudged through the snow to deliver them to the on-duty staff, and I just couldn't resist. It bumped me over my calorie goal. But I'm making up for it by eating less today, so I average out at my goal.

Emmyroo, its okay to slip up every once in a while. Your doing the right thing by getting right back to eating healthy. One day over your calorie limit isn't going to really hurt you. You can do this!

Thanks, Tavinni. It's amazing that I ate only 1400 calories yesterday, and yet I never felt like I was absolutely starving. Hungry, yes, but that's to be expected before my body realizes I'm not overeating anymore. Yay.

I am amazed by the fact that 1400 calories can fit so much food. LOL. 1400 calories was one meal for me sometimes. Now I am learning to space out 1400 calories over a day and my goal is 1600-1700 calories sometimes I can't even make it, which I think is good for my current body weight.


Thanks Liliann, you know whats funny I think that I am at a point where I really don't crave sweets. When I want something sweet I eat fruit or a granola bar. But I don't need a cookie or a piece of cake. Sometimes I have to remind myself when its in my face though.
