Unhappy Confession...

So yesterday was not good as far as eating. I have not been able to bring lunch to work because of time issues with shopping and yesterday I had girl scout cookies and chocolate cake. This whole no going with sweets thing is really hard for me. I'm seriously considering Weight Watchers, although right now I cannot pay for the meeting fees I know people who have done it and am hoping to be able to get tips from them about how to do it. I know I just need to pick up and move on (I seriously think it's because I'm close to my menstral cycle, I crave chocolate like no other during this time) but I do not want to make excuses for myself. I am still in control, I made the choice to eat those things and in the future I will either make the choice not to or to have far less than I did yesterday. Ok, just needed to get that out so it doesn't fester, thanks everyone!

As long as you don't let it stop you from your goal. We all slip up every now and then. I know around my menstrual time, my appetite increases A LOT and sometimes I give in...but then I remember I can't let it stop me. I am sure you will do fine, just stay determined & good luck!!

Don't beat yourself up. Having zero treats would not work for me. I've tried that before and found that if I did give in then it would spur on a binge. That's just me so I adjusted my plan to have treats in moderation keeping my goal in mind. I have no cheat days or anything like that. Just watching my calories in and out. Only you know what works for you, but I hate to see you get down on yourself for having a not-so-perfect day.

Today is a new day!

I'm doing pretty ok today, I am going to factor in allotted sweets so that I don't end up binging or feeling guilty. Thanks gals!

You can't help a sweet tooth, but there are healthier sweet things you can eat to help curb your cravings without doing much damage. Here's some examples:

-A piece of hard candy
-A fudgsicle
-A small serving of sherbert
-yogurt
-jello
-granola bar
-fruit, fresh or frozen. I love putting blueberries and grapes into the freezer and eating them frozen.
-Italian ice
-2 low fat oreos (take them out of the container and then put it away out of reach)

hope this helps.
