Were you tempted this weekend?? I sure was….boy I tell ya, the smell of food has really been getting to me lately. Probably because I’ve been surrounded by delicious food all weekend!!
Every week when I meet with my doctor at the end of the session she always asks me about what challenges I may be having for the week…I sat there and thought about it and my answer..LIFE!!
Everyday is a stressful day for eating healthy…they have soooo many commercials and ads telling us about cookies, cinna buns, candy, burgers, happy meals, blah, blah, blah!!! How come we don’t have more ads about eating healthy & exercising…..no wonder we are all so unhealthy!!!
Anyway…..I guess I kind of went off my topic which is trying to keep remaining healthy on the weekends when the rest of your family is enjoying their
delicious disgusting, mouth watering, stomach turning, food!! So as always it was difficult for me this weekend…but I endured!!!! :). I had to actually take some pictures to show everyone what I passed up (maybe this will help someone on Thursday). 🙂
I didn’t eat anything!! I must say it was difficult but I prayed (of course) about it and then I focused on my health and how eating all of those things contributed to my weight gain…I could have ate a salad (that’s what I brought to the gathering) but I decided to stick to my plan and only consume my optifast products…I felt so good, I focused on me & how I was feeling about getting healthy… So this is what I had..
The best thing about it….I did it by choice…my choice!! I didn’t feel peer pressure to eat, I didn’t feel like an outsider eating my peanut butter bar, I felt in control of my surroundings & my addiction!! Also, hearing how good I looked with my weight loss was a HUGE motivator!! Even if no one else were to say it…I say it to myself…it keeps me sane (lol) and focused….so as always, 1-1,000 pounds…we can do it!!

Thanks…it was hard but I’m soo tired of feeling bad after I eat food that’s not good for me, I just said forget that lol!! I don’t celebrate but I hope you get through this week too!! 🙂
You go girl! You made it and now you can look back and be so PROUD of yourself. Was that at the talent show? I’m very proud of you, that is one of the hardest things for me is being around the food that I love so much, and trying to be good and do the right thing. But you did it!!!!
Yes it was the talent show…it was amazing as always lol. It was hard but I prayed & got through it. 🙂
I give you so much credit for being able to not eat anything!
