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!!
