Well I have decided...

Sunday, November 28, 2010

I have been trying to think of how to eat junk food in moderation, because I am afraid of the "bet you can't eat just one phrase". I am afraid that it might put me back to square one where I want it everyday again. But I think I have it worked out.

The other day a lady dropped off some cookies(a whole bag) for the kids. I divided them up between all the kids and there was 2 left over. I ate them. I looked at this as moderation and it was the only cookies left in the house as there was no way I was able to eat more of them.

Then today I had somewhat of a binge day, due to that time of a woman's month. Anyways, I went out and got a small bag of chips. I felt like I was letting myself down but then told myself I will have a small bag at this once a month time. This will be moderation.

The strangest thing is, I don't feel like I need to have more. I am still with the program. Although I need to go through more of the SP recipes because I feel like I need more taste. I feel like I eat the same stuff and it is becoming boring to me. Going to get some spices other than garlic and start trying some new stuff!

    I feel the same way. During my time of the month I crave things horribly!! I have done the same thing as you the past few months and allowed myself to have a snack size serving of what I am craving and have surprisingly found it satisfying. I have noticed thought that the next few days the cravings are worse than ever, so I am mindful of that and try to distract myself to get through or else I end up binging for days on end!

    Keep up the good work!! emoticon

    It sounds like you're doing great to me. I have trouble during that TOM too! Chocolate becomes my best friend.

    I am working on the moderation thing too! Not that I am overeating, but I am scared too of starting! So, I generally just avoid or wait until there is only so much left and I know I can't just keep eating something. I truly believe that I don't have to deny myself all the time, I just don't trust myself enough yet! Let me know if you find any secrets!

    I think it is important to learn moderation.
