I Didn't Do It!

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Today after I got off work, I came home mowed the yard did some laundry then I weighed and lost nothing. I was hungry and aggravated I made up my mind to go to the store and get something breaded and fried and something sweet and chocolaty. I walked in the store with full determination to do just that, after all I have lost 96 lbs! I said to myself and I have only got 29 more lbs to go Why not!!
As I was walking through the isles looking for exactly what I wanted going through the cookie and ice cream isle and then the breaded fating food. I could not bring myself to pick it up, but I deserve this I said to myself it's not going to kill you again I said to myself! After standing looking bewildered for awhile and other customers getting away from me because I was talking to myself, I thought Donna your falling in the same trap don't do it all the hard work for over a year, I know it's ok every once in awhile to eat something but not while your in this state you need to walk away. This is when I thought this is emotional eating . I then went to the produce section and bought 3 plums and some baby carrots. I then went home and enjoyed my expensive plums!!
Thanks to my spark friends I thought about all the support they have given me and I was not about to let them or myself down! I DIDN'T DO IT!!!

    Great comments! As a new member to Spark people reading messages like yours is very motivating and inspirational. Your comments about feeling you deserve a treat, it wont kill you, you've already done so well a treat is ok - these all sound so familiar. Your honesty helps me to face the truth, the food doesn't fix anything. It just makes me gain more weight, feel worse about myself and around and around I go! I am taking it one day at a time....I know I can stick to this for one day.....then tomorrow will be the next one day at a time. When I look at your results I realize that all the one days add up to great results. Congratulations to you!

    I passed up buying 50% Easter Candy today, which was a BIG thing for me. I love a bargain, and I love remembering all the fun I had at Easter, so lots of emotions there. Just told myself that being healthy was what matters. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon I am so proud of you!! That is fantastic! emoticon I am so glad you went with the fruit and veggies instead of the junk. It takes real willpower to turn down the sweets, and you sure have shown yourself you have the willpower! emoticon Keep up the wonderful work! BTW Plums are expensive, I bought some over the weekend and Whew! They are high, but good!
