*sorry to everyone who sent a paypal payment. I tried to set up a special account just for this, but it wouldn't let me verify my account and accept your payments, since I already have another paypal account. SO SORRY. I made a new button on the right to go into my regular account.
Sorry you have to do it twice!
Time to check in with all the 11-11-11 Losers. :) Is it offensive that I'm calling you losers? I'm trying to compliment you, and send you positive subliminal messages...You CAN and WILL lose weight.
Anyhow, I've been doing well for the past Day and a half. Lots of water, no sugar yesterday (BIG for me). Today, I did well, until 4:32pm. The hour before dinner. It seems to be my weak point of the day. Everyone is home, scrambling to get the last of my things done before we shift to dinner/bedtime mode. I'm hungry. I COULD have grabbed an apple. I COULD have grabbed some carrot sticks. I attempted about 3 to divert my chocolate cravings to a cup of Chocolatey Chai tea (only available in Canada, sadly, for this american girl). It worked for a bit. Then, I opened the cupboard. In a moment of poor judgement, I snagged a handful of mini marshmallows. It's a slippery slope...then, a few chocolate chips. UGH. I've been good about not buying "junk"...so all I have left is baking ingredients.
But, I hope to have reeled it at that point. It's been 10 minutes so far. Ha Ha! I'm pathetic.
But, I'm also determined to drop 11 pounds. I feel like it will help me in my running, to just feel, well, lighter. Funny how that works.
Dinner is looking good, though. Oven roasted chicken and carrots and potatoes. I keep telling myself, have a cup of tea. It feels you up, tastes sweetish. Keeps my fingers and lips busy from snacking on something I should avoid.
What is your strategy to avoid the munchies?really, please share!
What is your weak point in the day where you find yourself mindlessly eating?Mine, is clearly, the hour before dinner. I need some of that Dessert Gum! No, really, I need to untrain the "need" for something sweet.
Keep at it, Ladies. The pot is growing! I think we're up to 13 gals now! Keep your eye on the prize...the real one. Being healthy and fit!
