Finally doing me.........and it feels so good

Monday, May 09, 2011

Over the last several months I've told myself over and over again that it's time to get serious about losing weight. And each time I knew it wasn't going to work. So why is this time different? I can tell when my head is in the right place and it is now. One of my biggest hurdles is work. You know those people who are always bringing food to work? Well, I share my office with one of those. She's always bringing goodies, or even whole meals. This morning she brought a huge box of Lamar's donuts (oh god, they are my favorite!). When asked if I wanted one, I simply said no thank you. And it was sooooo easy!!! As I was thinking about it on my way home, I felt really good about that and the other choices I made so far today. And that is FOR ME, no one else. And that feeling was so much better than the momentary satisfaction I would've gotten from any donut.

    emoticon It gets easier with practice! One of my part-time jobs is a church secretary and someone in the congregation is always bringing goodies by. The best thing you can do is to have healthy alternatives handy. It does give you a great sense of accomplishment! emoticon emoticon
