It's the little things sometimes...

Thursday, October 04, 2018

...:::as you can see from the writing, this chocolate treat is a MINI sized treat. You're thinking, "There's no harm in this." I'd agree with you. You're right; there isn't any harm in it.
Granted,it's a nice small treat to have on occasion.

You see::::....

I was planning to eat this mini chocolate after lunch one day last week. Forgot about it.
It sat alone on my dresser for 2 days. emoticon ...:::such disinterest in chocolate is PROOF that my cravings have indeed changed. I ended up putting it back in the candy box. emoticon
There's nothing wrong with enjoying chocolate, but for me it served a powerful purpose in teaching me a lesson - that it doesn't matter. Lol! emoticon emoticon The disinterest is phenomenal!

There are other stories just like this one that are further proof my mind is being transformed day by day. I am still maintaining that 5# loss, and look forward to the scales dropping further.

But for now, I am HAPPY! My mind is made up, and for now that alone is powerful. I know from past experience that if my mind is strong, I can do anything. I'm not holding myself back anymore. My fitness daily routine is steady and I am eating cleaner every day.

    SO proud of you!!!! It's like you were writing this blog just for me emoticon Chocolate is my downfall. I would LOVE to get to a point where it just didn't carry such power over me anymore. So grateful that you shared this "little" achievement because it shows me that it IS possible emoticon Keep up the AWESOME work and thank-you for always inspiring me! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations! You can do your victory dance! Resisting can make you feel just as satisfied as you had felt when you ate the chocolate! Thanks for the inspiration! Waiting 5 Minutes when tempted has helped me. emoticon

    You did great avoiding the chocolate. Congratulations. If I'm truthful with myself, I doubt I could have done it. While one mini piece of chocolate would be okay for most, it is a trigger food for me and I would have a very hard time only having one. It's better for me to keep it out of the house.

    That is awesome! Chocolate can really be a weakness and you have won this battle!

    awesome! Resisting Ghirardelli chocolate for 2 days is definitely proof that you've gotten control of the craving! That is my kryptonite . . . that and Bodin's sourdough bread. Introduced to both of those while in San Francisco.

    Mental attitude and state of mind are HUGE! Congratulations on the progress achieved in support of your goals. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It is so interesting to see how the choices change when the cravings are put in check with consistent eating that supports a healthy balance in ones body. You're doing great!

    Glad to see you had good will power. But a mini of a piece of chocolate (dark) can be ok.

    I've always believed that the most important change we can make regarding our weight and health is to change our mind! The battle starts there.

    I recently saw a dip in weight followed by a rise in weight and I wondered if the rise meant I was going to lose the maintenance battle because I felt powerless to stop it. A fellow sparker commented on a blog I wrote that I knew what to do to stop the weight gain which challenged me to ask myself if I really believed that!. I realized that I DO know what to do and I've started doing it and seeing it show up on the scale!
