This week we have received lots of Christmas goodies and I convinced myself that a bite or two wouldn't hurt anything because, after all, Christmas only comes around once a year, and I was practicing moderation, right? And although I knew that even a few bites would send me over the limit on my daily sugars, I assumed it would be ok IF it was just that one time, and IF, I got myself right back on track.
Well one bite turned into two and before I knew it I found myself wanting to finish the entire chocolate carmel apple later in the evening - and I did! My sugar cravings are coming back - seriously - that quickly!
I need to take the Belly Fat Cure diet more seriously...... After all, LOTS of people are losing LOTS of weight by following it - and it's healthy - and it's satisfying - and it works!
Eventually I will not feel deprived. But for now, it's really hard. Honestly, I set myself back by justifying a few bites here and a few bites there. But it's going to be black and white for me now baby - no more being in the gray area!! I kid you not, when I say, watch my numbers start changing BIG TIME now that I am going to stick to the plan and not allow myself more than 15 sugars a day! NO MORE EXCUSES!!!!!
Whew! Now that I've gotten that off my chest, I have to admit that it's killing me not to have any photos in my posts. I spent sometime last night experimenting with different blog/template layouts and learning how to upload photos. I'm still playing around with finding something I like so don't be surprised if the look of my blog changes frequently..... until I settle on something I like.
Back to the photos.... My husband and I were running a little late getting ready for the Christmas Party last Friday, so no pictures that night. I scoured the photos that I had and realized that I was not in one photo at Thanksgiving (since I was taking all of them)! Isn't that how it works - We'd rather stay behind the camera, rather than in front of it, when we don't like the way we look. Anyways, the first photo I am posting was taken in October during our family trip to Disneyworld.
It is really hard for me to post photos of myself right now. I really want to wait until I have the "after" photo to post next to it. But, like I said, I hate not having photos to share and this is who I am right now! The next photo really showcases my tummy. No.... I am not pregnant.... and that is why the Belly Fat Cure diet is perfect for me!!!!
Now, I'm off to get my booty in gear and STICK TO THE PLAN - NO MORE EXCUSES HERE!!!
Have you ever "justified" a bite here and a bite there, and found yourself returning to your old eating habits?
