My road to 125
So for New Years I gave up cake, candy, chocolate, and cookies because I am determined to get back to my weight of 125. I do not think I will actually make it to 125 but if I can at least make it back into my size 5 jeans that I love so much I will be happy. So far I have been a good girl; this has not been without difficulty. We are staying at a friend's house during her time of need and there are a lot of cookies left over from the holidays. My husband was suppose to give up smoking this New Year but because of his lose I am giving him leeway. So our friend's son tells me because my husband slipped up I can; trust me I thought of this idea. One problem, I am not doing this to compete with my husband; I am doing this for my own benefit. I want to be able to say I did this myself. In the beginning it is hard because my husband keeps eating cookies in front of me and every time I turn around I find containers of cookies. :tear: Yesterday we had wake for my husband's friend and our friend's husband; same person. I wasn't really hungry so I figured after I made my husband a plate I would check out the desserts. I had to mentally slap myself because I had forgotten I can't eat that stuff. Bummed out I continued to walk in the line to make my husband's plate. After I made my husband's plate; I had to walk past the dessert table to get to our table. I still wasn't hungry but I figured after everyone ate I would get something small from the dessert table. :slap: I did it again!!! Even though I kept forgetting I gave up all the yummy stuff until I have reached my goal; I did not react on my temptations. We left the wake and went back to our friend’s house because as I have said we are staying with her during her time of need. I was proud of myself because I had resisted my urges. I walked into the kitchen a little hungry and noticed and cardboard tray with tin foil covering it. I opened it wondering what I could eat out of it :SLAP: it's all cakes. Why me?
