I am feeling discouraged. Today I felt like I would like to eat a cinnamon roll from Cinnabon. Not with all the gooey cream cheese frosting, but just the cinnamon roll. Of course, I did not go find one. But I did eat two pieces of dark chocolate.
I think I need to weigh myself every two weeks instead of every four. I think it would be encouraging if I could see that weight is coming off.
I am proud of husband tonite. He said there were donuts at work today, but he did not eat one. And it was not even a struggle. One man asked, are you sure you don't want a donut? Husband replied, "No thanks, I don't eat that way anymore!"
Husband commented that it is one thing to say 'no thank you I am on a diet', and a completely different idea altogether to say 'I don't eat that way any more'. A diet is temporary, with an eventual return to consumption of all foods. A change in lifestyle is more permanent, a commitment to refrain from unhealthy foods permanently. This is a great lesson to remember.
