I am always amazed at how easy it is to let excuses get me off track. A busy schedule, cravings (and I have had a LOT of those this week), demanding kids, etc, etc, etc. I'm sure my list is very similar to others' out there in this vast Universe! Cravings are nasty
My challenge for all those wonderfully creative food people out there - make cheesecake, chocolate, or cream cheese frosting on graham crackers have the exact same nutritional content as carrots. Wouldn't that be great?!?! The fact of the matter is, I LOVE those foods and can't really imagine a life without them. BUT, I also have to control myself and not eat more than one serving. *SIGH* I know, I know, moderation. Some days, I hate that word! But,
I just have to remember, it is NEVER too late to put myself back on track. Even if it is in the middle of a gigantic doughnut! I can feel empowered, stop, and move forward again on the right track. THAT feels great! AND should be acknowledged.
See, the idea of losing weight IS simple. The execution is NOT easy.
