It is so easy to talk yourself into eating something you shouldn’t to satisfy an immediate need. It is heroic to say NO! If you don’t have the crap in the house, you won’t be able to eat it. Throw it out. Don’t wait to start your diet until you’ve eaten it all… donate it, just get it out of your house. You’ll feel good about it… I promise you 🙂
Totally agree! Living with high carb foods in your house makes this journey far more challenging than it needs to be. Having all the right foods accessible makes this so do-able!!
I think it’s easier for me because I live alone and don’t have to feed anyone else 🙂 But I think removing the bad carbs ends up being good for everyone in the house!
Trying very hard to eliminate food from fridge and pantry. It ain’t easy but doable.
Sandi – this is a great message to take home! Waiting until the food is gone to start is simply an excuse. Like you – I donated the food I had an replaced it with healthy alternatives. If the bad stuff is not in the house – I am simply not going to run out and get some. Self control also plays a role. Being able to say “I am in control of this and then demonstrating this control makes a great difference. Love your blog!!! Thank you.
Thank you for stopping by! I enjoyed perusing your blog the other day. “The Road Not Taken” (often called the road less traveled) is one of my favorite poems ever and the term drew me to your site, as well as your terrific weight loss. I look forward to more of your posts!
Thank you Sandi! I am now a faithful reader of your blog and love your style of writing as well as your story! Keep writing and telling us what is happening with your journey. Great pictures too! I will be adding some pictures to my blog soon as well as video. I am just learning Word Press after migrating an old blog from blogspot to Word Press. I should understand all the options soon. I also just listed your blog on my blogroll (I figured out how to do that).
