A weak moment.





Sometimes we try our best and sometimes…NUTS!

Yes, I did finish off the entire container. I’m not proud of it, but I learned from it.

I learned that this doesn’t make my husband, my Mom or my dog love me any less. All of whom I spoke to in tears after my binge. I am not a Super Human. I will fall. The feeling of total fullness and bloat does not bring me the lulled satisfaction it once did. Sometimes I will make mistakes. I learned that I probably shouldn’t bring trigger foods into my home because they do just that. They trigger me to binge eat. I know this. I guess I just needed a reminder.

We all have bad days, nights or weeks. It happens, I know that. I just wanted to be honest with you about mine.  Weak moments can be just as important as great ones, we can learn a lot from them.

Have you had a weak moment recently? Did you learn anything from it?

The husband was not harmed in the making of this blog post. He was safely away from allergens at work.

weak moments? more like weak months... the past few have been horrible... you know, though, i've heard that sometimes, when you overeat one particular food, it was because your body really needed the health benefits from it... that could apply in your case - maybe you were craving the protein or healthy fats from the nuts? or maybe they just tasted that good... either way, good job on not letting it get you down too far :)

you make me laugh...and nod my head.
The weak moments.
The choices we look back and think "MEH I wish id not made those"
all come together to make us who we are.
and we are only as far from our path as our next choice.

I have been having a difficult time lately making good choices. I'm working too much...stressed out...not enough time in the day! I'm just trying to be nice to myself after I eat 1/2 a package of chocolate chip cookies. I haven't had a month like this in a very long time, but I'm completely tired of feeling yucky and bloated and gross. Ugh.
So, today is a new day...we'll both be fine. =)

oohhh Tonyne! Big HUGS! I have a list of foods (in my head) that there is NO way that can be here at home. I'm not satisfied with a small handful, or a measured out portion. I need to eat it till it's gone! SO weird- yet so understandable huh? Do not beat yourself up- today is a NEW day, movin on! :)
For me I just recently battled with leftover macaroni salad that I made.I did not want to take any home- I gave containers of it away and then my BF accidently took the wrong bag home and we ended up with some salad. I gave him some with his lunch but the next day I had to take a scoop- I guessed with the points because I do not measure when I make that and I kept wanting a second scoop= directly from the bowl to my mouth...and I kept wanting more. I FINALLY did what I wanted to do- I THREW IT AWAY! GONE! No more issues. lol Sometimes that is what I need to do! :) It's a new WEEK- without macaroni salad OR nuts! :) xoxo

I use to get Subway cookies with my meals...then I stopped b/c I realized that one cookie had 220 calories in it. Last week - I had a couple of them. I'm not upset over that b/c I allow myself to have a sweet -- It was probably just too much of a sweet. I craved them for like 3 days after.

I think you hit the nail on the head when you said don't bring in things that will trigger you to eat too much. I used to buy those bags of mini oreo cookies (I want to say there are 7 servings in each bag)...and yes, I have single handedly in the past eaten the whole bag! So, when I pass by things like that in the store now, I don't even put it in my cart. I used to say I was buying it for my kids, but they hardly got any! The most important thing is to move on and forget about it!
