to so I'm not tempted to dip in the Halloween candy that sits on the dispatch desk. Last week every time I came in from a tour I would snack one or two mini candy bars...I'm sure that added up!
:o So glad I found JUDDD! I think I can do this!
These two parts of your post seem like the perfect illustrations of how slimmer people think and act, and how heavier people see *it* and react.
You making the choice of bringing something lovely and chocolate and S/F and on plan to help you on your Down Day is another perfect example of how we can choose to NOT undo our weight loss, over and over and over again by poor choices, and instead just make the choices that will help us enjoy a slim and healthy future.
It's not that you can't ever eat candy. It's that you don't do it today, because this is a DD. And maybe tomorrow you will enjoy a piece of candy, because it's an UD. But, then again, maybe you won't. You won't need to feel the COMPULSION to eat it, just because it's sitting there, because, after all, you have a whole future of Up Days ahead of you. If you don't eat it right now, you can always fit it in someday in the future.
I'll bet you'll do well on JUDDD. Some really good choices already.
