chocolate

by Cindy

yea i know i feel so bad, tired, fat, ugly, very unattractive,


i know what to do , i just think i have a addictive personality. and once i start, i do not stop.

i eat myself to sleep almost every night.

This is my slow time of year with work which also makes it worse.

i lose wieght. i lost 32 pds in Sept. then gained it all back.

like self defeat!! or something.

if i buy cookies , i have to eat them all till they are all gone.

the whole thing is a big merrygo round for me.

I have changed alot of things in my life for the good , but this one is so hard. and i get so mad at my self.

really, chips, milkshakes, cookies, all that is the killer.

i have no self control that lasts.

i would love to be healthy and look better for myself and my husband. i would love to feel awake.

I don't have alot of time to cook except in Jan. Feb. March.

Be Kind to Yourself
by: Suzette Kroll Barancik

Cindy,

Know that you are not alone...

Take a look at the list of foods that others have submitted as their killer foods. Notice a theme of chocolate and sweets in general.

Identifying which foods are "killers" or "diet busters" is the first step in establishing control around them. You know these foods are trouble for you, so consider implementing some strategies around them. For example, consider buying one big bakery cookie when you have a craving for cookies, instead of a whole bag which you know you will eat.

If you want a milkshake, consider ordering the smallest size and then enjoying the entire shake. While you might not think you should have it at all, isn't a small less damaging than a large?

You can read more about a healthy eating attitude at my healthy food page.

What I'm trying to say is:

Learn how to live WITH the foods you love, not WITHOUT. And most importantly...

...be kind to yourself. I can feel your frustration and pain through the internet waves :(

Fall down 10 times, get up 11. It's frustrating, I know, but you can do it!

Never, never give up.

Suzette
