Cravings or Habit?
Before I started trying to lose weight, I would eat a lot of those foods during this week leading up to TOM's visit and in large portions. Last night I calculated the points for a bag of peanut butter M&M's, right around 40 points for the bag. Quite often I would eat an entire bag of those in a day or two during this time of the month! WHOA!!! I never wondered why I was overweight, I was always aware of it, but now that I calculate points and see what I was putting into my mouth, I understand it even more and am appalled that I did that to myself! Yuck!!!
It was out of habit that I allowed myself to eat like that every month, TOM was an excuse to get away with it. No longer do I feel that way, though, but I still find myself craving those foods. I'm not giving into those wants, but they are there and they're hard to push away. I know that every time I push the desire away, the closer I will be to another pound lost. Someone once said that nothing tastes as good as being thin feels and I finally believe that!
