It was very hard for me to cook that and then eat something better for me. But, to gear myself up for it...I kind of get mad (not at myself or my family) but mad at the food and mad at my emotions that I let get me in this situation. I just tell myself- it is not going to control me anymore and take charge.
However, I have yo-yo'd here and there since I was a teenager. My major problem has always been -not always reaching my final goal and before I know it I am heavier than when I started, kinda thing. So, this time around it has to be a lifestyle change so this will be a slow process for me.
Good Job on the Cupcake situation!!!! I worked in an office full of goodies all the time and set down all day in front of a computer. I gained a considerable amount of weight doing that! The job was stressful...so when I was there I would eat all they had to offer then go home and eat some more. Those days are history!
