Don't throw it to the wolves!! You can still turn the day around by NOT eating anymore of them today. I know how HARD it is to not eat them, or limit them once I've gotten the taste in my mouth (drools over donuts) but really, you have to ask yourself why you really want them (other than the fact that they taste good). Think how your exercising could burn off the extra calroies leading to that extra lbs rather than burning the extra ones you caved in to.
Once you eat a little sugar, your body starts this vicous cycle of craving MORE sugar..it's like the ripple effect in the pond. So, maybe what you can do instead of eating all the sugary sweets is make a healthy equivalent in bulk and freeze the extra, then when you start to crave them, defrost and tadaa! I had to do that this week because I've had major raging cravings for icecream. After blasting through two icecream sandwiches last week in one sitting, I realized I needed a solution or I'd fail to reach my goal and set myself on a vicous sugar craving cycle. So, I spent an evening making fat free, sugar free strawberry frozen yogurt, sweetened with stevia. What kicks butt about it is...I can eat 173 grams of it for roughly 100 calories..NO fat no sugar..so if later I want a second serving..I don't feel guilty at all!! It's a good size bowlfull
You made a choice to lose weight right? So you have to decide how commited you are to it.
There's a quote at the bottom of one of the ladies (cjohnson) signatures that I LOVE!! It says something like "If you drop an egg, you don't say, 'Oh, shoot' and drop the other 11, do you?"
This is soooo true...many of us will say Oh Shoot and just drop them all, and buy another dozen the next day...We eat the junk, and the next day say we'll 'start over' but it also becomes a habit if you havn't sorted out why you're willing to give up in the first place. Figure out exactly why you're crqaving it so badly, why you're willing to let yourself cave, and battle that.
For me, I write down in front of my computer on a paper the calories I burn every day, and the calories I eat. Then I subtract to get the deficit and write it in a list so I can see it at all times. I total them each day so I can see my number progress of calories burned for the week. If I have a bad day I can see that I ate 500 calories or so which kept me from reaching that 1 pound mark for the week, and it motivates me to stick to my guns. Do I really want that piece of cake or do I want that 1 lb. loss? (I can totally eat an entire cake in one sitting)
You are a strong person, you made the choice to lose the weight. You put your best foot forward, and made the efforts to work on YOU for YOU..So, You have the strength to say no to sugary foods, or even to limit it. Again, try to find out why you let yourself cave into them, and try to nip that in the bud.
(As well as emotional binge eating, I do psychologial tricks on myself that allow me to coax myself into bad treats, but I always regret it later lol, so now I keep my list to knock some sense into myself)
I can also give some recipes which are healthier substitutions for common sweets like donuts, cakes, icecreams etc. I've experimented a bit this year, and rescently learned to make them in bulk rather than small servings lol
I know you can fight the good fight!! You really deserve to have the best of health! (Sorry for the Looong novel)
