One of my students brought donuts yesterday from my favorite local bakery for his birthday. I felt like my life would END of I didn't have just one. I could smell them from across the room. But I didn't have one. And it was a HARD decision.
I dread going to Kroger because the Halloween Cadbury eggs are out, and also candy corn. Both are binge items and both make me feel happy to my soul when I eat them.
I'm not exaggerating either.
But I know I will just have to fight those battles as they come along. Food addiction (any addiction) is hard to beat. Three weeks is just a drop in the bucket to how much time I'll actually need to get really clarity and maybe some good weight loss.
That's why I still think ordering the food and making that commitment was a good idea. My food choices are made for me when I'm too weak to do it myself. And it also keeps me out the grocery store more often. I do a weekly trip to Aldi for the kids groceries and some salad fixings for me and that's usually it.

Also a few pics of my favorite foods this week...
I've been eating a big salad for lunch each day... with some kind of chopped chicken.
I'm loving the maple sausage. And I don't even like sausage, lol.
For dinner each night I'm doing two veggies and a meat.
And FYI... the garlic sauce provided with the meals is crack for veggies. I love it!
