In the past couple of weeks, I’ve had cookies, ice cream, pie, chocolate, ice cream sandwiches, soda…at least one of those things every day. And, largely because it is the last week of “summer,” I had a drink like every night.
Anyway, I need to not do this. I feel like a blob! I’m posting here to make “going back to healthy” official 🙂
Anyone have tricks they use to get back on the healthy wagon/curb the sugar and fat withdrawl?

A piece of choc. when i get a sweet craving! I have some of the individually wrapped mini hershey chocolates and when i get a sweets craving i have one or two- just enough to satisfy! And getting started is the hardest part but once you get into the swing of eating good again you wont crave the fattening stuff as much and if you do try to eat it again it tastes gross! Plus you end up feeling like you said “a blob” after eating those things.
Two other things help a lot
1. Working out is a big thing because when i am working out and i try to eat something fattening i remember how much effort it takes to burn those extra calories!
2. Heart disease is in my family and i remind myself of the benefits of taking care of myself will bring now and later in life!

Ugh, I feel you! I have this problem about once a month; how fun it is to be a lady, right?
The thing that helps most is working out, partly because it helps me feel a little better, partly because it’s a good reminder that it’s hard work burning off calories, and partly because it is a distraction! it’s hard to get started, but it does feel good when you do!

What helps me most is telling myself that I just need to go one week without (whatever I have been eating way too much of) and then I can eat it again. Usually, by the time the one week is up, I don’t want to ruin how good I feel. If I do indulge, it’s at a much lower rate since my body isn’t used to eating so much sugar or salt anymore.
