Don't try to reason with yourself-
But I spent GOOD HARD MONEY on this stuff! Yes you did. So now that you recognize that get rid of it. Give it to some neighbors, friends, grandchildren or whoever will take it- just get rid of it!
Another good excuse is-What if I only eat one piece a day? WRONG!!! You and I both know that will not happen!!!
Well this package isn't open so I can keep it right? WRONG!! Because once that package is opened guess what it falls into excuse number 2.
I am sure there are others, but these are my biggest three.
If you are a mom or grandma and have young children around your story and situation will be different. I am not in this situation, so any comments are welcome!! I have thought how I would go about this and I would get a plastic bin with lid and put the sweets in them. I have also found in the past if I put them up high, or down low when I have to work to get to them, it helps. Ideas on this one?
What about the Soda? I am not a big soda drinker BUT I have realized when ever I am in a store it was very easy to say, “Oh that sounds good” and pick one up on the way out. For me soda is more of a habit than an addiction; but still it needs to be broken.
Maybe you are the one saying, “Laura more power to you!!! I need to cut down on them but I am not giving them up!!” Have you thought about designating one day a week to have sweets and/or soda? I have done this before too, and it is just as hard as giving it up for a period of time as it is to have it once a week but both are doable.
I know this is doable by all of us for whatever reason we want to do it. Whether it is just proving to someone you are not addicted to sugar or it is proving to yourself and others giving up sugar is no big deal and anyone can do it. Maybe it is a friend you know could use a No Sugar/No Soda Buddy.....what a great gift of service and friendship!!! Whatever the reason WE CAN DO THIS!!
Get ready only five more days and the journey begins!!!!
