Keeping It Very Real

After writing my last post my cravings for crap ceased until now…It’s after midnight, and I just had an incredible conversation with an incredible friend.  I should be going to sleep, but I want pizza…no, I mean…I really want pizza.

I had pizza for dinner tonight, and I ate responsibly.  Before the pizza arrived I consumed a substantial salad that was filled with greens and very light on the fat-free dressing.  I also drank an entire glass of water which is pretty standard before every meal. Now, because I ate so responsibly, there’s a box of left over pizza (something that I usually cannot be bothered to reheat) in the fridge. 

I’m going to try to sleep, and I hope to wake up feeling like myself again…you know, the girl who is in control of everything that she eats and doesn’t think twice about things like candy or buffets or pizza.  If that doesn’t work, I’ll grab my sneakers and sweat the cravings away.  I’m not going to let pizza or chips or candy control me.  It doesn’t work that way anymore

Oh, did I mention that I want some candy too?   Really Kenlie?  Yep…I haven’t had cravings like this since beginning my weight-loss journey over 20 months ago.  What… the… _ _ _ _?  Alright…that’s it! I’m going to beat this…just had to lay it all out.

    oh that damn battle. I know it so well. Just stay strong Kenz. If you win this one, you start winning the rest of them. I know you know that, but sometimes hearing someone say it helps to reinforce it. You're my girl Kenlie, you got this!

    You can fight the cravings, it takes some strong will power to fight those things off. Shoot, I just say two nuts in a bucket and get what I want, lol. That's a good idea, work out instead of caving in. I hope you have an excellent Friday!!!

    The only way I can control those cravings is to not have the temptation within reach. My advice throw the pizza away.

    I'm going to say it, nothing tastes better than thin feels is a crock o' cr*p! Sometimes somethings do taste better. And the longer I don't have it the worse it is when I eat it.

    I hate cravings. Then again when I want pizza every day it's not really a craving is it? It's an obsession. LOL
