When I started this journey of finding myself, I decided I would not deprive myself and so far it has worked. If I want something I eat it! I have found that with this concept I normally do not over eat as much. Often I find myself stopping after a bite or two and asking myself if it is really worth the calories. I still have my moments and my weakness though, but the difference is I try to not beat myself up and just make an extra effort to get back to what I know I need to do.
As for that bag of chips....it finally got down to the really crushed up pieces of chips. As I dug in I finally said ENOUGH!! I crumpled it up and threw it away!! Yes I will eat chips again, but my lesson for today:
Don't Deprive...but leave that GIGANTOR bag of chips on the shelf at the store!!
