I Don't Care If It's Free!!!!!!!

Thursday, January 20, 2011

During the Holidays I noticed something about myself.....I can't turn down free food!!! We went out for luncheons, folks would bring in pastries, the job provided bagels and pizza and we even celebrate birthdays with cake and ice cream. For every single event I'd show up and eat. I KNEW I couldn't have it but I'd eat it anyway. Why??? Because it was free!!!!!

But guess what?!?!? It is 2011 and I am fully aware of this problem so by putting this blog out there I PROMISE not to let it get the best of me. I'M DONE!!!

I CAN and WILL say NO to free food!!!

I don't need it and will survive if I don't eat it!

    Oh, that's funny! It's amazing how those "little things" add calories to our day. This post made me think of how I used to look for the free samples in Sam's Club. Keep up the good work!

    This is an awesome blog & such a great reward when something that was a weakness is realized, & turned in to a positive transition.. emoticon

    Here's another gem:

    If it wasn't food that people ate 100 years ago, it still isn't, so don't eat it!

    Chemicals, preservatives, enhancements, coloring, tons of salt and sugar...great grandma wouldn't have made it that way, and certainly would not allow her family to eat it!

    Me lo dices muchacha, and the funny thing about all these FREE foods aren't always tailored to the healthy side! It's always those refine sugary carbs, lo q te pone la panza mas grande tovadia. Uno tratando de rebajar la pipa y ellos te la quieren explotar!!!! emoticon

    Good for you to overcome those FREE foods! Pa lante!

    YAYYYY!! Great job girl!! We have luncheons left & right ALL the freakin time at my work. It's ridiculous. But I skip out on them. Next week the theme is BBQ! EEEEK! I'm definitely not attending. No thank you. Great job for realizing FREE is not always a good thing. emoticon
