willpower

Sometimes the urge to eat something you know you really shouldn't is ridiculously overwhelming to us all. Today was one of those days when a craving almost did me in. It was the smell - the garlic, the butter, the tomato sauce, the cheese. Ohhh the cheese! I had to stop at the quick mart near my house, which is right next door to the Little Ceasars..... It was ALL I could do not to give in and go through the door and purchase a box of cheese bread. I pass by there twice a day, sometimes more and it usually doesn't bother me, but today it was ridiculous. I was proud of myself for not giving in, but hours later, I'm still wanting that dang bread!

    I'm surprised you can eat cheese bread with a band. Any of the really soft breads do not work well for me at all, but I know everyone has different tolerances. I ran into someone recently who drinks diet soda all the time, and I truly thought that was impossible.

    Anyway, way to overcome the urge. Like SLUNQUIS said, plan some bread into your dinner, but I would recommend a good quality whole wheat bread....

    Great to get through it! But every now and then "plan" the bread into your dinner as a treat. My guess is that it may not taste as good as you thought it would AND/OR it will taste great but because you remained in your limits, you still feel like you won. Either way it's win-win for you. Yea!

    You got thru it. It is very hard to not give in to temptation.I try to use focus and determination, but sometimes smells over whelm all of that. Good for you that you were able to persevere. emoticon
