Saying 'No!" to biscuits.
Tuesday, August 05, 2014
One of my main problems associated with my weight gain is my temptation to eat Rich Tea biscuits. I don't even eat them because I love them. I eat them because they are there. I don't buy them, my husband does, and its my hand that opens the tins to devour them one at a time.
However, on Sunday I started trying something new. Each time I wanted a biscuit I said to myself, "You can have one in another hour."
So in an hours time, I just repeated, "You can have one in an hours time."
This simple mind game was enough for me to go the entire day without eating one biscuit.
So I tried it again the next day. And guess what? ... I didn't eat a single biscuit. Not one little biscuit made its way past my lips.
I felt so empowered by this. One single, small goal and I feel I can tackle the world.
So the next thing I'm thinking is to not eat wheat bread to see if I have an intolerance to it.
One small baby step at a time.
