I'm A Girl Who Can't Say No

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

For those of you who know the show Oklahoma you will know this song. What can I say I am a girl who can't say no but unlike the character who sings this it isn't men who is my problem.
Have to face it. It is food. I use to say it I am on the see diet. I see it I eat it For one who is obese this is quite a problem Unfortunately you have to eat and add there is food all around saying no especially to those one knows one should is very tough.
Finally why is it when looking for something to eat, it isn't the fruits and veggies that call to me but the cakes, chips, bread etc

    Just wanted to add an encouragement to your Blog. Knowing there will be better days ~ as well as those days when all we can think about is something sweet.

    Finally clearing out all the threats from my refrigerator and cabinet shelves caused me to really see how much space was left.....and weren't my cabinets so much bigger now!!

    Reach for the real treats: fresh fruits and those great lo-cal parfaits that taste so good.

    You can do this!!!

    Adding you to my Friends List and hope you are agreeable to that. Want to keep tabs on you. Let me know how you are doing!!

    I agree with the others..... get the trigger foods out of the house, replace them with healthy snacks. When you have a craving for something truly decadent, plan for it, EARN it with extra exercise. I try to have a "planned indulgence" meal once a week. anything I want, as much as I want, no counting calories, but watch portion control. I find it satisfies me, and keeps me from wanting anything else during the week.

    Fill y0ur house with healthy snacks then the cakes, cupcakes and breads will not be there to call your name. Make sure you have the healthy snacks ready for quick consumption. A bag of baby carrots or almonds are my favorite go to.

    You are worth it. I like the suggestion of having small individual portions in the house of those things you really want. I find when I deprive myself of something I am really craving, I do bad. I've also found that the longer I've been eating well, the more I reach for healthier foods instead of the junk I used to grab.

    I love old musicals and have collected DVDs of a lot of them. They have so many upbeat songs that I can listen to (or sing, or hum) to get myself motivated...Oh, What a Beautiful Morning, The Hills Are Alive, Ac-cent-u-ate The Positive, Hey, Look Me Over, Them Sobbin' Women, Ya Cain't Git A Man With A Gun, June Is Bustin' Out All Over.
    Turn the "Can't Say No" song into your "fight" song. Sing to the pantry or fridge when it tries to tempt you.
    And keep going one step at a time. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I hear you! All week I've wanted ice-cream instead of the low-fat yogurt and fresh fruit in the refigerator, so I bought one of those tiny single portion size of the most irresistable flavor I could find (no plain vanilla) and allowed myself to enjoy it. Once the craving was satisfied, I got back on track. I know that I personally can not keep chips and ice-cream in the house...too much temptation for me to handle. So, if you can't control your cravings for those things, get them out of easy reach. Good luck

    I know how you feel but you have to take this situation one day at a time and start cutting back on your favorite foods one thing at a time. I wish you all the best. emoticon
