I resisted temptation and I won!!!!!!!

Postby natalie » Fri Mar 03, 2006 1:15 pm

I am so so proud of myself at the moment.At work we had a pizza and icecream day and I resisted temptation.I did not have one bit of it.
This is a big thing for me because when people pressure me like that I find it hard to say no but I did it :D

Has anyone else got a story to share of how you resisted temptation and won?

I have weigh in toomorow and I so want a loss.I am nearley up to 40 kilos lost.I am so exited. :D :D

Congratulations Natalie, on the weight loss and for resisting those work place temptations.

My temptation is:
On weekends, my mother always makes a European style fatty cake for my husbands and my visit.
They are so delectable and I remember growing up, how delicious they taste. I do drool as I'm slurping down my coffee, but I don't give in. At first mum got annoyed with me for not having any saying I was silly to not have a slice. But I have said no so often now that she is used to it and leaves me alone.

I have terrible trouble at my work morning teas, but they usually have something healthy, like watermelon or grapes so I have some of those so I don't feel left out. Also all the people at my work know I'm trying to lose weight and they're all really good and don't try and force food on me (or anyone else for that matter).

On Thursday we had another morning tea and someone had made chocolate ripple cake which is my fave. But I resisted.

And it's paying off. I took the morning off to buy a bike and some new clothes and I now fit in to ladies jeans and I'm 2 sizes in to the range (i.e there's one ladies size above mine)!! No more bloke jeans!!

Now I just have to get used to the low cut :?
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

You go Girls. :P :P :P :P

My biggest resistance would have to be chocolate. Unsally can resist but I do cave in sometimes. Then I try and limit myself to one or two small pieces. I TRY.

Thanks Natalie for those kinds words. I decided to change my ticker to my first goal so it doesn't look like I have to much to lose in my eyes. (one kilo at a time). Only another 20 to go after that goal. Many small goals seam more achievable to me then one HUGE :( goal.

Thankyou tabbycat

Yes tabbcat that is a good idea with breaking it up into small goals because I know at the start it all seems so daunting.I remember getting on the scales and when I realised I needed to loose 48 kilos I thought my life was over. Well maybee I was being a bit melodramatic :lol: but at the time I felt alot of anxiety because in my heart I knew that this was it and that it was going to happen but I also knew how hard It was going to be but in all honesty now I can honestley say that it was not as bad as I thought.

I rekon the hardest part ( for me personally) is the last lot of weight.I am now inside the last 10 kilos to loose but I am finding it hard to get any decent losses like I used to.At the start it was great.I was loosing a kilo every week without fail - sometimes more....but now :cry: :cry:

I will get there in the end - we all will its just time and I am not one to be patient :lol:

I think I will have a gain this week.I am due for my monthilies on sat and that is my weigh in day but Its ok because I know it is not a real gain.

When do you weigh in?

Cheers!

OOOOOOOOO u guys are so good to not give into your temptations. Personally I am hopeless!!!! My will power is shocking. But I have been fairly good with the whole chocolate thing over the last couple of months. I have only bought it just the once, on Tuesday when I went shopping. It was that whole PMS thing happening. But my partner ate most of it and I spaced mine out over 2 days. So in the end only ended up with about 80g total over 2 days so I wasn't as much as a guts as I usually are!!! But the fact that I hadn't been buying 2 blocks every shopping trip has amazed me. I haven't even thought oooooo I need to get some choccy! My old excuse was always "well it was on special"!!! It wasn't on special on tuesday!!!

HI Groovy chic

YOu done really well to space that chocie out.Well done!
DOnt worry about the specials because it is really quite expensive in other ways.I use the weight watchers system to count my points so before I eat anything I always look at it and say "can I afford this ?"

Well done once again on the portion control.I dont know if I could be that strong if I had chocie in my house ( i never keep chocie here!)

Well done Natalie and everyone else for resisting all those temptations. :D

When I am so tired like now because of extra work and kitchen renovations I have very little resistence and it is so hard.
