It's been a lifelong struggle, but this time I'm making a lifestyle change. No point in giving up, because I will always end up in the same dilemma. I want to be happy with myself, not disgusted with what I eat and that I don't do exercise. That's all changing now, and I plan on keeping that change permanent. No one said it was going to be easy to do this, nor did they say it would be a flawless journey, but I'm prepared to make the effort and learn from my mistakes as I go along!
I resisted carrot cake shortly after I arrived back at the office from the hospital. It honestly wasn't that difficult to resist. When 3:00 pm rolled around, that's when it got a little difficult. It was snack time, but I was debating between carrot cake and my yogurt. I knew the yogurt was obviously the healthier choice, but I just wasn't in the mood for it. What tipped the scale in my mind was when my mom said "I can taste the grease in this thing" (talking about the carrot cake). That made my decision for me. I ate the yogurt. Yay me!
