I deserve it
Saturday, January 11, 2020
I have been either losing or maintaining for well over a year and am proud of myself. I've done well. Today is my husbands's birthday and I made a donut run this morning. The thought popped into my head that it has been a hard week and I deserve to treat myself to one of those cinnamon rolls that are as big as my size 10 shoes. I hardly ever eat sweets and I don't think that I like these particular donuts all that much - it was more the idea that I DESERVED something. Then a thought popped into my head that took me by surprise. "You deserve to eat something that will make your body feel good and give you a good start to the day". It was a sincere thought, not a thought to trick myself into doing what I should do. I know it sounds silly but it feels like a turning point. My problems with my weight have always been in my head. I know my body now and that much sugar and grease would make me feel sluggish and blah all day. I came home and had a sprouted grain english muffin with some apple butter and it was healthy and delish. And I deserved it!
