Doughnut Temptation

Well the scale actually showed a loss this morning, so no one had to hear me scream…lol. It wasn’t a big loss, but any loss is good when trying to lose weight.

Today’s challenge proved a lot to me. It proved that I can and do have willpower when needed the most.

Hubby and I were at Wal-Mart, and of course I had not eaten lunch, so yes I was hungry. And what’s the first thing that catches my eye…DOUGHNUTS!!! Oh my how they looked good, damn good to be honest. And there’s me eyeing them for all I’m worth (I think there might have been some drool there too….haha). I even said to my husband about how good they looked and how much I wanted one. Yet, he said not a word and just looked at me. I think he was just waiting to see what I was going to do.

Now, I’m not going to try and tell you that I didn’t want one, for that would be a line of sh!t. I really think at that moment I would of tackled anyone just to have one. I could almost taste it already and that made the desire to have one even worse.

These are the moments when dieting that let’s you know who has the control, you or the food. I know in the past, the food would of won by far. I never used to stop and really think about what I was grabbing when on the go. If it looked good and it’s what I wanted, it’s what I got. Those are not good habits when you want to lose weight.

I am very proud to say that the doughnut did indeed stay on the shelf!!! It wasn’t easy at all, but when I stopped and really thought about it, I knew it wasn’t a good idea to get it, period.

I feel pretty damn good as I write this knowing that I was able to fight that urge of wanting something that I know is not healthy for me. I know that I can still have doughnuts and such on those special occasions, just not as often as I use to. After all, it is that kind of eating that led me to be over-weight in the first place and will do me no good in trying to lose weight.

Today’s challenge…..fought doughnut temptation!!!

Till next time…..remember to eat healthy, get some exercise, and most of all, love yourself!!! Now go make it count!!


  1. SCREW YOU, DOUGHNUTS!! Way to go!!! I wish I could have the self control you do, but if there are doughnuts in front of me, they are devoured!

    Also, for some reason my computer is being uncooperative, and I'm not able to reply to your comment on my last post. I'm sorry. I wasn't ignoring you. I wanted to say thank you so much for being supportive. You are really just so nice!

    Keep up your excellent work!

  2. Guess you should of waited to read today's post...the doughnut got the better of me. But trust me, my hubby will make me make up for that one.

    There is no need to be sorry, life happens. But you are very much welcome. We all need as much support as we can get and that is one of the reasons that I am here. You can do it, believe in yourself, that is the first step to making weight loss work for you!!
