**Day 144**

I felt better today, but not 100%.  I did force myself to exercise, and that felt good.  However, I battled cravings all day.....really bad cravings.  I wanted junk food so bad....my body and brain felt like it needed it!  I wanted a Big Mac, I wanted fries, I wanted Swiss Cake Rolls, I wanted a Snickers.  I really needed to go to the store today because we are low on food, but I didn't go.  I didn't trust myself  - I knew I would buy all that junk food, and then some.  I know it would be emotional eating because I'm just not feeling good emotionally and mentally.  I don't know what's going on with me.  My hubby is out of town - maybe that has something to do with it, but really I just don't know.  Anyway, it wasn't easy, but I made it through the day.  I know this mood will pass - I just need to fight through it, and fight I will!  Giving up, and giving in, is not an option!


  1. keep fighting those cravings! Good for you for not going to the store.. I would do the same.. because once I got there, I would be able to somehow justify each purchase of the junk!

    Hope today is a better one for you.

  2. Shannon, I haven't been able to comment on your posts, or even log in the past couple of days. But I just wanted to thank you for your lovely, and much needed comments on my blog.
    Sorry you're not feeling well... I'm SO proud of you for your strength in not giving in to the cravings. You're stronger than I am... I think I might have gone to the store anyway. You're a full blown positive influence. Keep it up!

  3. Your husband is out of town. I bet that is it. Husbands somehow manage to keep us conscious of what we're eating. At least that's how I feel about it! Just pretend he's still around...or that there's a camera on you. It might help to curb trips to the kitchen. ;)

  4. Thanks, everyone. Your encouraging words and advice always help me!
