Well, I fell off the wagon. I guess it happens to everyone. Last Friday we went to a funeral in Bangor, and on the way back, we stopped to eat dinner at a truck stop called Dysart's. The food is awesome and I couldn't resist buying a package of No Bake Cookies from their bakery dept. (They contain peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate...lots of protein, I figured!)
What I didn't give thought to is the fact that they are also carbohydrate heavy--sugary--which set off a carbohydrate craving frenzy! In addition to the cookies, I was soon also eating ice cream, and then French fires. Yikes! My weight went up two pounds!
Once I recognized that the cookies had unleashed my carbohydrate appetite, I took control and am now back down the two pounds, back to a total weight loss of 54.2 lbs. Thank goodness I woke up before I had incurred too much damage!
I can't believe the power of sugar! I almost never eat ice cream, even when I'm not watching my weight (It's just not a favorite); yet there I was, begging my husband to stop at the local Dairy Queen so I could devour a chocolate ice cream cone in a frenzy.
Just a minor skirmish lost in my major war against weight. I'm back on track and will be losing again, now.
I AM STRONGER THAN SUGAR!
