I am feeling better now less cravings. I bundled myself up this morning and went to the gym. I almost didn't go for the walk but thank goodness to the 2 repliers I went and I walked my bum off And then I went to my appointment this afternoon which went well and had a nice chat with my friend that drove me .. You hear get out and clear your head and believe me I feel so much better that I did get out today.. Now for example I can see the big picture like today. I am a slow learner But I get so wrapped up in my cravings I can't see for rational thinking and tell myself STOP . I cannot seem to unwind my brain and say ok this is what I need to do to step away from this craving/situation and do this and this until it subsides. I was told a craving will last for so long and it will subside. I just don't know. I am trying so hard this year for the holidays maybe I am driving myself crazy. I told my friend eat, drink and be merry. But she said they didn't tell you everything in moderation!!
