Halloween danger

Right, I thought i was getting ok (day 3 and a complete change of attitude: I am not counting calories but am simply ditching junk food and out of hours snacking) - that is my plan for now. BUT I have just got the Halloween treats in for tonight; I am ok around sweets but NOT the chocolate or the scary mini doughnuts. Am feeling in my danger zone - which is why I am straight on here, reading inspirational quotes and reminding myself why tonight is a no no for me.

For me treats and alcohol are for special occasions such as birthdays or lunch with friends, I have no intention of cutting them out completely. But I want to get back to my childhood of enjoying them as a rare treat; tonight is NOT for me, it is for the children. I wilnot be dressing up and so iwill not be scoffing. Looking forward to Sunday lunch with friends instead.

Thanks for listening to me, I feel better now, focused again.

Well done for your self talk... these things tonight are not for you.. and if there are any left over.. take them out of your house and give them away!!

Well done for using us to provide focus. I agree about the treats tonight being for the children - in my case the two little boys across the road. We are the only house their Mum lets them come to so I have to make sure they get some goodies.
