Off today to take my 7 year old grand daughter to see Paddington Bear.
We are doing this at lunch time so this means I can have a bar of chocolate or indeed some raisin covered in chocolate.
The wonderful difference this time round with my eating is that I've dropped the all or nothing thinking which would say no treats full stops. Now for the booze I know a 'treat' for me is completely out the question as once I've started drinking I just cant stop. It took me many years to work this out but 19 months off the drink is not worth throwing away for a little treat.
With eating I know that for others certain foods to them is like the booze is for me so it's no sugar full stop.
For me a treat is okay. Its taken a pressure off that just didn't need to be there and one that always led me to over eat over the years.
I am over the moon to be on this site and have passed the word around to 3 friends who may well join.
Thank you everyone
have a lovely day
