I did it!!
I bought 72 pieces of ‘Krispy Kreme doughnuts’ for my colleagues as part of my leaving do party. And was I tempted to have one?... NO WAY!! I KNOW!! Even with the temptation and all?! NOPE!! I resisted... not even a tinny-winny bite!!

I followed the advices on this forum to plan ahead of such events where high carbs will be present. I made some flaxseed cake (ingredients: flaxseed, coconut oil, eggs & baking powder) and had a healthy slice at home before facing the BATTLE...Laughing Laughing

This has given me a lot of confidence, considering the way I was feeling when I started this journey. I would not have done this without your supports – so thanks.

So, I dedicate this victory to you all out there that have reached your goals but continued to support us who have a long way to go. I dedicate this to all those who have just started or restarting like me, for the bravery and determination no matter the progress you see (or not). And to those in-between, well, you know you are already a STAR.

This sounds like receiving an OSCAR award..lol lol..Rolling Eyes Laughing

Don't blame me... I never thought I would feel like this especially with the difficulties I had in week one.....
Please Lord, help me through this journey.....

Doughnuts always look better then they taste. They are not worth the calories. Good for you that you didn't cave in Smile

Wow, good for you, Princess! Isn't it a great feeling when everyone around you is eating useless junk food and you are resisting? Nice job!

Correction: not "Resisting", but CHOOSING not to eat it. Big difference: "resisting" sounds like you're white knuckling through the situation, but making a choice gives you power and accomplishment.

thank you all for the compliments.... and yes, it was a choice. I felt a tinge of pity and guilt subjecting colleagues to consuming the donuts but I had to keep up the leaving do rituals.
Please Lord, help me through this journey.....
