DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 21 March 2013

I found a small lose this morning. It's coming off slowly but that is probably due to the oreos. I'm pretty sure the things have some addictive compound in the cream. That's got to be why I can't stay out of them. It couldn't possibly be that I have a lack of self control.

I found the other half of the why you're eating and how to stop! It could work in a couple months. Right now? Not so much. I'm suppose to ask myself when did I last eat, am I really hungry, if I shouldn't be hungry then why am I eating? If it's just an impulse or mindless pie hole filling then they suggest you go for a walk, do something fun and active. Well... it was 20 degrees outside, everything is white, I had a 20 lb 9 month old little man strapped to one leg demanding my oreo, a 9 yr old telling me something about bird feeders (I stopped listening when she got to the list of things I had to buy her so she could make the thing), and two dogs circling each other trying to decide who farted. I ate the cookie. The good news is everyone is eating the cookies and they should be gone by this weekend. I'm counting down the days when I can tell everyone to go outside and play and to get out of the kitchen. You watch.. they will have a blast digging up my strawberry plants.

In other new and exciting news. I managed to write yesterday. Little man went to bed and I stayed up an hour to fiddle. I've almost complete a chapter on running. Well.. jogging.. Maybe that's a little much. It kind of turns into walking in a way that looks like jogging while being stalked by cows. Am I the next amazing writer? Prolly not.. but I had myself laughing and thats what counts.

I totally believe you could be the next amazing writer! and i'm with you on the oreos. twice the trouble when they're double stuff'd

Those cow stalking incidents are so tragic! Rolling on the floor here reading about this! I suppose putting cow poop around the strawberry plants wouldn't help-they're farmers kids, cow poop really wouldn't be much of a barrier.

You? Laughing? Nahhhh ...;-). Hey if you can eat oreos and have a small loss then take it woman! Total depreivation causes binging and if they are still there and everyone is eating them then you haven't had half a box like we would have in the old days. That's learning to make it a true lifestyle change which is AMAZING! Real like is going to include oreos and it's just a fact. Add in the fact that you are becoming more aware and you are leaps and bounds ahead of where you were 6 months ago. KUDOS!

Jess.. they aren't double stuffed.. they're MEGA stuffed!! I saw them at the store and couldn't resist. Mega? Seriously... mega? Before I knew it two packages were in the cart because the coupon beside them said buy two get $1 off. It was a conspiracy!

So far I have 4 chapters. Wickedly Delicious Delights, The incredible edible thong, need a new title for the 3rd one.... and run cupcake run!! I think fiber farts is next. Maybe if I had some structure to how I write I would get somewhere.

I hate those coupons! Always making me buy two of some junk! It is a conspiracy!

High fructose corn syrup makes me want to binge on sugar and keep eating more of things you shouldn't. My poor kids have no sweets in the house unless I bake them. It is safer for everyone that way! :)

You still have cookies left??..Awesome...not eating the whole lot just goes to show you have some control..Congrats on the loss..any is good..Have a good day and don't let those cows push you around..:O)

Iama... I trying to take that route myself. Every now and then I give in. You should try my banana bread recipe. My kids love it! 
21 Mar 13 by member: thynes
Mmmmmm banana bread. I want banana bread. Thynes right now I just throwing things at the paper and seeing if they stick. As soon as things are cleaned up I'll let you read at your own risk. lol

I gave you that recipe didn't I? The healthier one that's a banana/zuchini bread hybrid. 
21 Mar 13 by member: thynes
STOP!!!!! I love Banana Bread!!!! That and Cheesecake.. My one other vice is Lays Sour cream and onion chips. If any of the above are in my house all bets are off!!!.

HFCS makes me feel the same way-horrible stuff! Good for you for not letting your kids have it, it's only in the last few years it's gotten so prevalent and really, who knows what long term effects it will have?

I don't see the banana bread recipe. That doesn't mean you didn't send it though. My memory is about as good as a fleas. Maybe I can make banana muffins for when I'm in a hurry in the morning.

DFW - sent it to you

Not the Oreos! You must be a cream person, not the cookie person. I absolutely ADORE the doublestuff!!!!!! EVIL good with milk. I don't know how you can even buy them! I find the Why am I "hungry" or wanting to eat a very difficult question to answer. I think it is a lot of learned habbits that we don't even realize are bad. Food is so central in our lives. Congrads on the writing! Interesting you are writing about running :-) I thought you found time to actually run LOL. Have a great day and as always, wishing warm weather so you can send the distractions outside to play:-)

I never buy oreos anymore or I would eat them all myself, especially double stuffed or mint. I've so been there when the kids are whining at you or talking a mile a minute, and you have your own stuff going on in your head, sometimes that junk food just magically gets in your hand and to your mouth before you even know it.
