Won the Battle

I'm still working on the war...

It's just after 2 and time for a meal... so I headed over to the kitchen to warm up my edamame which I sprinkle a little soy sauce over to add some flavor. I walk into the kitchen only to find one of these staring me in the face!

So there I am with a major dilemma... soy beans or doughnuts... (I'm just keepin' it real) I won this battle today - I walked away quickly and reminded myself that I need the protein, I am tracking my food intake, and it just isn't worth it.

For that split second though - it sure was tempting... I really wish there was a mental (brain altering) aspect of weight loss surgery... but we have to fight these battles all our own. For today - in my war against my weight - I'm doing well!


  1. I hear ya, but the question is really "edamame or nasuea, shakes, and sweats?" Thank God for dumping syndrome! :)

    Plus, that stuff just doesn't taste as good as it used to. Especially when it means you have to feel guilty about it all day!

  2. I actually had to go out this morning before church and BUY donuts for the fellowship time! I was slightly annoyed at first but then discovered that it really didn't bother me. It's such a mind game sometimes, isn't it?


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
