What Is Your Temptation?????

        Everyone has something that can be classified as a weakness/temptation. If you take a minute to examine your life, what would be that thing in your life?

       I am trying to be real and relevant this year. I can honestly say my weaknesses are breads and sweets. I have always loved these two dangerous food groups. Think back to the last time you went to that restaurant that brings out the basket's of bread. Did you stop at just one serving of bread? What about two servings? I know it is hard to say no to these delicious things. I would not stop at 3 or 4, I got to be this fat because I would consume 5 or 6 rolls.

      Sweets can be such a stumbling block for me as well. Doughnuts, ice cream, cakes, pies, brownies, etc.... all begin to tremble when they see me. If I am going to make this weight loss dream a reality I will have to overcome the temptations of these sweets.

     For the most part, I can say no to the foods that I should not be eating. Every now and then, I get into some funk and slip up and eat something that I regret before I swallow the last bite. I hate myself for it. I am my biggest enemy and stumbling block. I have to get my will power under control. I am absolutely sick of this roller coaster. Something has to change.

Fed up with being the fat guy. Must make some more changes.



  1. You can do it!!! I know you can. I need to get of my roller coaster as well and get busy with losing this weight. My husband told me that the older we get, the harder it is to loose the fat. It takes up to an hour of exercise a day to keep the extra off of our aging bodies. Thanks babe for the encouragement....lol

  2. It is very hard, especially when Lavonda is such a skilled baker. It has been fun though. You can do it. If I can give up Coke, anyone can do a little something.
