That Darn Junk Food and Sweets

Toby's Tails


Day Sixteen: Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it

I have been blessed with a pretty good life so far. I have a wonderful family, an awesome husband, and great friends. I have a place to live, a good job, a working car, etc. There are so many others in our country and our world who are suffering whether they are homeless, poor, starving, sick, or lonely. So I thank the Lord every day for the blessings that I have!

But...if I had to pick one thing that's difficult for me, I would say it's my habit to eat too much junk food and sweets. This lovely habit in turn affects my goal to lose a few lb's on the scale. 

How am I trying to overcome it? I'm trying not to have that food around so it doesn't tempt me. If it's not here, I can't eat it. And when I do get those cravings, I'm trying to choose healthier options such as fruits or vegetables. I try to remind myself of my goals when I really want that candy or cookie or chips and think if it's really worth it. And I fail...ALOT...but I'll keep trying and see how it goes.


  1. oh sweets ..definitely my weakness!

  2. Sweets is my total weakness, mainly anything with Chocolate. I try my best to not keep them around, but then I want to bake to calm my nerves and...its a downward cycle.

  3. Chocolate, oh my goodness!!! Totally weakness. I've actually been pushing myself to not eat junk food and its been good. I eat pretzels every night for a snack. Sure, it may not be the best choice and I could eat something better, its so much better than chips or popcorn or something. Sweets though, its been hard. I'd like to lose a few pounds also, especially since we'll be on vacation in a few weeks. I've been having the same mind set, if its not in the house I wont eat it. Sometimes when we go to the grocery store I'm so temped to buy something. But then I think to myself "Thats a few dollars I could be spending on something that will give me more happiness and will benefit me more".
