What do you see here? Me, I see temptation and I hear it calling my name! This was the aisle that always made me pick something from its shelf.
Sometimes going to a store or just going to the local CVS pharmacy can be overwhelming to a overweight person. I use to spend a lot of time here grabbing what I felt like in the moment and inhaling it on the way home.
Today, however, when I went to the CVS pharmacy where I use to struggle to leave without Fritos and nacho cheese dip or candy I didn't think once about it. I was able to go in and buy my medicines and leave with no temptations, no desire to buy one of these "grab me snack" foods. Now that is a NSV (non-scale victory)!
When I have days like today, I know that I am going to be okay. I know that I will never go back to the person who weighed 231 pounds with out of control blood sugar and chronic pain. Its such a wonderful feeling to know this because it gives me hope for a future of happiness and health.
This is what it is all about! When was the last time you had this realization or have you?
