Today is a very proud day for me. I realized it has been 51 days since I have had a Hershey’s Hug or Kiss! Now to the average person you may be thinking…WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?! Well glad you asked because I am going to tell you. I want you to think of an addict of any kind. Now think about them quiting whatever they are addicted to for 51 days straight. Big deal huh?
Seriously I was addicted to these little hugs and kisses. To the point I would eat up to an entire bag a day and 4-6 bags a week, all by myself! They hid easily behind things in the fridge, in the console of my car and in the back of the cupboard. Believe it or not here we are 51 days later and I am still finding the little wrappers! Seriously, do ya think I had a problem?
We all know I have not been perfect in the 51 days on this weight loss journey. There have been to many days I took Angie’s Skrewitol pills, but I have not had 1 hug or kiss. Don’t think it has not crossed my mind because it has, especially the day they were on sale and I could have bought 2 bags for the price of 1. What I have learned is that I am Super Woman Strong! This is something that I cannot believe I have done. It feels damn good! What feels even better is that I do not even crave them. I am craving things like celery with laughing cow cheese and turkey.
I have conquered this addiction! I know better than to try just one because I recognize it is a problem for me. Today I am a true believer that if you can get past the point of craving something you will forget about it and it will get better and easier to stay away from. This is a good day, they day I won part of a battle and do not feel like I have to keep fighting!
