Resisting Temptation to Eat

Weighed in this morning at 177 pounds, down another pound from yesterday.

Yesterday, I ate 6 ounces of jerky, plus 4 cans of Diet Coke. I didn't do any exercise, but I did mow the lawn if that counts.

All afternoon and evening long, the wife was in the kitchen cooking up food for this Thanksgiving. Mostly pies. She made a pumpkin pie, an apple pie, a pumpkin cheese cake, some cupcakes, and some dinner rolls. I so badly wanted to eat some of it. She even offered me the cupcakes or dinner rolls.

Those dinner rolls are basically the "yeast rolls" that they serve up at a Roadhouse Restaurant. If you could only smell them when they come out of the oven!

But I did a pretty good job of just staying out of the kitchen, and staying in my office, except to mow the lawn.

She also has oatmeal raisin cookies in there too, and those are my favorite cookies. Normally, I would have eaten them all. But I did pretty good to resist temptation.

I don't know if I'm totally in control of my desire to eat, but I'm definitely in more control than I was a few years ago. If anything, that's where my weight loss progress stems from, controlling the desire to eat. The beef jerky is just a low-carb, low-fat, food that helps me lose weight. It's really about training yourself to stick to the diet.

Obviously, the simplest way to lose weight, is to stop eating so much. If we could all do that, then no one would make a million dollars on the next dieting fad. Before I started the beef jerky diet, I actually spent a few years training myself to change habits. It's not as simple as just eating beef jerky. You could certainly replace your other food with beef jerky, and I'm sure you'll lose weight. But it's the discipline of sticking to your diet regimen that the success stems from.
