Anyone willing to share personal stumbling blocks or biggest temptations? How are you able to overcome?
(Reading about other people's willpower helps me a ton. I've trolled through the archives for the past few weeks and have exhausted all the key search words terms "struggle," "temptation," and "giving in.")
Mine are sugar and alcohol. (Yeah, you've all heard it before.) I was a 2-3 drinks-a-day kind of girl, mostly high-cal craft beers. Now I allow myself ONE drink during the week, usually a glass of red wine on Wednesday night, and up to 3 drinks between Friday and Saturday nights. Most nights to help stave off the drinking urge I pour myself some club soda with a lime wedge.
I also love my sweets. Saying no to the bagels and coffee cake in the breakroom, plus the routine after-supper dessert, has been brutal. An orange in the afternoon and a bite of dark chocolate after supper are helping me power through!
