I gave up donuts. Over 5 years ago.
Why? I value myself. Donuts were #1 on the list of foods to stop eating.
Each Saturday morning co-workers at my part-time job would bring in breakfast. Usually donuts.
I brought in egg casseroles. Mom made them. So I made a resolution: No Donuts.
And that was my first step toward eating healthier.
A donut put in front of me will get eaten from time to time. I never buy donuts. I don’t get an urge for them.
Nearby they are a temptation, otherwise they don’t enter my mind.
I’ve given up fast food, chocolate with filling(failing at this), most processed food(hamburger helper, microwave dinners, etc.). I make my own taco or sloppy joe spices. I bake my own brownies, cookies, etc.
I am not 100% successful. I’ve eaten at Taco Bell in the last year. I still reach for the Manwich some nights.
It’s the thought that counts. I’ll take 90% healthier and enjoy my occasional donut. The treats become treats. I feel better on all counts.
Celebtrate the small victories. Ignore small losses. I Build my castle little by little.
By the time I die King Arthur will be jealous.
