I feel the idea of a cheat/treat day has destroyed my concept of trying to lose weight. I try to be discipline all week and when weigh in comes in I treat myself. Why do I treat myself?
“Yippie!!! I lost weight this week! Let me treat myself to pizza!”
Why would I treat myself? A treat should be something that happens once in a while..the most once a month. The idea of cheat/treat day has really messed up my image for trying to lose weight because I am rewarding myself with what I am addicted to..FOOD!
Do AA members treat/cheat? Do drug addicts have these days in rehab? Why do people who diet do this then? We are addicted to food! We are addicts. We should not indulge with our addiction.
Do not get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with having that pizza or ice cream once in a while..but every week? I think we should come together and maybe have a cheat meal OR snack once a month if you are addicted to food.
My name is Jackie. I am a food addict. I am stronger then the food. I do not need the food. Food is not a treat. Food is here to keep me on earth to live..not as a gift.
I am interested in what you all think. I hope I do not offend anyone. I am just tired of the cheat/treat day.
