Dont ask me why, but I
did it again!
Here I was controlling my weight
nicely, and then I had to go and ruin my system. Sadly I have
to keep learning my lessons the hard way. I know better, but sometimes,
I get cocky, and I have to be taught all over again.
What did I do you ask? Well,
I thought the family needed a treat. After all, its summer
right? We need a little fun, right? So one day while grocery shopping
I let them get a huge bag of mini candy bars. Big mistake.
I dont have candy in my
house, and with good reason. We all need to watch our weight.
I also buy only two bottles
of soda a week and when thats gone, everyone has to switch
to water or juice. These are my main methods of control. If I
dont want us to eat it, I dont buy it.
The problem with the bag of
candy was that I ate as much as anyone else. And I kept eating.
Pretty soon I had my old sweet-tooth back, and was baking cakes
and cookies right and left, planning deserts for every other meal--instead
of my usual once a month.
All of a sudden my weight was
creeping up and I was craving chocolate three times a day. Nice
way to spend the summer. Im thinking Why, why, why?
Then I remembered that evil bag of candy. Thats how it all
started. Thats how I lost control of my weight.
Now I have to wean myself away,
stock up on my favorite fruits and force myself to eat them when
I want chocolate cake. Hopefully the cravings will stop soon,
as they have in the past. In the meantime--I am suffering, believe
me. NEVER! AGAIN!
