A conversation with myself

Me #1: "You know, they say not to deprive yourself of the things you love to eat when on a diet."

Me #2: "Yes, yes. To reward yourself with snacks, but only once in a while and in moderation."

Me #1: "So this bag of Dorritos will only be for rewards, just a tiny bowl every once in a while to not deprive yourself."

Me#2: "Splendid idea. We should also by the corn chips. They are on sale, after all."


Days later. . . .


Me #1: "This did not turn out as planned."

Me #2: "You're right. Grazing throughout the day and eating a bowl every night is not in moderation."

Me #1: "Our only option is to get these snacks out of the house. If they're not here, we won't eat them."

Me #2: "So, if we eat the rest of the Dorritos and corn chips now then we won't be tempted every night."

Me #1: "Hand me that bag."


And so goes my dieting woes...  (Bet you didn't know there were two of me).

Ah, yeah. That sounds familiar. My conversations usually start out with, "But, of course, tahini and olive oil are both healthy, so...," or, "Twizzlers are fat free, and you haven't actually eaten anything today, so you need the calories."

You don't even want to know what happens when falafel are involved.

LOL. I do the same thing about the olive oil . . . It's "good fat" so I can have as much as I want!
