I have come to realize that I have no will-power at all. Ok, maybe that is a little extreme. I have almost no will-power. My girls and I went to Wal-Mart for a few needed items and just happened on the candy aisle. I know from my past that having candy in the house is a bad thing, by how quickly I finished the chocolate that I bought in Hershey PA. in May. But, Wal-Mart had M&M's on sale and I couldn't resist. My favorite are peanut M&M's. I think that they are addicting. Could I take just one handful and then leave them alone? You know the answer, no way! I took one handful divided them by color (check out my Jellybean blog) ate them and then waited. I tried to resist...no, I'm not going back to the kitchen...oh,ok,just one more handful. It's really disgusting how I sabotage any effort I have of dieting. If I say that I should cut down on calories, I will eat something I shouldn't usually within the day, sometimes hour. The best strategy I have is to avoid having candy in the house, although I was so desperate for chocolate the other day that I ate a handful of chocolate chips. I was soooo feeling like an addict.
It is a very good thing that I am not tempted by anything more harmful. Or should I say a GOD-thing.
